On Monday evening, HSV welcomed Hertha Berlin in the second leg at Volkspark. After winning 1-0 in the first leg in Berlin, access to the Bundesliga is within reach of Hamburg.

Jonas Meffert and landing is not a success story yet. The 27-year-old has twice missed promotion to the Bundesliga despite his good starting positions. In 2015 Miffert lost the second leg with Karlsruhe after a 1-1 draw with HSV 1-2 after extra time, last year 1-0 in Cologne followed by a bitter 5-1 defeat to Holstein Kiel.

Miffert is now back in the lead with HSV in relegation, but the midfielder doesn’t want to hear about déjà vu ahead of Monday night’s second leg (8.30pm, at NDR Livecenter): “You can’t compare that at all. That was with Kiel at the time 1 -0 in Cologne is happy. FC had a lot of good chances. It’s a different situation this time.”

In fact: After a very strong final race in the second division with five straight wins, HSV made up a seven-point deficit and took third place in the table, which was considered barely possible at the start of April. On the other hand, Hertha seemed to have already saved and relegated to the relegation position on the last day of the Bundesliga match. In an interview with NDR, former HSV goalkeeper Richard Jules said: “The trend is your friend. I saw in the first leg that Hertha had a lot to lose and that he was a burden to the players. They seemed very paralyzed. Me.”

“I hope Felix Magath is successful, but not against HSV.”

Hertha coach Felix Magath does not agree and sees the psychological situation in favor of the Berlin players: “At the moment we are off the field and we can only win. Like the European Cup: “There are many examples in football to compensate for the deficit after the first match.”

HSV coach Walter: ‘We are convinced of ourselves’

Magath’s pressure on HSV was gladly accepted by his colleague. “The pressure is a privilege. We work to survive in situations like this,” HSV coach Tim Walter said on Sunday. His team has felt “weeks of finals” and is therefore self-confident and optimistic: “Everyone knows that we are totally focused on the game and we are incredibly excited. I have seen what the boys can do. We are brave and convinced of us.”

“Everyone at the club is very lively and we will take that to the pitch tomorrow.”

However, the 46-year-old cautioned against being too euphoric: “There’s no time to think ‘what if?'” “We are only halfway there and we will continue to work on Monday.” After going it was important to “rejuvenate and restore strength”. Walter is also counting on the support of fans at the completely out of stock Volksparkstadion: “We managed to get everyone involved. Now we want to make the fans and the city happy.”

It’s possible that Jatta, Meffert and Voskovitch are working

Ailing trio Bakari Jatta, Jonas Meffert and Mario Voskovic hold Walter in cotton wool: “We control everything individually so we can compete with the best possible team.” Spectators should not be wary of HSV’s tactical team: “Absolutely not! Anyone who knows us and has seen our season knows we’re trying to play football, it doesn’t matter against whom. We want to play as bravely as a coach. He doesn’t wait for us,” said Miffert, hoping for relegation to become a relegation. The second success story of him on the third attempt.
