THERE'S ONE!

Nuremberg are back within touching distance. Mats Moller Daehli puts in a lovely cross from a corner and Schäffler hardly has to jump to get his head to it and send it looping into the back of the net.

ALMOST FOUR

Kyereh fires the ball into the back of the net, but the flag is up for offside and it won't count.

TWO-GOAL LEAD RESTORED!

Pauli once again have a two-goal cushion, and they have substitute Adam Dzwigala to thank for it. The Nuremberg defenders clear the ball only has far as the edge of the box, where Dzwigala is lurking. He takes a touch and curls the ball sweetly into the corner.

EQUALIZER IN THE OFFING?

information
xGoals
The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).
According to xG, Nuremberg should be outscoring the visitors. Do they have what it takes to turn expectations into goals?

TRYING HIS LUCK FROM DISTANCE

Guido Burgstaller is looking for a second goal. This time, the striker tries to take a page out of Geis's book and takes aim from far out, only to see the ball go high and harmlessly wide.
56'

SHURANOV DENIED!

Pauli lose the ball in front of their penalty area and Nuremberg are there to pounce. The ball comes through to Shuranov, who draws his foot back to take the shot, only for Irvine to stick his foot in and clear the danger.
52'

KYEREH LOOKING DANGEROUS

Daniel-Kofi Kyereh has been quiet today, but he's showing some flashes of what he can do as he works the ball nicely down the right. His cross is unfortunately too high to really threaten this time, though.
49'

SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN!

Tom Kraus puts in an excellent cross from the right towards Schäffler, who is denied only by an outstretched leg.

PAQARADA MAKES WAY

He's got a goal and an assist to his name, but Leart Paqarada has picked up a knock and goes off, with Lars Ritzka his replacement.

MATHENIA WITH LIGHTNING REFLEXES

Burgstaller nearly has a second as he fires a snapshot, which takes a wicked deflection. It would have been in were it not for an outstretched hand from the keeper than tips it over.

THEY PULL ONE BACK!

Finally, Nuremberg find a way past Vasilj to give themselves a bit of hope. Johannes Geis collects the ball some 30 yards away from goal and puts his laces through it. The ball takes a dip in the air, and while Vasilj gets his fingertips to it, he can't keep that rocket out.

SETTLING THINGS DOWN A BIT

St Pauli are in the driver's seat and are taking their time now. They move the ball around the pitch and probe at Nuremberg to find a way through for a third goal.
15'

THREE STOPS IN A ROW!

St Pauli keeper Nikola Vasilj makes three excellent stops in quick succession to keep the clean sheet. His defenders will be thanking him profusely for that!
14'

PRESSURE AROUND THE GOAL

Nuremberg know they have a mountain to climb, but they're getting to work already. They manage to work the ball around the area, looking for an opening, but each attempt at a shot on goal meets only a Pauli defender's leg.
10'

PAQARADA MAKES IT TWO!

He created the first goal for Burgstaller and now Leart Paqarada sees the favour returned. The striker plays a tame pass into the centre and Paqarada runs onto it coolly and slots it into that same bottom corner.

NEARLY ANOTHER!

Pauli are buzzing and nearly grab a second. Mathenia does extremely well to deny the visitors a quick double punch.

BURGSTALLER DOES IT!

Guido Burgstaller has his goal against his former club. A cross comes in from the left and the striker is in exactly the right place to get his head to it and put just enough direction on it to send it past the keeper and into the net at the far post.
