St Pauli prevailed 1-0 at the home of their bitter city rivals Hamburg in the delayed Bundesliga match tonight.

Former Germany international Gerald Asamoah claimed the only goal of the game in the 59th minute in front of 57,500 fans at Hamburg's Imtech Arena. The result lifts St Pauli up to 11th place in the league standings, five points above the relegation play-off berth and five points behind seventh-placed Hamburg.

It was only Hamburg's third home defeat of the league season. The match was originally due to be played on 9 February but was postponed due to heavy downpours that left the pitch unplayable.
