Hamburg daring to dream

Munich - How times have changed for Hamburger SV. At this juncture last season, the Bundesliga's only ever-present outfit were staring the possibility of relegation in the face. Fast forward twelve months, however, and a place in Europe is a distinct possibility.

Only goal difference is keeping Thorsten Fink's men out of the top six at present, while Eintracht Frankfurt are only two points better off in the fourth and final UEFA Champions League spot with eight games left on the Bundesliga calendar.
