St. Pauli became the first club in Germany to make four substitutions in one go in their 4-0 defeat at SV Darmstadt on Saturday.

Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 implemented a temporary rule change and -- following the International Football Association Board's advice -- allowed five substitutions per match for the remainder of the season.

Last week, the German Football League (DFL) recommended not to make more than two substitutions at once -- with a total of three opportunities and the half-time break -- when restarting the league amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Not all teams followed the recommendation and ahead of the second matchday, the league scrapped the advice and allowed teams to make all five substitutions at once.
