Fallen German giants Hamburg could be relegated from the Bundesliga's top flight for the first time in their history Saturday.Lying second from bottom after taking just 28 points from 33 games, the club must beat Borussia Moenchengladbach at home on the final day of the season and hope Wolfsburg, who are one place and two points above them, lose at home to already-relegated Cologne.The goal is to finish 16th, which would mean for the third time in five years Hamburg would face the ordeal of a relegation playoff, this time against Holstein Kiel, who finished third in Germany's second tier.Keegan thrived in the bustling northern German port and was voted European player of the year in both 1978 and 1979 .He scored 17 goals as Hamburg won the Bundesliga title for the first time in 1978-1979 .Hamburg also won the German title in the 1981-1982 and 1982-1983 seasons.Even legendary West Germany striker Uwe Seeler, an eternal optimist who scored 404 goals in 476 games for Hamburg, is considering what most fans dread.
