EffZeh was relegated from Bundesliga after last season and they are now preparing for the 2nd part of the season to take place in “Zweite”.
They still have a great team with some very interesting players and to then be sitting 3rd is a bit behind the goal, but todays game against 2nd place St. Pauli can change this. EffZeh also have a game in hand, and with points gained, they will be in a direct promotion position.
Recently the club had a great tour to Mallorca to prepare the 2nd part and they are of course positive under the coaching of Markus Anfang who joined the club in front of the new season.
EffZeh still have a lot of job to do, but with Jhon Cordoba up front, Timo Horn in goal, Jonas Hector in the back, they should be solid enough to win their way back to the top. Captain Matthias Lehmann is also a player to rate highly and one to credit.
Attacking midfielder Louis Schaub is one we would like to mention as well, with 9 assists he is leading that table this season. The Austrian international joined from Rapid Vienna in front of the season.
Another player who is doing great in the assist table is Dominic Drexler. The 28 year old is a player that previously played for lower level teams and also been playing in Danish football. He has previously played for Holstein Kiel and Greuther Furth among his former clubs.
Tonight St. Pauli will come visiting and hopefully Anfang will be able to bring in three points, pass his opponent in the table and work on that and be able to follow HSV back to the Bundesliga.
