The Bundesliga is back ... and it’s almost kinda over. Because Schalke won their game yesterday, Bayern Munich can’t clinch the title just yet, but they can certainly bring it closer, with a win over RB Leipzig.

Jupp Heynckes fielded what was arguably an A-team for the Champions League game against Besiktas in midweek, so it’s likely that he might rest players this time around — especially with an international break looming over the horizon. Arjen Robben, Kingsley Coman, Thiago Alcantara, and Manuel Neuer will be unavailable for the game, while Corentin Tolisso is still doubtful. James Rodriguez is a likely candidate to start, but Jupp may also opt for Juan Bernat at the LW position, like he did a few weeks ago. RB Leipzig are not an easy team to beat, especially in their own stadium, but they will likely have fatigue problems due to fixture congestion in the Europa League.

It’s Bayern time.

  2. Refresh the page regularly to keep up with the discussion. One refresh every 55-60 seconds is ideal but if that’s too much then just try for one every five minutes and after every goal.
  3. The goal celebrations are for everyone to participate in. Even if you’re lagging behind the others, keep replying to the most recent call of the player’s name. Even if you missed the first call, just start from the second, and so on.
