Hamburg vs St Pauli − Match preview

The Hamburg derby was a rare treat until Hamburg’s shocking relegation from the Bundesliga at the end of the 2017/18 season. Since then Hamburg and St Pauli have faced off three times in the league, resulting in one draw and a win apiece.

Hamburg are undoubtedly the better-resourced and more successful of the two clubs, but St Pauli have a cult following all over the globe, thanks to the club’s strong left-wing values and the supporters’ punk reputation.

Despite beating Hamburg earlier this season, they’ve been struggling on the pitch. They’re 14th (out of 18) at the moment, and relegation is a genuine fear.

Hamburg, meanwhile, are second, and could go level on points with league leaders Arminia if they win today.

This may turn out to be the final Hamburg derby for a while.
