Bayern Munich II was handed a bitter defeat from Carl Zeiss Jena on Friday afternoon. The amateurs continued their poor form as they slumped to one win in their last seven matches in the 3.Liga. Will this be a wake-up call for Sebastian Hoeness’ team?

Coming into the game off the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw to local rivals 1860 Munich, the amateurs likely fancied their chances against the bottom-placed Jena. Bayern started well. Michael Cuisance, sent down to the second team to get game time, scored in the ninth minute. However, the Bavarians’ defense didn’t last long. Just two minutes later they conceded a goal, and then another one in the 38th minute. The score was 1:2 on the half-time.

In 75’ minute, Bayern managed to equalize, but the joy didn’t last long. After just three minutes, Paul Will scored an own goal and that was eventually the final score.

As per AZ, Bayern II had 79% ball possession, more than twice as many passes, and yet, surprisingly, they went home empty-handed. The defeat leaves the team in 11th place with 22 points. They will probably fall a few places before this weekend’s matchday is over.
