HARD-FOUGHT 2-2 DRAW IN THE DERBY AT HSV
The Boys in Brown secured a 2-2 draw against Hamburger SV in the first derby of the 2020/21 season at the Volksparkstadion on Friday evening. After Simon Terodde had given the home side an early lead, Rodrigo Zalazar and Simon Makienok turned the game around for the Boys in Brown. But the home side recovered to level the scores in front of just 1,000 spectators. Again it was Terodde on target to ensure the game ended all square.

Defending the derby double "with cool heads and fire in our hearts"
It's derby time again! The Boys in Brown go to HSV on Friday evening (18:30 CET) looking to defend the double they completed over their local rivals last term. Solely in terms of the table, the Boys in Brown are the outsiders going into the game against the league leaders, who have yet to drop a point, but past results count for nothing in a derby. After four raucous second-division encounters, only 1,000 fans tops will be inside the ground this time due to COVID-19 restrictions.
