Hamburger SV would like to be where Holstein Kiel is, at least in sporting terms. Before the main match of the 2. Bundesliga on Saturday, the roles in the north are reversed: here the leader of the fjord league, there the club with a great past and renewed fear of promotion in the present. The match starts at 8:30 p.m. on the live ticker.

Hamburger SV would like to be where Holstein Kiel is, at least in sporting terms. Before the main match of the 2. Bundesliga on Saturday (8:30 p.m. / Sky and Sport1), the roles are reversed in the north: here the leader of the fjord league, there the club with a great past and the renewed fear of the promotion to the Bundesliga. Present.

The fact that KSV is considered the favorite in the northern duel is seen in Kiel as a recognition of the work done so far this season. But no one wants to accept the role of favorite. It's much better to talk in advance.

“Basically I say that if a team goes to HSV's stadium, then HSV is the favorite. It doesn't matter what match,” said new sporting director Carsten Wehlmann. In the table the signs are different. However, HSV is the winner. In 99 percent of these games we are not afraid of it, we are looking forward to the game.” Midfielder Finn Porath, one of three ex-HSVers in the Holstein squad alongside Lewis Holtby and Fiete Arp, talks about a “highlight” to play there, it doesn't matter if we are first or twelfth.
