1. FC Nürnberg 1-0 FC St. Pauli

Goals: 1-0 Füllkrug (22')

Hoping to bounce back from their Matchday 32 defeat to Eintracht Braunschweig, the Bavarians started positively, bossing both pace and possession. They saw their dominance pay off 22 minutes in, Niclas Füllkrug converting Georg Margreitter’s cross from close range.

Rene Weiler’s men remained on top of proceedings after the break, despite clear-cut chances proving difficult to come by at both ends. Having sealed third place in Germany’s second tier, Nürnberg will now play the club that finishes 16th in the Bundesliga - Eintracht Frankfurt, SV Werder Bremen or VfB Stuttgart - for the right to play in the top flight next season.
