Probably the strong emotions will be accompanied by a meeting of the round 34 Bundesliga between FSV Mainz 05 and Hamburger SV . Guests will fight in Mainz for the preservation of the sixteenth , investment promotion , and thus to avoid the first ever relegation. Team , in turn, intend to defend seventh position , which guarantees start in European competition .
The strength of Mainz is not the game away , but in front of their own fans . On their " trash " players FSV suffered three wins in a row , defeating in succession Augsburg, Bremen and Nuremberg . Back on the European scene is so very close. - We can crown a great season - said at the pre-match conference Tuchel .
A talented coach on Saturday will most likely not be able to designate Niko Bungert game and Eric - Maxim Choupo - Motinga . First struggling with thigh injury and the other suffering from the infection. Returned to training while Nicolai Müller , who, however, is not an option for the starting eleven .
From the first minute in the colors of Hamburg should be for it to play Pierre- Michel Lasogga , who is recovering from injury . Ready is also Johan Djourou , while the game is questionable Dennis Diekmeier , Lasse Sobiech and Jacques Zoua'y . In the frame of HSV will not find Marcell Jansen , Zhi Gin Lam , Slobodan Rajković and Maximillian Beister .
Coach Mirko Slomka will therefore have a bit more leeway than in a meeting with Bayern Munich , which ended up crushing defeat 1:4, although not the worst attitude in the first half . It was the fourth consecutive game loser HSV , which remain in the Bundesliga Hanseaten can only through the playoffs . To play them , however , must maintain a one-point advantage over FC Nürnberg and two-point over Eintracht Braunschweig .

Of the four previous meetings in the FSV Hamburg won two and twice shared the points. Autumn start both teams ended happily turn to Nullfünfer who were deported from the Imtech Arena - 3-2 win . Total of 15 games played won four players FSV , six HSV and five times fell tie.
