A Monday night fixture in Germany's 2. Bundesliga. That should be a relatively sedate affair, right?
St. Pauli vs Hamburger SV in the Hamburg derby is anything but chill, regardless of the day of the week, with the fans bringing steins full of atmosphere to one of German football's great rivalries.
The stage was set with several thousand Hamburg fans marching across the city, with police chaperone, prior to kick-off...
Fireworks in the Stadium
Monday Night Protests
Aside from the literal fireworks, there were also protests at the game being played on Monday night, including an inventive banner from the fans inside the stadium, which read 'Monday??' with an emoji face being sick down the stand.
On the pitch, St Pauli won the game 2-0 courtesy of goals from Dimitris Diamantakos and an own goal from Rick van Drongelen.
The result stopped Der Dino from taking top spot in the league after six games.
