• Frankfurt haven’t lost any of their last three Bundesliga games against Hamburg (W2 D1). The only other time Eintracht have had a longer unbeaten streak against HSV was towards the end of the 1960s (6 games).
  • HSV don’t just lead the head-to-head record ahead of the 90th Bundesliga meeting between the two sides (W41 D21 L27), but they have also celebrated more home wins against Frankfurt than they have against any other current Bundesliga side (30).
  • Never before have Hamburger SV had a lower points-tally (19) or conceded as many goals (52) after 23 Bundesliga games. Their tally of 52 goals conceded also means they have the leakiest defence in the Bundesliga.
  • HSV have occupied one of the bottom three spots in the table for each of the last six matchdays – that has only happened to them once before during the second half of the season: Hamburg spent seven matchdays (18-24) in the bottom three in 1972/73, but ended the campaign in 14th.
  • Hamburg have lost eight of their last nine Bundesliga matches (one win), meaning they have collected only three of the last 27 possible points.
  • Frankfurt have lost five of their last six Bundesliga away games (W1). Their last two top-flight away trips to Munich and Dortmund have resulted in no points and a 0:9 goal record.
  • So far in the second half of the season, only Bremen – who HSV recently lost 1-0 to – have scored fewer goals than Hamburg (five, the same as Gladbach), who have also failed to score in five of their last seven competitive matches.
  • Hamburg have already gone behind in 18 matches, a league-high together with Braunschweig. HSV have only trailed in 17 games in the whole of last season.
  • Armin Veh won’t be extending his contract that expires in the summer. He could celebrate his 100th win as a Bundesliga manager in the match against HSV, the club he managed in 2010/11 before joining Frankfurt.
