Bayern Munich II held on late to pick up a point against FV Illertissen on Saturday after a 1-1 draw. Despite the two dropped points, Bayern II will stay alone at the top of the table for at least another week.
The match featured the Bayern II debut this season for Torben Rhein who had been training with the first team this summer. Lukas Schneller and Maximilian Welzmüller also returned to the squad after injuries.
Oliver Batista Meier converted a penalty kick for Bayern II in the 15th minute for his fourth goal of the season. Following halftime, captain Nicolas Feldhahn put his header off the crossbar, but Bayern II were unable to find a second goal. Unfortunately, in the 76th minute, Illertissen found the equalizer through Semir Telalovic.
Bayern XI: Mayer - Mosandl (3. Vita - 90. Janitzek), Feldhahn, Lawrence, Brückner - Rhein, Metu (80. Jastremski), Kern - Motika, Sieb, Batista-Meier
For now, Bayern II remain three points clear at the top of the Regionalliga Bayern table. SpVgg are four points back with a game in hand since they participated in the DFB Pokal First Round this weekend.
Bayern II don’t have a midweek game this week, but they will have one next week. Their upcoming schedule is as follows: Friday August 13 against FC Pipinsried, Tuesday August 17 away to SV Schalding-Heining, and Friday August 20 against Unterhaching.
