Holstein Kiel snatched the victory that was believed to be certain from Hamburger SV at the last second. In stoppage time the “storks” made up for the deficit. The ex-Bundesliga club still remains in first place.
Hamburger SV only missed the sixth win in the seventh game of the season by seconds. At Holstein Kiel, the Rothosen conceded the 1-1 equalizer in stoppage time.
Thanks to a header from Moritz Heyer, the guests took the lead shortly before the break. That lasted until the first minute of stoppage time. Then Kiel’s Joker Mees snatched the Hamburgers from the victory they believed to be certain. The former Bundesliga club from the Hanseatic city remains undefeated in first place.
A good week after the 2-2 in the derby against FC St. Pauli, HSV showed that the setback has apparently left its mark – especially on the offensive there was a problem.

The guests had more of the game, but Kiel skillfully narrowed the space and prevented the decisive passes in the top. In addition, the storks were always waiting to quickly combine forward via key player Jae-sung Lee. Fin Bartels (26th) then had the first good chance of the game for the home side.
Otherwise the game went on for a long time without any real highlights. No wonder that HSV needed a standard situation for the lead shortly before the break. After a corner from Sonny Kittel, Jeremy Dudziak crossed again and Heyer had no trouble nodding off to his first HSV goal – with the first real opportunity for the red pants.
Kiel remains Hamburg’s feared opponent
Despite the goal, Kiel then acted much more courageously and increased the pace with Lee, the Hamburgers were not always safe. Terodde and Co. could hardly provide relief. Kiel ran more and more desperate – and was rewarded in stoppage time by Joker Mees.
Hamburg’s Toni Leistner said after the game on Sky: “We could have played one or the other counterattack better and just have to put the lid on.”
Coach Daniel Thioune’s team is now four points ahead of runner-up VfL Osnabrück and five points ahead of fourth place, which Holstein now occupies.
The “storks” remain the feared opponent of the HSV. Even in the fifth meeting, there was no victory against their northern rivals.
