FC Bayern Munich II Drop First Home Points to FV Illertissen

Sebastian Widmann

Illertissen became the first team to over-match the reserves, halting their quest towards the Herbstmeisterschaft

For a good stretch, FC Bayern München and their reserves were on the same track, wining game after came and only dropping points one. Now the two have deviated a little farther apart in form.

FC Bayern München II lost their first home game, a 0-2 loss to FV Illertissen. The defeat put a minor speed bump in their quest for the Regionalliga Bayern Herbstmeisterschaft, and ended a four-game winning streak.

Illertissen struck early; a fourth minute "flick" from Vitalij Lux floated over reserve keeper Leopold Zerlinger, getting his first start between the pipes in six matches. Sebastian Schaller added the second goal for FVI in the 52nd minute on a quick counterattack.

FV Illertissen's three points vaulted them over SpVgg Greuther Fürth II for the second spot in the table, and they might be the ones that will push the reserves for their promotion playoff spot. FVI have had success in knockout type games before, qualifying for the DFB Pokal before losing in the first round to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Julian Green made his return after a 3 1/2 week absence with an ankle injury. He came off the bench in the 60th minute to replace Tobias Schweinsteiger, although both prove ineffective against Illertissen. Green may make an appearance in place of Patrick Weihrauch, who picked up a red card in the 90th minute, in next Friday's match against Memmingen.

Whether blasphemy or a blip, the reserves now know who they need to overtake in order to secure the Regionalliga Bayern crown.
