Wood could return to Hamburg lineup this weekend

Hamburger SV v FC Ingolstadt 04 - Bundesliga
After serving his three-match suspension for violent conduct, Bobby Wood has featured only sparingly for Hamburg. That could change this weekend.

While speaking of potential replacements for injured midfielder Lewis Holtby, Hamburg manager Markus Gisdol praised Wood’s recent efforts in training, and tabbed the U.S. Men’s National Team forward as a potential replacement.

“Bobby Wood, Luca Waldschmidt and Aaron Hunt are candidates to replace Lewis Holtby,” Gisdol said at a press conference ahead of the match against Mainz. “They have all trained well. It will be a difficult decision.”

Wood has featured only twice as a substitute since his return from his October red card suspension, but has been angling for a return in recent training sessions. His absence hasn’t hurt Hamburg, however, as the team has won two and drawn two matches in his absence as they turn their early season struggles around.


  1. Seems like a no brainer Wood has 4 goals in all competitions this season, Waldeschmidt has 1 and Hunt has 0. Scoring goals is kind of the object of the game.
