SpVgg Greuther Fürth 0-2 FC St. Pauli

After dominating the first period, the visitors from Hamburg took a deserved lead in the 34th minute when Marc Hornschuh poked home at the back post after Fürth failed to clear a corner.

The hosts came out confidently after the interval, Marco Stiepermann coming within inches of restoring parity with a long-range strike. Jurgen Gjasula and Zlatko Tripic were next to threaten, but Fürth were hit with a sucker-punch when Pauli doubled the lead and rounded off the scoring in the 62nd minute through Waldemar Sobota's lovely finish.
