Match Report


0-3, Defeat in the Derby.

HSV lose the Stadtderby against FC St. Pauli after goals from Smith, Hartel and Otto. Schonlua's dimsissal in the 28th minute brought the turnaround. 

After eight away victories in a row, HSV has to admit defeat again on a foreign pitch. In the derby of all things, the Rothosen lost 0:3 (0:0) at the Millerntor on Friday evening (14 October). The key scene of the game, however, was not a goal but the red card of HSV captain Sebastian Schonlau, who had to leave the pitch after only 28 minutes for an emergency foul. In the second half, however, St. Pauli always scored at the right moment and won 3:0 after goals by Eric Smith (61st), Marcel Hartel (74th) and David Otto (89th). 

Goal taken off and red card ...

Coach Tim Walter changed two positions in his starting eleven compared to the home match against 1 FC Kaiserslautern (1:1). Daniel Heuer Fernandes, who had recovered from a stomach bug, returned to goal and Ransford-Yeboah Königsdörffer was preferred to Sonny Kittel on the left wing. The hosts got off to the better start in an intense first half, with Irvine's header from a corner creating the first chance in the first minute of the game. Amenyido's attempt after just over a quarter of an hour was saved by Heuer Fernandes (16th). On the other side, the ball floundered in the net after 17 minutes, but referee Aytekin correctly whistled Jatta's goal back because the ball had crossed the touchline (17). 

The referee was also at the centre of the action a little later when he consequently sent off HSV captain Sebastian Schonlau after pulling Amenyido for being the last man 20 metres in front of the box (28). The Rothosen now had to play the remaining 60 minutes in a shorthanded situation and did so very well until the half-time whistle. St. Pauli were only able to make use of their superior number once more in the first 45 minutes, when Matanovic extended a cross from Paqarada directly into the far corner with his right outside arm, but the ball bounced against the post. Thus, the Kiezkickers went into the dressing room with a chance plus and outnumbered. 

Pauli scores at the right moments

In the second half, HSV initially tried to keep the score level and to make a few pinpricks up front. Heyer, who had been moved to central defence, and his team-mates were unable to prevent Medic's header (53rd) and Paqarada's shot (54th), but otherwise kept the game open. Until the 61st minute: Then a corner kick by Hartel from the right side found the head of Smith, who nodded in from eight metres to give St. Pauli the lead. This made it doubly difficult for the Rothosen, who responded by playing more openly and trying with all their might to equalise. Coach Walter brought on Jean-Luc Dompe (65th) and later Sonny Kittel (75th), but FC. St. Pauli acted ice-cold and scored at the right time by exploiting the spaces that now opened up. Hartel made it 2:0 a good 15 minutes before the end after Irvine had done the groundwork (74.). And shortly before the end, Otto headed a cross from Ritzka into the net. Thus ended the series of eight away victories in a row. But the defeat in the important derby hurt much more.
