Cup | HSV cheers after the 911 thriller in Nuremberg


Second division soccer club Hamburger SV has reached the round of 16 in the DFB Cup after a penalty crime thriller. In the second-round duel between the old masters at league rivals 1. FC Nürnberg, the Hanseatic team won 4-2 on penalties after the match after regular playing time and extra time had been 1-1 (1-1, 1-0).

The hosts went after misses by Lino Tempelmann and Asgar Sörensen for the first time after a competitive game in the current season as a loser. Jonas David converted Hamburg’s decisive penalty.

David had already brought HSV into the lead (45th). Joker Taylan Duman (59th) forced extra time eight minutes after being substituted on by equalizing.

The prestige duel between the two Bundesliga contenders in the Max Morlock Stadium in Nuremberg, one month after the two teams went 2-2 in the Hamburg league, barely met expectations for long stretches. The “club”, in which in the cup compared to the 4-0 league victory last Saturday against 1. FC Heidenheim only substitute goalkeeper Carl Klaus moved back into the starting line-up for regular goalkeeper Christian Mathenia, initially acted with too little speed and was able to do so Hardly embarrass HSV.

The North Germans, whose coach Tim Walther had changed his team to two positions compared to last Friday’s 2-1 win at SC Paderborn, at least made an effort to gain an offensive swing. Up to David’s opening goal with a header after a corner kick, however, two long-range shots were the only noteworthy approaches of the guests.

After the break, the encounter began with a moment of shock. A few seconds after the restart, Nuremberg midfielder Tom Krauss and his Hamburg opponent Miro Muheim clashed with their heads in an aerial duel. Krauss seemed at least temporarily unconscious and had to be taken from the place on a stretcher.

When the exchange became necessary, FCN coach Robert Klauß proved a lucky hand with Duman’s substitution. Just eight minutes later, the 24-year-old tied for a draw with a direct pick-up.

Towards the end of regular time, the hoped-for exchange of blows developed, without a team initially succeeding in the lucky punch. In extra time, the hosts put more and more pressure on and embarrassed Hamburg several times, but could not use their superiority for the decisive goal.
