FC St. Pauli celebrated the 106th anniversary of the club's founding in style with a 5-2 home win over 1. FC Kaiserslautern on Matchday 34.
There was a frenetic opening at the Millerntor-Stadion, with the visitors going in front through Lukas Görtler after just four minutes. Their lead was short-lived, however, as Japanese forward Ryo Miyaichi equalised for the hosts within a matter of seconds. The 23-year-old was involved again when St. Pauli took the lead, crossing for Lennart Thy to head in midway through the first half.
There was plenty of excitement after the interval too. Miyaichi, making his first-ever start for the club, grabbed his second of the game on 57 minutes, before Sebastian Maier put the outcome beyond all doubt with a well-taken finish. Ruben Jenssen pulled a goal back for the guests moments later, but St. Pauli had the final word and capped a dominant display when midfielder Christopher Buchtmann added a fifth.
