Victory on the bottom
St. Pauli now plays quite a bit in League 1
Because of Corona, there is only one game on Saturday in the second division – but it is difficult: FC St. Pauli dismantles the bottom of the league Würzburg – and suddenly he has the opportunity to intervene again in the promotion race. Mathematically at least.
FC St. Pauli extended their winning streak as the second-half best team in the second Bundesliga. Hamburg defeated the Würzburger Kickers 4-0 (3-0) at Millerntor Stadium at home and jumped to sixth in the table at the moment. The owners of the land Omar Marmouche (the fourth minute), Rico Pinatelli (18), Leart Bacarada (22) and Daniel Kofi Krier (50).
North Germany celebrated its fourth successive victory and its 11th achievement in the last 14 matches. The Würzburg family’s hopes of remaining in the classroom, on the other hand, fade. Table bottom is six points behind touchdown with five suspended matches.
The crushing Würzburg side bravely wanted their second away win in ten days after the surprise 2-1 in Hanover. Instead, they received their biggest loss this season. In defense, caretaker coach Ralph Santilli’s team has given plenty of room for fun and flexible hamburgers. With 59 goals conceded, the Division Two defense with the most vulnerabilities was a constant warning.
With a wild win, FC St. Pauli continues their stunning rise to the top of the league. At the start of the year the club was still penultimate, four points separate from the Würzburg Kickers – and three months later there were 24. With their ninth win in the second half of the season, they are now just six points behind Hamburg in third place, five days before the end, at least for now. However, the local competitor will play one game less.
