Bayern Munich II is entering a very important phase of season as it fights to stave off relegation.

Bayern Munich II has eight wins, 12 draws, and 15 losses and is sitting in 18th place of the table after yesterday’s 2-2 draw with MSV Duisburg. Bayern Munich II has just three games left and is two points away from the safe zone.

The young Bavarian squad needs to take care of its own business and hope for a little help as well.

“The yield is, of course, not enough for us. After the last few weeks, when we took few points, played bad games, and had some bad luck, we played a really good game (on Tuesday),” said Fiete Arp to Magenta Sport (as captured by Tz).

Bayern Munich II has an interesting slate of fixtures for the rest of the season, but the young Bavarians cannot afford to drop any of the matches at this point. Unterhaching (20th place), Munich 1860 (3rd place), and Hallescher (11th place) are the roadblocks on the way to the squad being able to avoid relegation.

“In this phase of the season, it doesn’t matter who we play against. Whether at home or away, whether it’s tactics — no one cares any more,” Arp said, who scored the game-tying goal against Duisburg. “It’s just about taking the points with you somehow. It’s about pulling ourselves together, getting our bums on the pitch and winning the games.”
