    After six games without a win, Jahn Regensburg was finally able to celebrate again. A consistent performance in the first half was enough against harmless FC St. Pauli on Sunday (September 18th, 2022) in a 2-0 (2-0) win.

    Der Jahn, who lost 3-0 in Paderborn last week, wanted to use the home game against the North Germans to work his way up from the rather unfamiliar lower half of the table.

    And this time, the people of Donaustadt could rely on their luck right from the start.

    Jahn in luck – first post, then penalty

    Just three minutes were played when a wonderful 18-metre free kick from Hamburg’s Leart Paqarada hissed at the left post of the Jahn goal.

    A little later, coach Mersad Selimbegović’s team looked gratefully towards the referee team. Because after a rather harmless bump from St. Pauli’s Betim Fazliji in the Hamburg penalty area against Christian Viet, referee Nicolas Winter decided on the advice of VAR to give Regensburg a penalty. Andreas Albers gratefully accepted the gift and made it 1-0 in the 8th minute.

    From then on, Jahn left the direction of the game to the guests and acted from a secure defensive position. St. Pauli accepted the role, got a lot of possession and two decent opportunities. But neither Johannes Eggestein nor his strike partner Etienne Amenyido were able to take advantage of their chances – each from the cross.

    But the bell rang on the other side: In the 40th minute, Hamburg left the 1.93 meter man Albers unmarked after Viet’s cross in the penalty area – the former Hamburg player took advantage of this and headed in to make it 2-0.

    Schultz troops in front too harmless

    St. Pauli’s coach Timo Schultz made two changes during the break, but even the fresh staff hardly provided any more penetration in the game.

    The Hamburgers came along very woodenly and didn’t manage to create a real goal opportunity for the entire second 45 minutes. After six games without a win, Jahn got his third win of the season quite comfortably.
