Tim Walter sees the second division Hamburger SV in the DFB pokal half-finals against Bundesligist SC Freiburg in the role of the promising outsider.
“The opponent plays a league higher and is on the way to the Champions League, we are nominally the challenger,” said the coach of HSV to the home game on Tuesday (20:45 / ARD and SKY) against the Breisgau-elf.
“We have a buck on this beautiful game and an outstanding platform with a sold-out house. It’s hard for every opponent to pass 57,000 fans,” said Walter.
The approach is always the same for his team: “We want to win every game,” said Walter, who can make the biggest success of the HSV’s biggest success of HSV in 1987 in Berlin.
The question of whether he would rather move into the first league with the HSV or DFB Cup winners would become the 46-year-old evasive: he wool “always everything,” said Walter. “Now it’s only about winning this game to keep at least one hand at the pot.”
Personnel can win almost out of full. In addition to the long-term injured Tim Leibold, only Maximilian tube is missing because of a muscle fabric. The midfielder Ludovit Rice locked at the General Sort on Saturday in the 2nd league against Karlsruher SC (3: 0) is again an option for the starting eleven.
