Dynamo Dresden has reached the second round of the DFB Cup with a 4-1 victory over Hamburger SV. While the Saxons punished the guests’ mistakes and made effective use of the opportunities, Hamburg missed out on top-class opportunities. In front of 10,000 spectators, new signing Yannik Stark took the home side after 142 seconds. For the first time since March, spectators were again allowed in the stadium.
After the game there was an incident with HSV professional Toni Leistner. The Dresden-born and ex-Dynamo player had apparently been loudly mobbed by a fan and insulted with gestures. Leistner then jumped into the stands and pushed the man to the ground. He did not allow his family to be insulted, Leistner justified his freak, for which he later apologized. Dynamo Dresden backed Leistner and described the rabble as shameful. The club wants to identify the spectator and possibly sanction it.
