Simon Makienok led FC St. Pauli to victory in the explosive Hamburg city duel of the 2nd Bundesliga against HSV with two goals.
The Dane made a significant contribution to the prestigious and well-deserved 3: 2 (1: 1) success of the Kiezklub against the unloved neighbor on Friday evening in the classy game with his goals in the 56th and 58th minutes.
Finn Ole Becker (27th) had shot the hosts from Millerntor in the lead in the first half, Sonny Kittel (43rd) managed the flattering equalizer for HSV at the time.
Robin Glatzel (77th) later only managed the connecting gate for the guests.
The FC St. Pauli won the last five derbies against the rival from the Volkspark four wins in a draw and can at least continue to feel like the unofficial city champions until the second leg.
As a result of the success, coach Timo Schultz's team took over the table lead after three game days with seven points at least until Saturday.
The HSV, however, slipped after the first defeat of the season.
Right from the start, both rivals played an intense game in front of 10,003 spectators.
After ten minutes, HSV seemed to gain control of the game.
But then they faced the attack force of FC St. Pauli.
Marcel Hartel, who was only signed on by Arminia Bielefeld on Tuesday, proved to be a driver and source of ideas in the Kiez team.
HSV started the second half better, but there were no opportunities.
Not so with FC St. Pauli.
The team quickly switched to winning the ball and was always dangerous.
After Makienok's one-two punch, HSV did not give up, nothing more than Glatzel's shortening succeeded.
Aue creates a draw "on" Schalke
Schalke 04 have meanwhile gambled away their second win of the season.
The team of coach Dimitrios Grammozis did not get beyond a 1: 1 (1: 0) despite the lead against Erzgebirge Aue.
After a defeat, a win and a draw, the Royal Blues have so far had four points to book.
New signing Dominick Drexler (32nd), who played his 100th second division game, met Schalke in front of 20,126 spectators.
Sascha Härtel equalized (86th).
For Aue it was already the third draw of the season.
Almost a week after moving into the second round of the DFB Cup, Schalke only rarely managed to get dangerously close to the opposing penalty area at the beginning.
Yaroslav Mikhailov, who shot the ball over the crossbar from close range, missed the best chance so far (21st).
After submission by Schalke's top scorer Simon Terodde, Drexler finally scored, but Aue hardly got through against the compact hosts.
Even after the break, the relegated Bundesliga had the game under control.
Aue acted too passively, but Schalke also slowed down a bit before Härtel met.Keywords:
