Hamburger SV lost its first highly emotional home game after the death of Uwe Seeler. Due to a goal in added time, the big favorite for promotion in the 2nd Bundesliga lost to FC Hansa Rostock 0-1 (0-0) on Sunday. Kevin Schumacher only decided this northern duel shortly before the end (90. 4). The Rostock victory was still deserved.
In front of 54,500 spectators in the Volksparkstadion, HSV wore special jerseys with the inscription “Uns Uwe” in honor of the club legend who passed away on Thursday. Before kick-off, both teams laid a wreath in the center circle of the field.
From a purely sporting point of view, the Hamburgers had similar problems on Sunday as they did with their flattering opening win in Braunschweig (2-0). The HSV game again lacked the pace. The strong, compact and courageous Rostockers missed several clear chances even before the late 1-0. HSV goalkeeper Daniel Heuer Fernandes had to save against Sweden’s Svante Ingelsson in the 65th minute and against Dennis Dressel in the 81st minute.
