Who would you start against Hamburg?

Bayern Munich are back in action this weekend in the Bundesliga with Hamburg coming to the Allianz Arena. This marks the beginning of a busy two week stretch for the Bavarians with five games in fourteen days.

There’s no reason to beat around the bush here. Bayern are thirty points ahead of Hamburg in the table, because Hamburg is not a good team. Anything other than three points will rightly be considered a failure.

Bayern will host Schalke midweek in the DFB Pokal, before a weekend road trip to stubborn FC Köln. Then, Bayern will travel to London for the second leg of their Champions League match against Arsenal followed by a weekend home match against Eintracht Frankfurt.

So, there could be some slight lineup juggling from Ancelotti against Hamburg, just to get some players prepped for the bigger match against Schalke in midweek. Franck Ribery is also ready to make a comeback, so is it time that the Frenchman returns to the field?

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