Hamburg trainer Armin Veh could not believe that his side had gone down 3-1 at home to Wolfsburg in a game his side dominated.
"It is a terribly bitter feeling to lose such a game. We clearly dominated the match and had so many chances to score," Veh said after the final whistle.
"I have seen an HSV team, who combined well in their play and played with their hearts. Unfortunately we could not take our many chances. Today the best team lost."
Hamburg travel to the Weserstadion this Saturday to face Werder Bremen. Die Rothosen are currently in sixth spot with eight points from five games.
