Bundesliga handball players HSV Hamburg suffered their eighth defeat of the season. Undefeated leaders SC Magdeburg suffered a 26:34 (13:17) defeat in front of 3,400 spectators on Thursday. On coach Torsten Jansen’s 45th birthday, Casper Mortensen was the Hanseatic League’s top scorer with six goals. Michael Damgaard succeeded ten times for the SCM.
After Magdeburg’s 8: 4 lead, HSVH relied on the seventh outfielder. Thanks to this measure and the fine saves of goalkeeper Johannes Bitter, the guests returned. Each time Hamburg managed to force SCM into attacking position, the favorite had a hard time. But Magdeburg’s speed game and Damgaard’s individual actions only worked better.
As the game time increased, the class difference became more and more evident. Magdeburg international Philipp Weber gave the hosts a ten-goal lead with 30:20 (49th). At the end of the year, the Hamburgers will receive the Bergische HC on Monday (7:05 p.m. / Sky). According to the latest corona containment order of the city of Hamburg, up to 2500 fans are allowed in the sports hall.

The Füchse Berlin, however, missed second place on the table. In front of 2,500 spectators in the Max-Schmeling-Halle, the Berliners did not exceed the time of 26:26 (15:13) against HBW Balingen-Weilstetten. The Foxes remain fourth in the table. Berlin’s top scorers were Lasse Andersson and Milos Vujovic with six goals each.
Before the game, the Füchse announced that the contract with Danish long distance player Andersson had been extended until 2025. Coach Jaron Siewert had to do without Fabian Wiede for a short time due to muscle problems. The match was very balanced at the beginning and no team could break away.
The foxes struggled against the strong physical protection of Balingen. But access is also lacking in defense and the guests came on simple goals from the back room. It was only towards the end of the first half that the Füchse were able to take a three-goal lead (15:12).
After the break, the hosts got more won balls, but allowed too many free throws on offense. The Bertliners couldn’t get away any longer, Balingen stayed with them. Ten seconds from the end, the guests equalized again after a long time. Andersson awarded the last free throw after time expired.
