Bayern Munich vs. Wolfsburg, 2016-17 Bundesliga: Projected Lineups, Preview

Let’s get a big win.

FC Bayern Muenchen v Club Atletico de Madrid - UEFA Champions League

Bayern Munich are back at action on Saturday with Wolfsburg venturing to the Allianz Arena. While the guests are flailing just above the relegation zone, Bayern have their eyes set on climbing back to the top of the league table.

Wolfsburg have only won once in their last five games. The club still hasn’t found any form under Valérien Ismaël since they fired Dieter Hecking. Just four points from the foot of the table, Wolfsburg won’t have high hopes of taking points in Munich.

There are some doubts as to which centerbacks Bayern will have to use. Carlo Ancelotti could find himself with all of Holger Badstuber, Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels, and Javi Martinez. However, Hummels and Boateng are both “probable”, and who really knows with Badstuber these days?

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

Predicted lineups


Ribery - Müller - Robben
Vidal - Thiago
Bernat - Alaba - Martinez - Rafinha


Ribery - Müller - Robben
Lahm - Vidal
Alaba - Hummels - Martinez - Kimmich


Ribery - Müller - Robben
Thiago - Vidal
Alaba - Martinez - Boateng - Lahm

Who do you think Carlo Ancelotti is going to start against Wolfsburg in Saturday’s Bundesliga match.
