Assan Ceesay’s Osnabrück could have won the game in the last 15th minute as they countered the home team but squandered their chances. It was end to end stuff for the last 5 minutes of the game but but the expected Hamburg onslaught never materialised. Given that they need a win , Hamburger performance after the break was very poor and disappointing .
