Regensburg (AP) – SSV Jahn Regensburg has finally plunged FC St. Pauli into a crisis in the 2nd Bundesliga. The Upper Palatinate ended their own series of bankruptcies with a 2-0 (2-0) win over the Hanseatic League, who have been without a win for five league games.
Andreas Albers with a penalty kick (8th minute) and a header (41st) ended Regensburg’s sobering record of six games without a win or a goal in front of 12,124 spectators.
The early penalty kick, which was only given after the video assistant intervened, was hotly debated. Pauli defender Betim Fazliji hit Christian Viet, who fell. Albers turned into a reassuring lead. She gave the hosts confidence in a hard-fought game in which Albers doubled in before the break from a cross from former Pauli player Viet. Most recently, the Dane had met Albers on the first day of the game.
The too conservative Kiezkicker tried after the change of sides to shorten the gap. But overall there was not enough offensively. After the highly efficient first half, Regensburg concentrated on compact defense and brought the long-awaited success home. Pauli had to let Jahn pass him in the table.
