Two weeks after clinching the Regionalliga Bayern, Bayern Munich dropped points for the second time on the trot, with a 1-1 draw against 15th place TSV 1860 Rosenheim.
After 80 minutes of scoreless play, Bayern Munich II took the lead in the 83rd minute behind Kevin Friesenbichler's 15th goal of the season, putting him into joint goal scoring lead with Julian Green for the Bayern Munich reserve team. With 7 minutes plus stoppage remaining, and given Bayern Munich II's dominance on the evening, it looked like the reserves were on their way to earning a grand total of 80 points on the season. However, a last minute defensive mistake gave Rosenheim the opportunity they needed to level the score and send the reserves home with a draw.
With Lukas Raeder, Pierre Hojbjerg, Mitchell Weiser, and Julian Green all featuring for their respective international camps or the senior side, Bayern Munich II has been missing some of their very best players in recent games, forcing them to adapt. With the recent additions of Raif Husic, Steven Ribery, and Angelos Oikonomou, Bayern Munich II have found a new crop of starters and depth in their push for the 3.Liga. Steven Ribery contributed the lone assist in this draw, featuring for 90 minutes, while Raif Husic started his 7th match for the Bayern Munich II side. Angelos Oikonomou played a reduced role, but has been a versatile midfield option playing across attacking midfield and in his defensive midfield role while logging just over 600 minutes. It's certainly good to see Bayern Munich II have their bench and depth sorted out ahead of the promotion playoffs. Because on Wednesday, the real test begins.
