TSV 1860 Munich 2-0 FC St. Pauli

The opening quarter of an hour belonged to the visitors, who hit the ground running and twice went close to breaking the deadlock as Waldemar Sobota saw his effort turned onto the post by Vitus Eicher before Lennart Thy headed wide from six yards out. Having survived the early scares 1860 began imposing themselves on proceedings, but despite having more of the ball, failed to produce any clear-cut chances before the break.

With St Pauli sitting deep and looking to counter, the hosts showed more ambition after the restart are were promptly rewarded with a quickfire double before the hour mark. Michael Liendl got the ball rolling with a sweetly struck effort from 25 yards, which was followed up just three minutes later by Ruben Okotie finding the top corner from the edge of the area to secure 1860 only their second win of the campaign.
