Full-strength reserves re-assert supremacy in the Regionalliga Bayern

Johannes Simon

Considering their empty showing against FV Illertissen a week prior, Bayern Munich II needed a victory to reclaim their dominant form. Instead of one victory, they got several.

The match marked the return of several blossoming sprouts to the Bayern farm, including full shifts from Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Julian Green.

Erik ten Hag had his parts back in the side, and the reserves took full advantage, winning 4-0 in Memmingen.

After an unconverted penalty from Green in the 6th minute, Daniel Wein – getting just his second start in central defense – heeled a Rico Strieder free kick into the back of the net in the 12th minute. It marked the sixth goal from a defender for the reserves this season.

The second half was where FC Bayern II made their mark. Mitchell Weiser contributed to two goals in less than ten minutes, squeezing a ball through to Green in the 50th minute and firing a low shot from 18 meters out in the 59th minute.

Højbjerg ended his debut on a high, smacking one into the back of the net in the 82nd minute before Etienne Scholz relieved him in the 86th minute.

With 39 points, FC Bayern II are now just one point away from clinching the Herbstmeisterschaft in the Regionalliga Bayern.
