Ham­burg con­tinue re­vival

New Straits Times - - Sport -

BER­LIN: US in­ter­na­tional Bobby Wood scored Ham­burg’s win­ner on Sun­day as their re­vival con­tin­ued with a 2-1 come­back vic­tory over Borus­sia Moenchenglad­bach.

Ham­burg, the Bun­desliga’s only ever-present side since its in­cep­tion in 1963-64, have picked up 13 points in their last six games un­der Markus Gis­dol.

How­ever, they re­main 16th — in the rel­e­ga­tion play-off place — hav­ing taken just two points from their first 10 matches in a dis­as­trous start to the sea­son.

Ear­lier, Aus­tria striker Guido Bergstaller net­ted twice as Schalke 04 snapped their six­match win­less streak with a 3-0 vic­tory at home to Augs­burg.

The vic­tory halted Schalke’s slide down the ta­ble. They climbed two places to 11th, two points ahead of Augs­burg.

It also re­lieved some of the pres­sure on Schalke coach Weinzierl, who came in­creas­ingly un­der fire fol­low­ing last week­end’s 4-2 league de­feat at Borus­sia Moenchenglad­bach.

At the top of the ta­ble, lead­ers Bay­ern Mu­nich ex­tended their lead to 10 points on Satur­day af­ter their 3-0 win over Ein­tra­cht Frank­furt on a red-let­ter day for the Bavar­ian giants as their near­est ri­vals lost.

Sec­ond-placed RB Leipzig crashed to a shock 1-0 de­feat at home to Wolfs­burg, while Borus­sia Dort­mund, who are third, suf­fered a Cham­pi­ons League hang­over in the cap­i­tal as they lost 2-1 at Hertha Ber­lin.
