Hamburg have scored the worst own goal you'll ever see, it's astonishingly bad
| Last updated
Hamburg have scored one of the worst own goals you'll ever see in the derby against St Pauli.
Goalkeeper Heuer Fernandes laid the ball to his centre-back Stephan Ambrosius, who passed it square to team-mate Guilherme Ramos.
The Portuguese centre-back then delivered a poor pass back to goal, wrong-footing his keeper.
In an attempt to avoid the ball from trickling out for a corner, Fernandes tried to smash the ball clear, only to lash it into his own net from a yard out.

Sometimes it's better to just lump it up the pitch...
Fans were quick to laugh at Hamburg's misery.
One person on X, the social media platform formally known as Twitter, said: "The Hamburg keepers had a mare."
Another wrote: "This own goal scored by Hamburg in the derby for St Pauli is an instant classic. One of the best OGs you’ll ever see."
A third said: "Hamburg have pulled off an incredible own goal in the derby against St Pauli."
A fourth person wrote: "Hamburg have just conceded possibly the worst own goal of all time."
A fifth added: "Hamburg have just scored the worst ever own goal. I actually cannot fathom that. Top of the table clashes have become a bit ridiculous to watch sometimes, attritional and defined by errors."
Finally, one fan said: "Obviously we're some way from the inevitable heat death of the universe but if this own goal from tonight's Hamburg derby is ever surpassed I'll be very surprised."
