Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
HSV will be aiming to extend their winning run to four games when they take on Elversberg on Matchday 6. Die Rothosen are leading the chase for automatic promotion, but they need to keep on winning if they are to return to Bundesliga, where they undisputedly belong. Even though both Mario Vuskovic and Guilherme Ramos are banned for the match, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders, who were producing excellent displays before the international break.
The newcomers, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Osnabruck and they managed to get one thanks to Wahidullah Faghir’s goal. The talented Danish forward is pushing for a start, while all Kevin Koffi, Robin Fellhauer, and Patryk Dragon remain in the recovery room. Anyhow, away win should be considered as HSV are a more experienced side than Elversberg.
