The Bundesliga is back!

After two weeks of mostly mind-numbing action (or non-action) on the internationals front, Bayern Munich will take the field once again on Saturday when they visit Eintracht Frankfurt.

It certainly has seemed that Carlo Ancelotti has settled into what his favorite lineup is with Bayern at this point in time. There will be some tweaks here and there due to the sheer size of the roster, but Ancelotti has already targeted his best eleven.

Still, Ancelotti really hasn’t had a full squad at his disposal, so it will be interesting to see what happens the day that happens. What we do know is that it’s unlikely, once again, that Arturo Vidal sees the field from the start due to traveling all the way back to Munich from South America.

We asked three of our writers to predict what lineup Ancelotti will play against Frankfurt.
