• HSV and Augsburg have only met five times in the league before. Hamburg have won once, while FCA have celebrated three victories (1 draw). HSV have failed to score in three of the last four encounters.
  • The game against HSV will be FC Augsburg’s 100th in the Bundesliga. They have recorded 28 wins, 30 draws and 41 defeats from their 99 matches so far.
  • Hamburg have lost each of their last seven away matches, with their last point on the road coming at the end of November after a 1-1 draw in Wolfsburg.
  • HSV have lost three of their last four matches and have collected just four points from their last six games (W1, D1, L4) – only Nürnberg (3) and Hertha (2) have collected fewer.
  • If Hamburg lose in Augsburg and Stuttgart win in Hannover, guaranteed safety would no longer be mathematically possible for HSV. They didn’t collect any points from the three corresponding fixtures prior to the winter break.
  • FC Augsburg have only won one of their last seven games – a 1-0 victory over FC Bayern München. Otherwise they have recorded two draws and four defeats.
  • Augsburg have only scored one goal in their last four games – in the 1-0 win over Bayern. FCA failed to have a single shot on target in the match against Hertha, the third time that has happened this season – more often than any other team.
  • Only Hoffenheim (66) have conceded more goals than HSV (65). Never before in their Bundesliga history have Hamburg conceded as many goals after 31 games.
  • Mirko Slomka has lost each of his last 13 away games – only Uli Maslo (14, 1980-81) and Udo Klug (21, between 1982 and 1986) have suffered more consecutive away defeats in Bundesliga history.
  • Rene Adler made a mistake that led to a goal in the match against Wolfsburg, the sixth time he has done so this season. Since Opta started collecting this statistic in 2007/08, no other player has made more than five mistakes that have led to goals.
  • Andre Hahn was at HSV from 2008-10, but only played for the reserves. The then 17-year-old moved to Hamburg from FC Bremerhaven.
