Sandhausen (AP) – FC St. Pauli has also extended its outbreak in the 2nd Bundesliga with newcomer Guido Burgstaller.
The team of trainer Timo Schultz lost 0: 1 (0: 1) to SV Sandhausen and suffered their first defeat on the third match day. An own goal from defender Daniel Buballa (45th minute), who repelled a shot from former HSV pro Dennis Diekmeier, saw the hosts win.
The substitute in the 62nd minute Burgstaller could not prevent the defeat. At its debut in front of 1,393 spectators in the Electorale Pfalz, the new addition of FC Schalke 04 remained largely unremarkable.
Hamburg has not been able to win an away game in the second division since February. They got off to a good start in Sandhausen and had a few chances to shoot after just a few minutes. But shortly before half time, SVS professional Julias Biada dribbled through the ranks of the guests and pushed the ball through to Diekmeier – whose shot Buballa turned untenable for keeper Robin Himmelmann. Shortly before the end, St. Pauli got stronger again, but Jannes Wieckhoff (89th) missed the best chance.
