Second Bundesliga: St. Pauli’s winning streak continues

DThe fighters of FC St. Pauli continued their impressive streak of success with a big away win and can now even dream of promotion to the Bundesliga.

Hamburgers won on the 25th game day of the 2nd division with a score of 5:0 (4:0) against the lower SV Sandhausen. This means that St. Pauli are only eight points behind their city rivals Hamburg, who are currently receding in third place.

Jackson Irvine (45th + 3/88th), Manolis Saliakas (19th), Lukas Dashner (24th) and Oladapo Afolayan (25th) scored for Kizkicker, who made an eighth treble in his eighth game under trainer Fabian Hurzeler.

On the other hand, Sandhausen is staggering towards relegation after their seventh straight game without a win. To make matters worse, Alexander Esswein received a red card in injury time in the first half for foul play (45+1).

In front of 7642 spectators at the Hardtwald stadium, SVS was literally torn to pieces by guests in the first 25 minutes. The offensive in Hamburg played cat and mouse with the Kurpfelzer defense completely overwhelmed. Immediately after the removal of Esswein, Irvine increased the result before the break.

At the beginning of the second half, Hamburg missed a lot of chances for new goals. After that, “St. Pauli” only managed to take the lead – it was still possible to score against the guests.

Uja scatters firecrackers from the field

The Lower Saxony derby between Eintracht Braunschweig and Hannover 96 was interrupted twice in the first half on Sunday. The reason for this was flares that were thrown onto the field from the Hannoverener (8th minute) and once from the Brunswick fan block (40th minute). In one scene, Eintracht Frankfurt striker Anthony Uja picked up a burning firecracker and threw it out of bounds.
