A spot in the Bundesliga will be at stake when Hamburger SV and Hertha face each other at Volksparkstadion on Monday evening.
Die Rothosen produced a splendid display in the first leg, with Ludovit Reis putting icing on the cake with a winner after 57 minutes.
Hamburger are with one foot in the German top flight, but they can’t afford any complacency in the second leg.
There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but both Leibold and Suhonen remain in the recovery room.
The capital club, on the other hand, aim to overcome a one-goal deficit in the second leg.
Hertha, though, failed to create a descent goal-scoring opportunity in the Olympiastadion clash, and seeing that HSV are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the Bundesliga side will return to Berlin empty-handed.
Stevan Jovetic is pushing for a start, while Santiago Ascacibar is back from suspension.
