Our match prediction:
Hamburger play host to Ingolstadt at the start of the new Bundesliga campaign. Die Rothosen finished the last season in tenth place in the standings, meaning that made a great progress in the 2015/2016 season. Hamburger recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Zwickau in Monday’s German Cup clash and it has to be noted that new signing Alen Halilovic scored the winner for the Bundesliga outfit. Serbian winger Filip Kostic made his Hamburger debut against Zwickau and fans certainly have faith in the former Stuttgart ace. Die Rothosen face Ingolstadt at their Volksparkstadion in the opening match of the season and we predict that the hosts, who reinforced the squad in the summer transfer window, are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. Ingolstadt are on a four-game losing run in Bundesliga, speaking of away games, and they are unlikely to spoil Hamburg’s party at Volksparkstadion.
