Bayern Munich II dropped three points against bottom-of-the-table Saturday in a 2-1 loss. Following two straight wins, Bayern II came into the match thinking about an easy win and were unable to take advantage of their opponents weaknesses.
“We didn’t manage to push our game through, the reasons for this are obvious. We were too inconsistent in all our actions, both in the game with the ball and on the defensive, ” head coach Holger Seitz said. “Only then, when we had our backs to the wall, did we call up the things that make a football game. That’s why I’m not at all satisfied. “
After a goalless first half, Bayern II were beaten back in an eleven minute span by two former Bayern II players. Maximilian Franzke and Raphael Obermaier scored in the 49th and 60th minutes to put Magdeburg up 2-0 heading into the last half hour of the match.
In the 79th minute, Fiete Arp was fouled in the penalty area by Dominik Ernst. Timo Kern stepped up and converted the spot kick to pull Bayern II back within one. Nothing else came from the match for Bayern II, and they settled for the 2-1 loss.
Bayern XI: Hoffmann - Waidner (86. Jastremski), Senkbeil, Lawrence, Vita, Stiller, Dantas (61. Rochelt), Kern - Kühn, Arp, Dajaku
Despite the loss, Bayern didn’t move from their 9th spot in the table. Their twelve points has them only nine behind leaders Saarbrücken.
Bayern’s next match is Sunday, November 7 against SV Meppel; however, Meppen’s match this weekend against Waldhof Mannheim was postponed due to a high COVID rate in the Meppen squad.
