Hamburg - 1. FC Köln returned to winning ways on Matchday 16 thanks to a hard-fought 3-0 victory at FC St. Pauli.

Following on from their two recent victories, St. Pauli began confidently and dictated the play initially, but were left ruing some early misses when Austrian defender Kevin Wimmer nodded Patrick Helmes' corner into the back of the net to give the visitors the lead. Helmes got on the scoresheet himself before things went from bad to worse for Pauli following Sören Gonther's red card for a professional foul on Anthony Ujah. The three points were wrapped up 11 minutes from time when when Yannick Gerhardt added a third for Köln, handing the Billy Goats their first victory in three matches.
