A sequence of steadfast showings by the Hamburg defenders has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their previous 6 fixtures in total. Over that same time, their forwards have scored 12. That trend might not be carried forward into this next game, though.
Heading into this contest, Hamburg are without an away win for the past 2 matches in the league.

Team News: Dynamo Dresden
Panagiotis Vlachodimos (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Luca Herrmann (Knee Injury), Sebastian Mai (Angina), Patrick Wiegers (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Agyemang Diawusie (Infection) and Tim Knipping (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are unavailable for Dynamo Dresden manager Alexander Schmidt.
We think that Dresden look set to employ a 4-1-2-1-2 system for this game and select Kevin Broll, Michael Akoto, Kevin Ehlers, Michael Sollbauer, Chris Löwe, Yannick Stark, Morris Schröter, Julius Kade, Christoph Daferner, R. Königsdörffer and Brandon Borrello.
Team News: Hamburg
Hamburg boss Tim Walter has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Maximilian Rohr (Muscle Injury), Tim Leibold (Ruptured cruciate ligament), Josha Vagnoman (torn tendon) and Anssi Suhonen (Torn Muscle Fibre) will not be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that Hamburg seem likely to begin the game with a 4-1-2-1-2 system, settling for D. Heuer Fernandes, Moritz Heyer, Mario Vušković, Sebastian Schonlau, Miro Muheim, Jonas Meffert, Ludovit Reis, Sonny Kittel, Manuel Wintzheimer, Robert Glatzel and Faride Alidou.
In our view, Dynamo Dresden should have enough to put a goal past this Hamburg lineup, however a single goal isn’t likely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
Our selection here is for both teams to score in a 1-2 victory for Hamburg at the end of this one. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
