Hamburg (AP) - The FC St. Pauli has stopped the big city rivals Hamburger SV in the 2nd Bundesliga. The Kiezclub won the emotionally charged 102nd Derby 2-0 (1-0) on Monday night and celebrated its first win against neighbors since 16 February 2011.
Dimitrios Diamantakos (18th) with his fourth goal of the season and an own goal from HSV captain Rick van Drongelen ensured the success of FC St. Pauli in front of 29,226 spectators at the sold-out Millerntor Stadium.
It was the first victory since February 16, 2011 (1-0) in a competitive match against the great rival of the Volkspark and the first home win against HSV since February 1960, then still in the league.
Due to the painful defeat after four wins succession of Hamburger SV slipped behind the Bundesliga relegated VfB Stuttgart in second place. St. Pauli came through the second victory to tenth place.
The hosts started snappish and aggressive. The HSV could hardly rest. From orderly play structure was hardly to see the favorite from St. Paulis neighborhood. Only midfield man Adrian Fein tried to drive his HSV colleague.
The Kiez Kicker developed more and more opportunities over time. Especially Marvin Knoll and Mats Möller Daehli drove the game to their team. Knoll (14.) also tested HSV keeper Daniel Heuer Fernandes from more than 30 meters. He was also the one who headed the ball four minutes later head to the post - the rebound dusted off Diamantakos.
Only after a good 25 minutes, HSV managed to break free. But only in the 43th minute it was dangerous for the FC St. Pauli, as Sonny Kittel hit the post with a volley. Two minutes later, he and his teammates cheered too early after Lukas Hinterseer hit. But the goal was canceled because the ball should have been off Bakery Jatta's cross.
As referee Sven Jablonski wanted to whistle the second half, let fans of both clubs in their blocks fireworks and pyrotechnics burn down. The game continued with a few minutes delay. It had remained calm before the emotionally charged game and during the first half. After numerous incidents in the previous derby on 10 March at FC St. Pauli, the people responsible had strengthened the security measures.
HSV coach Dieter Hecking responded after the break and brought Aaron Hunt as a game designer for the weak Khaled Narey. And that worked: The guests pressed the FC St. Pauli in the half. Hinterseer (49./53.) Failed twice at St. Pauli keeper Robin Himmelmann. Shortly thereafter, the Austrian put the ball free-standing as a short distance over the gate.
Somewhat surprisingly then fell the decision: A quick free-kick confused the HSV cover, the previously good van Drongelen deflected the ball in his rescue action into his own goal. After that, the resistance of the guests was broken. The HSV had little chance. He was lucky that the defeat was not higher. Möller Daehli (82 ') hit the post.
