2:3! HSV lose in intense derby

The opener for, Becker (27th) was brought level by Kittel (43rd). Only Glatzel (77th) was able to respond to Makienok's brace (56th/58th). 

HSV lost the 106th city derby against FC St. Pauli. The Red Shorts lost 2:3 (1:1) at the Millerntor on Friday evening (13th August). In a very intense derby, the hosts took the lead through Finn Ole Becker (27th) after a period of pressure in which they had several opportunities within a few minutes. Sonny Kittel equalised shortly before the break after Bakery Jatta's assist to make it 1-1, but in the second half it was St. Pauli's attacker Simon Makienok who shocked HSV with a double strike (56th + 58th) and set the course for victory. Robert Glatzel scored the final goal (77th), but despite the pressure, the final offensive was unsuccessful.

Hectic start to the city duel...

HSV coach Tim Walter changed his starting eleven on two positions: using Meffert for Rohr and Jatta for Wintzheimer - and a lot of mentality, which would be needed in this city derby. The Red Shorts showed this mentality right from the start, but FC St. Pauli - inspired by the support of the fans at the Millerntor - did just as much. The result was an exciting game with a lot of power, early yellow cards and two teams that pressed high and aggressively. In addition, both teams had one big chance each in the first quarter of an hour, but then the game tilted more and more in favour of the home side, who created an incredible amount of pressure, created chances and, after a Burgstaller shot against the post, deservedly took the lead through Becker after just under half an hour. In this phase, the Red Shorts really had to suffer, had to defend a lot and hold their ground to stay in the game. They managed to do this with their combined efforts and a pinch of luck - and then even struck back before the break: Kittel completed a brilliant HSV combination in the 43rd minute to make it 1-1 at the break and thus brought the visitors back into the game.
Makeniok's brace after just under an hour of play provided the preliminary decision in this Hamburg city derby. Makeniok's brace after just under an hour of play ensured the preliminary decision in this Hamburg city derby.

... and bitter derby defeat

The equaliser gave the team a noticeable tailwind. HSV came out of the dressing room wide awake, took command immediately after the restart and put the hosts under a lot of pressure. The result was a number of goalmouth scares - including one that was to heat up the tempers afterwards. In the 53rd minute, Medic hit Jatta in the penalty area, causing him to stumble, but referee Osmers did not blow for the penalty kick.

And instead - as is so often the case in football - there was almost a clatter on the opposite side. And that even twice. Makeniok's double strike in the 56th and 58th minute came as a surprise but was effective. The Red Shorts gave their all in the face of the sudden 3-1 deficit, but found it difficult to recover from the blow. Nevertheless, Glatzel's second goal of the season brought the Walter team back within a quarter of an hour of the end, but the final attack that followed lacked the final punch. After 96 extremely intense derby minutes, the home side won 3:2.
