Who predicted the lineup that Bayern Munich has chosen to play against Wolfsburg? Sadly, nobody did, but that won’t stop us to celebrate the fact that there is finally some rotation in the squad!

Bayern Munich

The big news is that Kingsley Coman and Joshua Kimmich are in the starting lineup for Bayern in this potential Bundesliga championship clinching match. With Müller also in the lineup, this means that the trio of Xabi Alonso, Arturo Vidal, and Franck Ribery are rested. Ribery and Vidal are on the bench, while Alonso didn’t make the squad for this match.

Tom Starke, Douglas Costa, Rafinha, Juan Bernat, and Renato Sanches join them as substitutes. Hopefully, we’ll see Sanches get an extended run out in the second half of this one.


Looking at the Wolfsburg squad, there’s one name that will always and forever stand out: Mario Gomez. Let’s hope the world famous button isn’t working today.
