For the first time, Hamburger SV has recovered the city of St. Pauli for almost three years. After moving into the quarterfinals of the DFB Cup, HSV crowned a dream week – and took a big point in the ascent race.

Derby winner, Derby winner, it lured the peak of a dream week through the sparse-filled Volksparkstadion, on the lawn danced the players, and the suffering-tested fans of Hamburg SV suddenly come out of celebration.

For the first time for almost three years, the reds again won the city championship against St. Pauli, shortened by the 2: 1 (0: 1) in the ascent race and burst almost proudly.

This is our home. We have set a clear statement that this game is only part of us, said HSV captain Sebastian Scholar. Three days after moving into the quarterfinals of the DFB Cup at 1. FC Cologne (4: 3 I.e.), the defense director after the guest guidance by Guido Burgs taller (30th) worried the compensation (58.).

For Derby herds, Bakery Jetta (70th) was in the first start-up set after his corona infection.

HSV Captain Scholar: It’s nice that we have rewarded ourselves

For a long time the hitherto last success was over the unloved rivals, the HSV had conquered the millennia in the spring of 2019 (4: 0) and then disappointed in series. There were four bankruptcies and a draw, now the negative run is over. This was done in the 107th city of the first home win for a good 20 years. At the end of 2001, HSV had won 4: 3.

It’s nice that we have rewarded ourselves and, above all, the fans could give back something, Scholar said, he knows the sobering statistics. But it has changed something, the new HSV is fun, the team throw up setbacks – unlike earlier – no more.


Although one was well into the game, said coach Tim Walter, but did not reward himself. But the goal again came a bit unexpected. Nevertheless, we have only shaken ourselves briefly. After the break his team turned the game, the outstanding Sonny Kitten prepared both goals. Jetta caused 2000 spectators, also 200 guest fans were there, with a powerful shot in the long corner for victory.

FC St. Pauli shows itself as a good loser

And St. Pauli? Showed as a good loser. We have to congratulate the HSV for the overall deserved victory, said coach Time Schultz: We had too little access. Only after the residue we have really taken our hearts.

The Kiezkickers did not win four times in a row and can lose the spreadsheet in the 2nd football Bundesliga on Saturday at Darmstadt 98. Much worse: the lead on HSV shrank on three points. If Pauli had decided the derby for himself, the six-time master would hardly have come past.

A derby victory is always special and releases new energy, said Scholar with a view forward, even if it continues in two weeks. Jonas Effect just made the backdrop a bit sad. Too bad that not all fans could be there, then it would have become an incredible evening. But it was a really cool experience.
