Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
HSV will be aiming to secure automatic Bundesliga promotion when they take on Sandhausen on the last day of the season. Die Rothosen proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Regensburg and Greuther Furth and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. All Bakery Jatta, Ludovit Reis, and Mario Vuskovic are banned for the match, while Xavier Amaechi, Noah Katterbach, and Andras Nemth should miss out with injuries.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table. Considering that Sandhausen failed to secure the 2. Bundesliga survival, we are tempted to put our money on HSV. As for the home team, all Alexander Esswein, Ahmed Kutucu, and Erik Zenga are banned for the game. Defender Raphael Framberger has yet to overcome from a knock. In the first half of the season HSV outplayed Sandhausen 4-2.
