Bayern Munich are back in Bundesliga action this weekend with a trip to the nation’s capital. The Olympiastadion will be rocking when Bayern play Hertha Berlin. With RB Leipzig not set to play until Sunday, Bayern have the opportunity to push their lead at the top of the table by another three points.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side will be looking to follow up Wednesday’s slaughtering of Arsenal at the Allianz Arena with another big performance. The “will there be rotation” question will come up following the midweek Champions League match.

Certain areas on the field are ripe for a rotation, noticeably the midfield and the fullbacks. It’s very possible that Ancelotti turns to Juan Bernat and Rafinha to fill in for David Alaba and Philipp Lahm in this match.

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