It was a busy week for Bayern Munich loanees as we saw not only a myriad of league games, but also saw two Europa League knockout games and two league cup finals. We also saw multiple no-shows from the 3. Liga, Serie B, and the Austrian Bundesliga. Hopefully those out on loan in Austria are getting good some good experience elsewhere, because they are getting no playing time!
France - Ligue 1
Alexander Nübel is the only player on loan in Ligue 1.
Alexander Nübel - AS Monaco
A fairly hot streak in Ligue 1 and in the Europa League both came crashing down this week. After beating Bayer Leverkusen on the road 2-3, Leverkusen came to Monaco on Thursday and beat Nübel and company by the same score. After a scoreless extra time period, Leverkusen eliminated Monaco from the Europa League in penalty kicks.
AS Monaco then stayed home to host Nice in Ligue 1 play and it did not go much better. Nice put three goals past Nübel in the first half to propel the visitors to victory. Nübel had four saves on the day.
Monaco will travel to play bottom of the table Troyes on Sunday.
Scotland - Scottish Premiership
Malik Tillman is the only player on loan in the Scottish Premiership.
Malik Tillman - Rangers FC
Tillman started for Rangers in the Scottish League Cup final and played 66 minutes. Unfortunately there are not many individual statistics for the match — only cards, goals, and assets, of which Tillman had none. Goals on either side of the half from Celtic’s Furuhashi put them up 2-0. Rangers’ Morales pulled one back for Rangers, but it was not enough and Rangers fell to their bitter rivals.
