Nurnberg opened up the season in the best possible way, as the team comes from a narrow 1:0 victory away to Dynamo Dresden last weekend.
It wasn’t an easy game for them, on the contrary, but the side managed to exploit their own chances despite being very passive almost during the whole match.
The only goal was scored in the 53rd minute via Dovedan, in not that interesting second halftime, while Dresden missed some decent chances in the first halftime to take the lead first.
Midfielder Fuchs remains injured, as well as offensive players Misidjan, Zrelak, Schleusener and Lohkemper, all without playing in the new season.
After a very disappointing previous season as players of Hamburger SV failed to get back into the Bundesliga in quite ugly fashion, the team only managed to take a point in the season-opening game against Darmstadt at home in a 1:1 game.
They had more of the ball possession and much more of the chances created, but even so, could be said that they were lucky to level up in the eight-minute of added time and via penalty kick taken by Hunt.
They had plenty of chances actually, but efficiency is something that it’s all about and they need to improve it very soon.
The guests continue to miss central defenders Letschert (nelwy signed) and Ewerton.
No doubt that Hamburger SV is coming for a victory here and well, they will surely create a lot of chances. Nurnberg is having similar ambitions as HSV this season and should be no pushover in this one after a good start in Dresden.
The hosts have shown that they don’t need many chances in order to score even though they miss a couple of important offensive players.
