2’: HSV take the lead straightaway! Leibold plays a long pass that Heyer latches on to before crossing into the box, and Glatzel is unmarked and free to head home from close range. Not the start we‘d imagined!
13’: A fantastic atmosphere! The fans continue to support SVW despite or perhaps due to the early goal. Electric!
30’: Schmidt’s has a shot on goal from a free-kick, but his effort is blocked by the wall and nothing comes from the resulting corner.
31’: Red card! Christian Groß receives his second yellow card and has to leave the pitch. Groß made a lunging challenge to try and close down Heuer Fernándes but clatters into him, leaving the referee no choice but to send the midfielder for an early bath.
37’: Ducksch tussles with Schonlau in front of the HSV goal before Ducksch goes down claiming a foul, but the referee decides that no foul had been committed, and this decision is confirmed correct by a VAR check.
42’: 1-1! But no goal! A brilliant free-kick from Ducksch just outside the box nestles into the top left corner, cueing rapturous celebrations from the stands, but the goal is ruled out because Weiser illegally interfered with the HSV wall. Correct decision, but a tough one to take!
45+1’: Moritz Heyer sadly makes it 2-0 to HSV when he meets a Jatta cross at the far post and heads the ball in from close range, shooting in the opposite direction to which Zetterer is scrambling to get across.
45+4’: Half-time! The last quarter of an hour was a series of incredible events. Werder need to step it up in the Nordderby, there’s still something in it for us!
