Hahn: We won’t underestimate HSV

Borussia Mönchengladbach forward Andre Hahn says his side will approach Saturday's Bundesliga encounter against Hamburger SV like any other.
 
Mönchengladbach have experienced mixed results this season, with their home form proving far superior to their away record in the league. Their last home league loss came in January, when they were defeated 3-1 by Borussia Dortmund.
 
However, despite their impressive home record and Hamburg's poor recent form, Hahn insists his side won't rest on their laurels.
 
"We're going into this game like we do any other," he told the Bundesliga's official website.
 
"That means we won't underestimate HSV any more than we did SV Werder Bremen a few weeks ago, and they were in a tough situation themselves then."
 
"After six match days, the table can't tell you all that much about the tactical quality of a team. But it is clear Hamburg are under pressure here – they need to get a result. But we're playing in Borussia-Park, and it's no secret we're a real powerhouse at home," he added.
 
Hamburg languish in last place in the league standings, having collected only one point from six matches, and Hahn believes that the new man at the Hamburg helm could bring about a change in their fortunes.
 
"Of course we're aware of it and we all know from experience that a coaching change gives players a chance to prove themselves and show what they have to offer. It's a motivating factor, it fires players up," he added.
 
"But for us that kind of news is a side issue, because it's never going to matter to us that much how our opponent wants to play.
 
"It's always our goal to play our game, and play attractive football. And we have a bit to put right after losing 4-0 at FC Schalke 04."
