A first half outburst from Schweinsteiger gets the reserves a bit closer to the Regionalliga Bayern title

Bayern Munich reserve manager Erik ten Hag inched three points closer to the promotional playoff when his side buried bottom-of-the-table TSV Rain am Lech 5-1 on Friday.

Tobias Schweinsteiger recorded a Doppelpack in the first half, his third multi-goal game of the season. Half of his 10 goals have come against Rain am Lech, as he records double digit goals for the fourth time in his career.

Ten Hag paired Schweinsteiger with Kevin Friesenbichler up front, who scored the first goal in the second half on a penalty. Dennis Chessa and Patrick Weihrauch also got on the score sheet as the lone goal for Rain am Lech came from Mariusz Suszko in the 85th minute.

"I am very satisfied with our offensive successes," said ten Hag. "When a club scores five goals, then someone can't evaluate differently."

Benno Schmitz and Alessandro Schöpf both returned to the side after being called up for squad depth for Bayern's match against Eintracht Braunschweig. Mitchell Weiser was a notable omission, making him available for Pep Guardiola should Daniel van Buyten (paternity leave) or Diego Contento (ankle) not be available for the team sheet against Werder Bremen.

Bayern II have moved six points ahead of FV Illertissen with the victory, although Illertissen play Bayern Hof on Saturday. The reserves need nine points to secure the Regionalliga Bayern title, qualifying them for the promotional playoff into the 3. Bundesliga.
