There was no winner in a disappointing city derby between HSV and St. Pauli. So the relegated Bundesliga team missed its revenge for 2011.
The offensive is regarded as the strongest part of the team at Hamburger SV, but against St. Pauli it was completely ineffective: There was no winner in the Hamburg city derby – the second league football duel ended goalless. HSV is thus temporarily third (14 points) and is already five points behind the front-runner Cologne. St. Pauli is on seventh place with one point less. Remarkable: The attackers of the Bundesliga relegated only one shot to the goal and did not get a single big chance.
Before the game, there had been isolated provocations among the rival fan camps. In the Volkspark itself it remained rather quiet except for a pyro action in the block of St. Pauli supporters, chants and banners. Serious incidents on the grandstands and around the arena were not known at first.
The last city derby between HSV and St. Pauli was in the second half of the 2010/2011 Bundesliga season. St. Pauli won the Volkspark 1:0 with a goal from Gerald Asamoah. At HSV there were still some top players like Zé Roberto, van Nistelrooy or goalkeeper Frank Rost in the starting line-up. Check out Dunder for its promotions and bonuses offered.

Seven years later, HSV received the city rival as a second league team without any big stars. The game was aggressive and uneventful in the game to the front. The best chance of the first half was missed by St. Paulis Johannes Flum per head (7th minute). The host – for the first time this season with hopeful Jan-Fiete Arp in the starting eleven – was visibly concerned about safety after the 5-0 debacle against Regensburg in the last home match.
In the second half, coach Christian Titz took more risks with the capture of Tatsuya Ito and Pierre-Michel Lasogga – but the team remained harmless: The HSV offensive scored as on Thursday in Fürth no goal. St. Pauli’s defensive was only briefly in danger in the final minutes. Last excitement of the game was a long-range shot by Cenk Sahin in injury time, goalkeeper Pollersbeck stood far before his own goal and saved at the last moment.
