U19s top Augsburg thanks to Batista-Meier
Oliver Batista-Meier scored a goal in each half to lead Bayern Munich U19s past Augsburg 2-0 over the weekend in the final match of 2019 in the A-Junioren Bundesliga Süd/Südwest.
In a big surprise, U17 player Jamal Musiala made the jump up to the U19s for this game, playing the entire second half. The 16 year old has been shining so far this year with the U17s so the additional run-out with the U19s means they see something in him.
Bayern XI: Schneller - Kehl, Daniliuc, Arrey-Mbi, Waidner - Tillman, Booth (83. Lawrence), Herrmann (69. Halbich) - Batista-Meier, Cuni (46. Musiala), Johansson (77. Timossi Andersson)
The win moves Bayern U19s up into sole possession of second place in the table. It’s an incredibly tight race at the top: Stuttgart 33 points, Bayern 32 points, Mainz 31 points, and Hoffenheim 30 points.
That was the final league match for Bayern U19s. They’ll return to the field in league play on February 2 against Kaiserslautern. In the meantime, they have one more match to play this week against Tottenham in the UEFA Youth League.
U17s split the points with Wehen Wiesbaden
After goals in the opening 28 minutes from Lucas Copado and Roman Reinelt, it looked like it would be an easy day at the office for Bayern Munich U17s; however, Wehen Wiesbaden would storm back, including a goal at the death, to force a draw.
With Bayern thinking they had Wiesbaden rocked from the early goals, Amin Farouk nabbed one back in the 33rd minute to make it close before halftime. Then, with time ticking away in the 80th minutes, Rafed Matmati banged home the equalizer to send Miroslav Klose home sad.
Bayern XI: Schenk – Reinelt, Morrison, Marusic (41. Fust), Janitzek – Brückner, Neziri – Aitamer (75. Vidovic), Wenig, Motika – Copado (80. Aydin)
