Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Hamburger SV will look to climb to top position in the standings when they take on Karlsruher on Matchday 24. Die Rothosen faced no difficulties in a 3-0 win over Nurnberg, but they need to keep on winning if they are to secure automatic promotion. Key attacker Robert Glatzel should continue to lead the line for the visitors despite failing to find the net in the last league match, while defender Mario Vuskovic is banned for the match. All Sebastian Schonlau, Xavier Amaechi, Tom Mickel, and Elijah Krahn are out of contention with injuries.
The hosts, on the other hand, are eyeing their fifth consecutive league win. Karlsruher look unstoppable at the moment, and given their solid defence, we are positive that they will hold HSV to a draw in Sunday’s showdown. The home team’s injury list includes the likes of Tim Breithaupt, Stefano Marino, Kyoung-Rok Choi, and Efe-Kaan Sihlaroglu.
