Bruma is suffering from an inflammation in his knee, coach Thorsten Fink said, adding it would be decided late on Friday if he could play.

Hamburg, the only team in the Bundesliga never to have played in the second division since the top league's creation in 1963, have lost their first three games this season and are in 17th place just above Hoffenheim on goal difference.
