+++ “Boom Boom Bobby” +++
Center forward Robert Glatzel (42nd) scored the winning goal in the home game against 1. FC Heidenheim (1-0) and at the same time his third goal of the season. At the start of the second division in Braunschweig, the 28-year-old had already put together a brace. While “Bobby” hit the bull’s eye 22 times in the pre-season (second place in the league) and scored the all-important 1-0 nine times (league best), he’s also up to par this season and leads the list of goalscorers together with Darmstadt’s Felix Platte . Born in Munich, he was rewarded for his tireless activity against FCH and scored the most shots on goal of any player (six).
+++ Glatzel “Man of the Match” +++
Speaking of Glatzel: The center forward is yours Man of the Match for the home game against Heidenheim, prevailed with 33 percent of the votes, just ahead of Daniel Heuer Fernandes (27 percent) and Ransford Königsdörffer (nine).
+++ Strong defense +++
The Rothosen showed a strong defensive performance as a collective, in which goalkeeper Daniel Heuer Fernandes, who kept a clean sheet for the second time this season, especially the central defenders Sebastian Schonlau and Mario Vuskovic stood out. The latter made it into the kicker “eleven of the day” for the first time this season, winning 75 percent of his duels.
+++ Heyer: 100th second division game with a record +++
Moritz Heyer played against Heidenheim for the 100th time in a second division game, for the 67th time he wore the kit of the Rothosen – congratulations! Since moving from VfL Osnabrück to the Elbe, the 27-year-old has only failed to play in the second division four times (twice without a squad, twice suspended). “Mo” kept his side tight against Heidenheim and kept penetrating up front via the right wing: Five crosses meant a best value among all players.
+++ Active Muheim +++
Miro Muheim collected the most ball contacts against the Brenzstadt team – 81. One of these led to the 1-0 through Glatzel (42nd), when the Swiss served a cross from the left half field precisely to the goal-getter’s head. Keep it up Miro!
+++ Twice no training for HSV professionals +++
After the hard-fought but deserved 1-0 home win against Heidenheim, head coach Tim Walter rewarded his protégés with a training-free Sunday. Today’s Monday was planned as a day off in the training plan anyway, so the Rothosen can look forward to a little break to recharge their batteries.
