FC St Pauli kept their promotion hopes alive by becoming the first team to beat RB Leipzig on their travels this season thanks to a 1-0 win in Hamburg.

FC St Pauli 1-0 RB Leipzig

Marc Rzatkowski scored what proved to be the only goal of the game in the eighth minute, putting the finishing touch to a fine counterattack.

That was the approach the hosts used throughout the match, with the Leipzig piling on the pressure in an effort to force an equaliser. US forward Fabrice-Jean Picault had a chance to wrap things up for St. Pauli late on, but he could only find the post from a tight angle. It did not matter, though, as the the home side held on to move within eight points of the leaders.
