Bayern Munich II came back from a goal down twice to beat Wehen Wiesbaden on Sunday. The 4-2 victory over Wiesbaden is a big step forward for the young Bavarians, and their second win over a freshly relegated team from the 2.Bundesliga (Dynamo Dresden).
Gianluca Korte opened the scoring after just 9 minutes, smashing home a volley past Ron-Torben Hoffmann. Bayern II would strike back just after the hour mark. Chris Richards smashed the ball off the goal post with his head from an Angelo Stiller free kick. The rebound fell right in front of goal, and Timo Kern bagged his first goal of the match knocking in the ball.
Jakov Medic put Wiesbaden up 2-1 in the 39th minute, banging home another volley on a free kick. Their second lead, however, was short-lived. Just before halftime, Stiller lofted another cross into the penalty area into the box. Leon Dajaku flicked a header into the far corner of the box to send the two squads into the halftime break level.
Bayern II took their first lead of the match just four minutes into the second half. Stiller was fouled in the area, earning a penalty. Captain Kern stepped up and converted from the spot for the 3-2 lead.
In the 82nd minute of the match, Remy Vita iced the match for Bayern II. On a big counterattack, Nicolas Kühn saw his shot saved by the goalkeeper, but Vita was on hand to poke in the rebound for his second goal in consecutive matches.
Bayern XI: Hoffmann - Stanisic (46. Waidner), Lawrence, Richards, Vita - Stiller, Tiago Dantas (79. Zaiser), Kern (86. Rochelt) - Kühn, Arp, Dajaku
Back-to-back wins has Bayern on 12 points in 9th place in the table. The young Bavarians are two points off the leaders Hansa Rostock; however, Hansa has yet to play this weekend and will face FC Kaiserslautern on Monday.
On Saturday November 7, Bayern II will travel to face bottom-of-the-table Magdeburg. It’s a big match for Bayern II and gives them the opportunity to slide further up the table with three points that they should take.
