Hamburg (dpa) – Police expect the Hamburg city duel between HSV and FC St. Pauli “probably the quietest derby of all time from a police perspective”. The spokeswoman Sandra Levgrün said in the Hamburg media.
Due to the corona pandemic, the match (6.30pm / Sky) currently only allows 1000 spectators. Guest fans of FC St. Pauli are not even allowed to enter the Volksparkstadion. Contrary to usual, the focus of the police action will not be on separating rival fan groups in front of the stadium. “Due to the small number of spectators in the stadium, our focus is on the club and pub scene where football is watched,” said Levgrün.
