Bayern Munich have Marco Friedl and Timothy Tillman loaned out to fellow Bundesliga clubs Werder Bremen and Nürnberg. This week, another loan was made official with Adrian Fein heading to 2.Bundesliga side Jahn Regensburg. It can be hard to track their progress and playing time throughout the season, so this guide will help.
Marco Friedl - Werder Bremen
Following their last minute come-from-behind draw in Matchday 1 against Hannover 96, Werder Bremen manager Florian Kohfeldt stuck with the same backline this week against Eintracht Frankfurt. This week, Werder found the winning goal in the 96th minute on a free kick. So, while they are sitting pretty on four points after two matches, their play hasn’t exactly been confidence inspiring. Friedl will likely continue to make the bench for Werder as they move forward, as he’s versatile and can play at left back or midfield. Cracking the starting lineup, barring an injury, may be a different story.
Friedl’s loan with Werder ends in June 2019.
Timothy Tillman - Nürnberg
For the second straight week, Timothy Tillman made the Nürnberg bench but didn’t see the field for any action. Michael Köllner’s side got a goal just after halftime and held on to a 1-1 draw against Mainz to give Nürnberg their first point of the Bundesliga season. With Nürnberg likely featuring in a relegation fight all season long, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of playing time the 19 year old gets.

Adrian Fein - Jahn Regensburg (Matchday 4)
Earlier this week, it was announced that Bayern II player Adrian Fein would be joining 2.Bundesliga side Jahn Regensburg on a one year loan. As a central midfielder it’s unlikely that Fein would see any time with the first team any time soon (or, quite frankly, in the near future), so him going out on loan is likely the best thing for his development. If Fein has a solid year on loan, don’t be shocked to see Bayern offload him in the summer.
