Status: 06/01/2023 11:55 p.m

HSV can probably write off the promotion to the Bundesliga. The second division soccer team went down 0:3 (0:1) in the relegation first leg at VfB Stuttgart – and that was fully deserved. In this condition, an HSV comeback in the second leg on Monday in the Volksparkstadion is hard to imagine.

“We deservedly lost today and the result was the best,” said midfielder Jonas Meffert after the final whistle, speaking of a “class difference”. Coach Tim Walter was annoyed that HSV was “not on the ball. So you don’t have a chance here.” The football teacher complained about too many “slight mistakes” and poorly defended standards.

His team delivered in the first duel with the Bundesliga-16. a remarkably feeble performance. Did the drama of the last second division match day with the so bitterly missed direct promotion still play a role? Walter vehemently contradicted this assumption. The bottom line was that HSV was inferior to Stuttgart in all respects.

Stuttgart leads after 44 seconds

44 seconds had been played in the VfB stadium when the mood of the 5,000 or so HSV fans who had traveled with them was dampened. After a corner, Konstantinos Mavropanos headed the 1-0 for the hosts almost unchallenged. An early shock from which the North Germans never recovered. The Stuttgart team should have made everything clear at the break.

Serhou Guirassy alone should have scored two more goals for the Bundesliga side. In the 23rd minute, the Frenchman was free after a nice pass from Josha Vagnoman, but Heuer Fernandes saved the weak finish. Shortly thereafter, Guirassy grabbed the ball when Ludovit Reis had brought Enzo Millot down on the penalty area line and referee Tobias Welz awarded a penalty. The weak, medium-high shot was again a grateful prey for Heuer Fernandes (27th).

But he couldn’t prevent the complete knockout after the break either. First, the former Hamburg Vagnoman scored to make it 2-0 (51st), before Guirassy increased the lead to 3-0 (54th).

Suhonen sees red

In the 58th minute, Robert Glatzel gave the guests an offensive sign of life with a chance to head the ball, but VfB goalkeeper Florian Müller was on his toes. A wake-up call for HSV? No, Anssi Suhonen made the used evening of the Hanseatic League perfect. Having just come on as a substitute, the Finn hit Vagnoman with his open sole on the thigh and saw the red card (69th).

Nothing was going well for HSV. Sonny Kittel’s shot would have found its way into the Stuttgart goal, but Waldemar Anton blocked just before the line (77′). On the other hand, Hamburg were lucky that Mavropanos didn’t make it 4-0 in added time.

What else is in the second leg on Monday night? HSV doesn’t want to give up just yet. “We saw last weekend that nothing is impossible in football,” said Jonas Meffert. “There are sometimes eleven minutes of added time.” In exactly this, 1. FC Heidenheim scored two more goals in Regensburg and sent HSV into the relegation.
