04.08.2007: St. Pauli upset Leverkusen in German Cup

Second division St. Pauli beat Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 on Saturday to knock the Bundesliga side out in the first round of the German Cup.

Fabian Boll scored in the 87th minute for St. Pauli, regular giantkillers who reached the semi-finals two years ago. For Leverkusen, who finished fifth last season in the Bundesliga and qualified for the UEFA Cup, it was their first Cup exit in the first round in 11 years in a match played in front of a crowd of 15,000 in Hamburg.

Werder Bremen avoided embarrassment against third division side Eintracht Braunschweig with a Boubacar Sanogo in the 90th minute giving them a 1-0 win.

On the first weekend of competition in the new season after a three-month break, three other Bundesliga clubs advanced to the next round with victories over opponents from lower divisions.

Borussia Dortmund beat FC Magdeburg 4-1, Hanover 96 defeated Rot-Weiss Ahlen 3-1, and Hertha Berlin came safely through 3-0 against SpVgg Unterhaching.
