The Hanseatic side will play the Bundesliga-2 for the first time in its history.
Hamburg has beaten Gladbach, although the game was abruptly ended with police intervention by throwing objects from one of the funds. A sterile triumph for the triumph of Wolfsburg that condemns the HSV to the Bundesliga-2 for the first time in its history since the German tournament was founded in 1963. The watch that shines in the Imtech Arena with the club’s time in the highest category -measured in years, days, hours, minutes and seconds- will stop after this meeting.
The Hamburg team needed to win and Wolfsburg lost to have entered the dreaded ‘play-off’ that would have been the only way of salvation for a European champion team that had long flirted with a decline that has finally occurred this afternoon .
Not in vain, the HSV is known as the ‘dinosaur’, since it has been playing the Bundesliga since the beginning of the competition. It is the institution that accumulates more courses in First in Germany, ahead of Werder Bremen and even Bayern, third in contention in this classification of clubs with more time in the elite of Germanic football and that will not count on Hamburg.
