Team News: Hamburg
Bakery Jatta (Muscle Injury), Valon Zumberi (Hand Injury), Xavier Amaechi (Ankle Injury), Elijah Krahn (Ruptured syndesmotic ligament) and Anssi Suhonen (Fibula Fracture) won’t be available for Hamburg boss Tim Walter.
Team News: Heidenheim
With a completely healthy squad available for selection, the Heidenheim manager Frank Schmidt doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash.
We feel that Hamburg will, in all likelihood, have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
At the same time, Heidenheim are also probably going to find it difficult finding the net themselves but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be pulling one back during this clash.
We’re therefore anticipating a decent 3-1 winning margin for Hamburg by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
