CUP RUN ENDS EARLY AFTER 4-2 DEFEAT AT ELVERSBERG
FC St. Pauli made a losing start to the 2020/21 campaign on Sunday afternoon, going down 4-2 at Regionalliga South-West side SV 07 Elversberg to exit the DFB Cup in the first round.

SCHULTZ AND HIMMELMANN BEMOAN SLOPPINESS AND LACK OF AGGRESSION
After going out of the DFB Cup at the first hurdle following a 4-2 reverse at fourth-tier SV 07 Elversberg, the mood in the camp was more than deflated. In the mixed zone after the game, Timo Schultz, Robin Himmelmann and Marvin Knoll looked back at the 90 minutes and the reasons for the defeat.
Boys in Brown set for cup battle at Elversberg
So many things are different this year due to Covid-19, including the match schedule for the 2020/21 season.

The aim is clear: FC St. Pauli want to advance to the second round!
