Team News: Hamburg
Hamburg boss Daniel Thioune has to currently contend with reduced team options. David Kinsombi (Calf Problems), Rick van Drongelen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Sonny Kittel (Ill) won’t be making appearances.
In our opinion, Greuther Furth might need a bit of good fortune to breach the defence of this Hamburg outfit who we think might end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’re therefore predicting a very even match with a 0-1 winning score for Hamburg when all is said and done.
Should be a close one.
