Sandhausen (dpa / lsw) - The SV Sandhausen draws hope again in the relegation battle of the 2nd Bundesliga.
In the first game after two weeks of quarantine, the Kurpfälzer beat Hamburger SV 2-1 (0-0) on Thursday evening.
An own goal by Stephan Ambrosius (46th minute) initiated the hugely important victory for SVS, attacker Daniel Keita-Ruel (52nd) followed up.
The subsequent goal by Manuel Wintzheimer (76th) was no longer enough for HSV.
Due to the surprising success, the team of interim coaches Gerhard Kleppinger and Stefan Kulovits advanced to the relegation place.
Against a long time desolate HSV, the sand houses were the better team for long stretches.
In the first round, Keita-Ruel (5th), Kevin Behrens (18th) or Julius Biada (44th) could have put the hosts in the lead.
On the other hand, almost nothing came from the hamburgers.
Immediately after the break, the SVS finally took the lead through Ambrosius, who headed a Biada cross into his own goal.
A few minutes later, Keita-Ruel added a diving header to a cross from Nikolas Nartey.
It was only in the final phase that HSV turned up.
The goal of Wintzheimer on Terodde template came too late.
