Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Hamburger will be aiming to climb to automatic promotion places when they take on Magdeburg in the 2. Bundesliga round 12. Die Rothosen are eager to keep their 100% record at home intact and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Magdeburg. Even though the likes of Ludovit Reis, Anssi Suhonen, Sebastian Schonlau, and Noah Katterbach remain in the treatment room, we are tempted to put our money on the home side.
The visitors, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four league matches. Considering that HSV have turned their Volksparkstadion into a real fortress, we do not believe that the underdogs are capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s clash. All Luca Castaignos, Eldin Dzogovic, Julian Pollersbeck, Jean Hugonet, and Mo El Hankouri are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the away team.
