Pauli takes over the heated Hamburg derby late

FC St. Pauli – Hamburger SV 3: 0 (0: 0)

Hamburger SV’s impressive winning streak came to an end in the heated city derby. Coach Tim Walter’s team lost 3-0 (0-0) to FC St. Pauli and, after six games without defeat, has to worry about leading the Bundesliga 2. Darmstadt 98 can already pass with a draw at Karlsruher SC on Saturday (1 p.m. / Sky). St. Pauli ended a run of seven games without a win with goals from Eric Smith (61st), Marcel Hartel (74th) and David Otto (89th). The hosts benefited from the early red card against HSV captain Sebastian Schonlau (28th, emergency brake).

Despite the unfavorable conditions before the match, Pauli trainer Timo Schultz didn’t want to know anything about the outsider role. “You can exclude a derby from the rest of the season,” said Schultz, promising “a lot of open-minded fighting.” His team got off to a brave start. Captain Jackson Irvine headed just over after a corner after just 47 seconds.

After that, however, the favorite took command in front of 29,205 spectators, who repeatedly ignited pyrotechnics at the Millerntor. Goalkeeper Nikola Vasilj was there for the first dangerous HSV finish by Ludovit Reis (11th). The hosts were deep, but were lurking for moments of change and had the great opportunity to take the lead: Etienne Amenyido failed, however, due to the strongly reacting Daniel Heuer Fernandes (15th).

After the respectable initial phase, the encounter became more and more hectic, with many fouls and quick turnovers characterizing the action. HSV found it difficult to bring their greater playing skills onto the pitch. After a long shot from Vasilj, the guests’ central defense was indisposed. Schonlau pushed the hurried Amenyido and saw the red card from referee Deniz Aytekin. Despite being outnumbered, HSV continued to play forward, but St. Pauli now had more space. Igor Matanovic almost put the outsider in the lead when he hit the post (44′).

St. Pauli increased the pressure at the beginning of the second half. Leart Paqarada missed twice (54th, 60th). Smith then headed in from a corner kick. The match became even more heated, with a pack formation in the 68th minute even both goalkeepers were involved. Hartel then made the decision with his third goal of the season, Otto added one more.

Before the match, there had been riots outside the stadium. The police reported some detentions, the hosts complained that the operation was “proportionate” and called for “clarification”. On a video, a fan lying on the ground is hit several times by a police officer, including with his elbow on the head. According to the neighborhood club, several people were injured. Twitter users accused police violence.

SpVgg Greuther Furth – Hansa Rostock 2: 2 (1: 0)

The SpVgg Greuther Fürth has at least temporarily left the relegation places, but left important points behind again. Coach Marc Schneider’s team only managed a 2:2 (1:0) against Hansa Rostock. The home team’s lead by Branimir Hrgota (20′) was equalized by Lukas Fröde (57′). After Ragnar Ache (60′) took the lead in Fürth again, Ryan Malone scored a penalty kick (90’+3) in added time for the guests to win the point.

With one point, the Franks, unbeaten in four games, climbed to 15th place. Rostock (14 points) remains in the middle of the table. In the first duel between the two teams since matchday 34 of the 2011/12 season, Fürth initially took the lead, but the guests had the first chances. Anderson Lucoqui failed in front of 10,516 spectators with his header at Greuther keeper Andreas Linde (10th), Lukas Hinterseer headed over the goal a little later.

In the middle of the good phase of the Rostock team, the surprising 1:0 fell – thanks to the captain. Hrgota took advantage of an unsuccessful attempt to clear by Damian Roßbach and hit the lead with a hard left-footed shot. Hrgota had another first-class chance with a shot at the crossbar (36′) in the first half, which was characterized by great hardship, injuries and numerous stoppages. Physically it stayed after the break. Fröde used a tussle in the Fürth penalty area to equalize with a header, only three minutes later Ache also scored with a header. Two minutes later, the home side were decimated, John Verhoek received a yellow-red card from referee Nicolas Winter (Hagenbach). Shortly before the final whistle, Max Christiansen fouled Svante Ingelsson, Malone converted ice cold.
