Hamburger SV can celebrate their first derby win since March 2019.
At the start of the 20th matchday in the 2nd Bundesliga, HSV beat St. Pauli 2-1 (0-1).
Guido Burgstaller put the guests ahead (30'), then Sebastian Schonlau (58') and Bakary Jatta (70') turned the game around.
This brings the temporarily third-placed HSV (34 points) closer to leaders St. Pauli (37).
During the week, both teams had made it into the quarter-finals of the cup.
St. Pauli surprisingly knocked out Borussia Dortmund, HSV advanced on penalties at 1. FC Köln.
But there was no question of tiredness, especially HSV came into the game energetically.
A deflected long-range shot by Miro Muheim was the first spectacular offensive scene (10').
The hosts got more out of the game, good opportunities from time to time - and yet St. Pauli scored the only goal of the first half.
After a free-kick cross headed back into the center by Etienne Amenyido, striker Burgstaller headed the ball over the line from close range (30').
But then the Hamburgers were rewarded – and Schonlau's hour struck.
In the cup game against Cologne, he was unlucky enough to concede a penalty kick in extra time, which then condemned Hamburg to trembling in the penalty shoot-out.
Now Schonlau scored after a corner kick to equalize (58th).
Almost ten minutes later, the next goal celebration: Jatta gave HSV the lead (70') with a shot into the left corner, which is well worth seeing, after Sonny Kittel had served him up with a fine pass.
Kittel had already prepared the 1:1.
Daniel Heuer Fernandes saved the HSV victory with a save against a dangerous shot by Burgstaller (82nd).
The game in Düsseldorf got off to a flying start for Nürnberg: Lino Tempelmann shot from a distance and was immediately lucky, slightly deflected by a team-mate and his shot landed in the goal from around 20 meters (2').
And this one goal was enough for FCN, who temporarily moved up to fourth place.
Dusseldorf remains in the bottom third of the table.
