Eintracht Braunschweig vs. Bayern Munich | Lineups and Gamethread

Hopefully, a visit to bottom-of-the-table Eintracht Braunschweig will snap Bayern Munich out of their funk.

Lennart Preiss

Bayern Munich last won in the Bundesliga on March 25. Yes, that was four matches ago. Yes, that was March 25. Yes, that was the match that clinched the Bundesliga for FCB. Since that match, Bayern have drawn once and lost twice, and while we understand that the league is already won, it's getting worrisome that the team has yet to really kick out of this funk.

Maybe the midweek Pokal Semifinal win over FC Kaiserslautern was the start of the "get out of the funk" phase, and Pep Guardiola's team really kicks it into an extra gear in this match. Let's hope they do.

Lineups

Bayern Munich

Claudio Pizarro

Franck Ribery - Mario Götze - Arjen Robben

Bastian Schweinsteiger - Pierre Hojbjerg

Philipp Lahm - Dante - Javi Martinez - Jerome Boateng

Lukas Raeder

Subs: Alessandro Schöpf, Benno Schmitz, Thomas Müller, Mitchel Weiser, Mario Mandzukic, Raif Husic

NOTE: It's hard to tell right now exactly what the formation will be, but I'm taking a stab at the 4-2-3-1 with the players in this position. Putting Lahm at left back, Boateng at right back, Martinez at center back, and Hojbjerg in the midfield makes the most sense to me.

Eintracht Braunschweig

Havard Nielsen - Dennis Kruppke

Kevin Kratz - Norman Theuerkauf - Mirko Boland - Jan Hochscheidt

Ken Reichel - Deniz Dogan - Matthias Henn - Omar Elabdellaoui

Daniel Davari

Subs: Benjamin Later, Orhan Ademi, Torsten Oehrl, Jonas Erwig-Drüppel, Marc Pfitzner, Marco Caligiuri, Mohamma Baghdadi
