St. Pauli stops HSV outnumbered – Fürth awards win
HSV imagined things differently. In the 108th city derby, “St. Pauli” football club was hard with a score of 0:3. The leader of the table is in danger.
HSV coach Tim Walter went to his home fans with purpose, his players hesitantly following him 0-3 (0-0) in an emotional 108th Hamburg city derby at FC St. Pauli.
On the other side of the field, after the memorable game, the “kiezkis” hugged each other, exhausted and happy. The maroon and white crowd roared from the stands of the sold-out Millerntor Stadium of 29,205. “Number one, that’s us.”
Ironically, city rivals St. Pauli stopped HSV in the 2nd Bundesliga and ended their crisis in the highest derby in 62 years with one strike. “I’m completely done,” coach Timo Schulz said on Sky. His captain Leart Pakarada felt the same. “It’s a great feeling, I couldn’t imagine it better.”
Red for HSV captain Schonlau
Chiez’s high-spirited way contributed to HSV captain Sebastian Schonlau’s (28) red card. His side had the better of Etienne Amenido for more than 60 minutes after he was sent off with an emergency brake. “Of course you get disappointed when you lose a derby in that context,” HSV coach Walter said. “But we never gave up.”
With their first defeat in seven games, his side now have to worry about the league leaders at the weekend. It was also the first loss overseas after an eight-game winning streak. It was the first win in seven games for St. Pauli and a huge relief. Eric Smith (61st), Marcel Hartel (74th) and David Otto (89th) made for a maroon and white party atmosphere.
Before the game of risk, the police operation caused a lot of noise. The police detained several supporters of “St. Pauli” FC. A video circulating on Twitter shows such an arrest, where a police officer uses coercion in the form of physical violence. “It is necessary to check whether symmetry has been preserved,” the police said on Twitter. The video shows how the police are pinning several people to the ground. One of the officers beat the man as he lay on the ground, while the other grabbed his legs. “St. Pauli” FC called for clarifications.
Fürth misses the win against Rostock
Meanwhile, SpVgg Greuther Fürth suffered another low blow against rustic Hansa Rostock shortly before the final whistle. The Franks did not let the rough game of the guests push them back 2:2 (1:0). Ryan Malone’s (90+3) penalty just before the end of the game gave the frustrated Franconians their second win of the season. After the third consecutive draw at the beginning of the 12th game, coach Mark Schneider’s team rose to the 15th position in the table.
“Fürth” captain Branimir Hrgota (20th minute) scored in front of 10-516 spectators. Lukas Frøde (57′) equalized with Ragnar Ache’s (60′) header after a great cross from Simon Asta. After a yellow-red against John Verhoek (62nd), Afimiko Pululu (88th) missed a great chance to make it 3-1 just before the end. In response, Malone shocked the hosts.
