We’re back on the trail of the three Bayern Munich players on on loan to start the 2018-19 Bundesliga season. Marco Friedl and Timothy Tillman are playing this season with Bundesliga clubs Werder Bremen and Nürnberg, while Adrian Fein is in the 2.Bundesliga with Jahn Regensburg.
Marco Friedl - Werder Bremen
Marco Friedl started at centerback and played all 90 minutes in Werder Bremen’s 3-1 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf. Friedl completed the most passes of anyone in the match. Dusseldorf’s loan goal came on a penalty conceded by his centerback partner Sebastian Langkamp, so a positive thing for Friedl there. Considering this was the first start for Friedl or Langkamp in the last five matches and this is their first win in that time, it will be interesting to see if they get a run out next weekend against Borussia Dortmund.
Friedl’s loan with Werder ends in June 2019.
Timothy Tillman - Nürnberg
Timothy Tillman didn’t suit up for Nurberg in Bayern’s big 3-0 victory. While he’s been playing for Nurnberg’s reserves in the Regionalliga Bayern up until now, they don’t have another game until March 2. (Yes, the Regionalligas take a really long winter break.) I don’t really know what’s going on with him. Bayern should bring him back to the club in January. Him being stuck in the Regionalliga with another team’s reserves is pointless. He can join the push for promotion into the 3.Liga with Bayern II.
Tillman’s loan with Nürnberg ends in June 2019.
Adrian Fein - Jahn Regensburg (2.Bundesliga Matchday 16)
Adrian Fein went 64 minutes in Jahn Regensburg’s 3-1 loss to FC Koln in some Friday action. They’re now on 22 points and in 10th place. Regensburg will definitely be expecting to take six points out of their final two matches, however. They’ll play the bottom two teams in Sandhausen and Ingolstadt. If they take those six points, they can head into the winter break with confidence that they’ll keep challenging for promotion in the spring.
Fein’s loan with Jahn Regensburg ends in June 2019.
