It’s been almost an entire month since Bayern Munich last won a match, and now Carlo Ancelotti must get his team prepared to play in the UEFA Champions League. PSV Eindhoven visit the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, and Bayern need a good result to stay within touching distance of Atletico Madrid at the top of the table.

With the recent run of poor results, it will be interesting to see if Ancelotti decides to shake things up a bit with offense or defense. Could we see the insertion of Holger Badstuber or Rafinha in defense? What about a change of formation for the attacking front?

Whatever Ancelotti decides, he needs to figure out a way to get Bayern completely focused on the field. They trail in the Champions League group, and they only have a two point lead over RB Leipzig and FC Köln in the Bundesliga.

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