Dynamo doesn’t budge: St. Pauli concedes a mighty rise damper

Dynamo doesn’t move
St. Pauli conceded a powerful rise damper

FC St. Pauli is in the tight fight for promotion in the 2nd Bundesliga, but the Hamburgers are annoyed by SV Sandhausen late in the game. So they don’t even temporarily regain the lead in the table. For Dynamo Dresden, the relegation against the 3rd division is becoming more and more likely.

Hanover 96 – Fortuna Dusseldorf 0-0

Fortuna Düsseldorf has continued to build on its winning streak in the 2nd Bundesliga, but was unable to win against an opponent who was outnumbered. The Rhinelanders had to settle for a clean sheet in the early decimated Hannover 96 team.

In front of 17,200 fans, Hannover played outnumbered from the 16th minute after Niklas Hult saw Rouwen Hennings red for an emergency brake. Fortuna has not lost in nine games.

Due to the draw, Düsseldorf maintains its lead over Hanover (36) with 37 points. 96 had recently won 3-1 at Erzgebirge Aue after four games without a win in a row. After the red card, Hannover tried to disrupt the guests’ flow of play and stop their attacking efforts. This worked very well over a long distance. The Fortunes have been waiting for an away win since December (3-1 at Darmstadt 98).

SV Sandhausen – FC St. Pauli 1: 1 (0: 1)

FC St. Pauli missed the return to the top of the table after two weeks. Hamburg, who gave up pole position at the beginning of April, had to settle for a 1-1 (1-0) win at SV Sandhausen and are currently second on 53 points behind leaders Schalke 04, who have the same number of points.

On Sunday (1.30 p.m.) the Royal Blues could pull three points clear with a win at Darmstadt 98 and Werder Bremen with a win against 1. FC Nürnberg. With 35 points, Sandhausen has a six-point lead over the relegation zone.

Guido Burgstaller scored for the guests with a penalty kick (39th). It was the 18th goal of the season for the Austrian, who had previously failed to score in five games. Janik Bachmann (90+1) equalized for the hosts.

The Hamburgers dominated the game from the start, but they didn’t create any clear chances to score. Only a penalty after video evidence brought St. Pauli the lead. Burgstaller went down in a duel with Dario Dumic in the penalty area, referee Felix Brych initially allowed play to continue.

Shortly after the restart, Marcel Hartel had a great chance to make it 2-0 (49th) after a brilliant pass from Burgstaller, but the midfielder was denied by Sandhausen goalkeeper Patrick Drewes, who quickly saved with his foot.

Dynamo Dresden – Holstein Kiel 0-0

Dynamo Dresden missed a landmark threesome in the relegation battle. The Saxons couldn’t get past 0-0 against Holstein Kiel. With 29 points, the eight-time East German champion still occupies relegation place 16, the gap to SV Sandhausen in 15th position is six points.

However, for the Storks, whose coach Marcel Rapp completed his 43rd year, an impressive series against Dynamo came to an end. The North Germans had previously won all seven duels. The Dresdeners had only scored two goals, but had to accept 18 hits.

Most recently, Kiel had won 1-0 against Bundesliga founding member Hamburger SV. However, Rapp had to make five changes to his starting lineup compared to the HSV match. The visitors had their first opportunity to take the lead in the first minute. However, Kwasi Wriedt only hit the crossbar of the Dresden goal with a flick. In the 31st minute, Kiel’s Fabian Reese failed from a tight angle to goalkeeper Kevin Broll.

It was not until the 36th minute that the home side had their first chance. Johannes van den Berg cleared Michael Sollbauer’s shot on the line. In return, Lewis Holtby failed to Broll.
