Etienne Amenyido gave St Pauli a fourth-minute lead from close range, and Axel Witsel's own goal in the 40th minute doubled the host's advantage.

"We caused ourselves several problems in the opening 15 minutes and also conceded a goal straightaway. That's when it gets difficult," head coach Marco Rose said.

 

"The way we went about trying to score the equaliser in the first half was a little rash. After going 2-0 down, we adjusted a few things. But the key issue is how we, as the holders, started this cup battle. We didn't get that right."
