For the second consecutive match, Bayern Munich II conceded a goal in stoppage time and lost. This week, a 2-0 loss to Magdeburg is Bayern II’s means that Bayern II only take three points out of a possible nine in three straight home matches played over a week’s time.

“Overall, we definitely didn’t do enough of our possession”, manager Holger Seitz said. “Those are extremely bitter moments, like against Verl we gave up a goal again at the final whistle. “

After a first half in which Bayern II mostly had the better opportunities, Magdeburg opened the scoring just before half time. Baris Atik brought down a cross and finished into the corner for the 1-0 lead.

The second half was a near-carbon copy of the first half, with Bayern II generating the majority of the best chances and Magdeburg pipping a goal at the very last minute. This time, Jürgen Gjasula converted a penalty kick in stoppage time to make it 2-0 and end any hope of a Bayern II comeback.

Bayern II remain on 33 points after 28 games and are six points clear of the relegation zone.

With their next two games on the schedule against teams either level with them are in the relegation zone. Meppen, the next opponent, has 33 points like Bayern II, and Lübeck is bottom of the table on 24 points.
