The Hinrunde of the 2016-17 Bundesliga will end with the biggest game of the season to date. Bayern Munich will host newly promoted RB Leipzig at the Allianz Arena in a match between two teams tied for first place.

Both Bayern and Leipzig have 36 points after the first 15 games of the season, and if either team is able to come away with a win, it would be a huge confidence boost heading into the winter break.

Barring any last minute injuries, the lineup that Carlo Ancelotti should play seems to be pretty straight forward. Bayern’s best eleven are ready to go, minus Jerome Boateng. It’s a team that picks itself.

We asked three of our writers to predict what lineup Ancelotti will play against Leipzig. (Carlo better pick our lineup.)
