Hamburg - Florian Kringe's late volley earned ten-man FC St. Pauli a 1-1 draw against Fortuna Düsseldorf.

The hosts had the better of the opening exchanges, but only fashioned their first real opening of the encounter just before the half-hour mark when Lennart Thy's effort from inside the penalty area flew just wide of the post. Minutes later, Fin Bartels managed to round Fabian Giefer in the Düsseldorf goal, but his goal-bound effort was blocked by the retreating visitors' defence.

Düsseldorf took the lead two minutes into the second half. Oliver Fink's clever ball over the top of the Pauli defence released Aristide Bance, who kept his composure to score his first league goal of the season. The hosts' defender Markus Thorandt was shown a straight red card for lashing out at Bance with ten minutes remaining, but Kringe's spectacular strike just a minute later earned Michael Frontzeck's side a share of the spoils
