Bayern Munich II used a two-goal performance from Gabriel Vidovic to boost to a 4-2 win over TSV Rain/Lech over the weekend. It was a big way to rebound from the 0-4 thrashing from SpVgg Bayreuth.

Armindo Sieb opened the scoring for Bayern II with a goal in the 24th minute. David Bauer equalized in the 33rd minute, but Vidovic grabbed his first goal of the match a few minutes later to give Bayern II the lead heading into halftime.

Fadhel Morou equalized for Rain/Lech just after halftime. Ten minutes later, Lucas Copado put Bayern II up 3-2, and they wouldn’t look back. In the 69th minute, Vidovic scored again to make it 4-2 and seal the win.

“Today we had to show a reaction. We did,” coach Martin Demichelis said. “We have to take our time to analyze the game again, but the better team won today.”
