With the Champions League behind us, Bayern Munich look to clinch the Bundesliga on Sunday with a win over RB Leipzig.

Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes will have a puzzle to sort out, as he fielded arguably his best XI on Wednesday, leaving him very few options if he wants to go for the jugular. Thiago Alcantara is expected to be out, having sustained a foot injury against Besiktas. Corentin Tolisso will also be unavailable due to an injury he sustained against Hamburg. Along with them, both Manuel Neuer and Kingsley Coman remain sidelined with long-term injuries.

It is unclear whether Arjen Robben will be ready to start. The Dutch winger was kept out of the team on Wednesday by a pinched nerve, and Jupp Heynckes said in his press conference that he was still experiencing some discomfort. Apart from that, Bayern shouldn’t have any other missing players — but you know how it is with the German champions.

Here’s how we think the team will line up:
