The 2. Bundesliga is back, which brought the long-awaited season debut for Sarpreet Singh. It was also a big week for Vidovic, an OK week for Malik Tillman and Alexander Nübel, and a bad week for Janina Leitzig. Check out what all of Bayern Munich’s loanees did this week!
France - Ligue 1
Alexander Nübel is the only player on loan in Ligue 1.
Alexander Nübel - AS Monaco
Nübel started and played the full 90 minutes away to Marseille. He was credited with five saves, but he was also credited with an error that led to Marseille’s only goal on the night. Nübel’s performance was enough to get a road draw against one of their direct competitors in the table.
Monaco will host Auxerre on Wednesday and then travel to face Clermont Foot on Saturday — both in league play.
Scotland - Scottish Premiership
Malik Tillman is the only player on loan in the Scottish Premiership.
Malik Tillman - Rangers FC
After beating St Johnstone in the Scottish Cup last week, Rangers hosted them in league play. Tillman started and played 72 minutes. In his time on the field, Tillman only recorded one shot — which went wide of the goal — but he did have three key passes, creating chances for his teammates to shoot. Shortly before coming off, Tillman also received his fourth yellow card of the season for a bad foul.
Rangers will travel to Edinburgh to play Hearts on Wednesday and then will host Ross County on Saturday.
Netherlands - Eredivisie
There is one player on loan in the Dutch Eredivisie: Gabriel Vidovic.
Gabriel Vidovic – Vitesse
Vidovic started in both league games last week for Vitesse. On Wednesday, Vitesse hosted FC Twente. Down 1-0 early, Vidovic equalized with a close-range shot from a tight angle. Vitesse would go on to take the lead before conceding another goal and the match ended in a 2-2 draw.
On Saturday, Vitesse traveled to play SC Heerenveen. After conceding first again, Vitesse went on to win 3-1. Vidovic got the eventual winner shortly before halftime — making it two goals in as many matches! In both matches, Vidovic had 100% shot efficiency — putting five of five shots on target over the two matches.
Vitesse will take on FC Emmen on the road on Saturday.
Germany - 2. Bundesliga
There are three players on loan in the 2. Bundesliga: Sarpreet Singh, Bright Arrey-Mbi and Jamie Lawrence.
Sarpreet Singh - Jahn Regensburg
After a long battle with injury in the fall and a never-ending World Cup break for the 2. Bundesliga, Sarpreet Singh finally made his season debut as a 65th minute sub. Unfortunately, he was not able to help the 10-man Regensburg as they fell 2-0 at Darmstadt.
Singh will hope to get more time next week as Regensburg host Arminia Bielefeld.
Bright Arrey-Mbi – Hannover 96
Arrey-Mbi was left on the bench as an unused sub in Hannover’s match against 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

Saarbrücken will host Elversberg on Saturday.
Lenn Jastremski - Erzgebirge Aue
Jastremski was not in the 18-man squad for Aue’s 0-0 draw against Freiburg II.
