Jackson Irvine was on the scoresheet in the Hamburg derby but it was a costly defeat for St Pauli in their bid for promotion, while Jimmy Jeggo was sent off in Scotland.
St Pauli were beaten 4-3 by Hamburg SV, with Irvine netted his side’s third goal to make it 4-3 in the 79th minute, rising highest to glance home a header from a corner.
But St Pauli couldn’t find a late equalizer, with the result meaning Hamburg are second on 56 points and St Pauli are fourth on 47 points with five games to play.
The top two automatically go up and third plays off for promotion against 16th from the top flight.

Jimmy Jeggo was sent off in the 48th minute of Hibernian’s 1-1 draw at St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership.
Jeggo lunged for a loose ball which he won in a tight contest with Connor McLennan but referee Craig Napier adjudged the challenge to have been dangerous, given there was contact after the ball had been won and handed him a straight red.
The VAR didn’t intervene which incensed Hibs boss Lee Johnson, who said: “It doesn’t surprise me because I’ve seen too much inconsistency throughout the season.
“When a player wins the ball cleanly and an opponent steams in blind-side for a tackle and unfortunately maybe gets caught, maybe doesn’t, for a player to go is absolutely ridiculous, particularly given the magnitude of the game.
“Much to my dismay and shock it wasn’t overturned [by VAR]. The system is broken, it needs fixing and I trust the powers that be to do that.”
Ryan McGowan played a full game for St Johnstone, while Lewis Miller was an 85th minute sub for Hibs.
Aaron Mooy was a 65th minute substitute and earned a 3/10 rating from Glasgow Live as Celtic stumbled to a 1-1 home draw with Motherwell.
Glasgow Live wrote: “Found himself on the bench lately. Had an excellent campaign and sure to play an important role in the run-in.”
Hearts won 6-1 over Ross County, with Kye Rowles, Nathaniel Atkinson and Cameron Devlin all in the starting line-up. Garang Kuol was unused, with Atkinson coming off in the 58th minute and Devlin replaced in the 67th minute. Rowles put in a full shift.
Rowles earned a 7/10 rating from Edinburgh Evening News: “Shaky moment early when he got turned down County’s left but settled down and was solid.”
Atkinson got a 7/10 rating: “Missed a great chance to put Hearts 4-0 up shortly before the penalty. Forced off injured.”
Devlin got a 9/10 rating: “Tremendous. The Australian was back to his best. Did his usual graft while his passing was also top notch.”
