Hamburg (dpa / lno) - Hamburger SV wants to regain the lead in the 2nd Bundesliga.
For this, the Hanseatic League needs a victory over VfL Osnabrück.
Tonight's encounter in the Volksparkstadion will be particularly emotional for coach Daniel Thioune.
The long-time professional and trainer at VfL meets his former professionals and companions.
“This is something very special,” said the 46-year-old.
"I was part of the success."
But the coach wants “less Daniel Thioune” and instead “more HSV against Osnabrück” in preliminary reports and social media.
"We want to win a football game and we will do everything for it," he said.
In the preseason he had a good laugh with VfL.
2: 1 in Osnabrück, 1: 1 in Hamburg.
Osnabrück are almost as strong away from home as HSV at home this season.
Lower Saxony took 15 points and HSV 16.
In the table, both teams are separated by eight points.
