Julian Nagelsmann will probably not experiment much at the end of the season in Wolfsburg. However, a homegrown player will definitely be in the starting XI.

Munich – The German championship is the FC Bayern been certain for several weeks, the away game in Wolfsburg is now on the agenda for Saturday. The record champions will probably rotate a bit on the last Bundesliga matchday, and some players will also play their last game for Munich on Saturday. The expected lineup for the final game of the season.

FC Bayern: Julian Nagelsmann gives Stanisic a starting eleven guarantee

In the Volkswagen Arena, Manuel Neuer will lead his team onto the pitch as captain. Coach Julian Nagelsmann left open all but one position for defending in front of the national keeper. As the head coach already announced at the press conference, becomes a right-back Josip Stanisic “start tomorrow and get his chance”. Alphonso Davies will probably cause a stir on the left.

The trainer made some changes in central defense recently, but Tanguy Nianzou and Dayot Upamecano didn’t make the most confident impression in the 2-2 draw against VfB Stuttgart. Lucas Hernandez could be a starting XI, the Frenchman could play alongside Niklas Süle, who will make his last appearance in a Bayern shirt on Saturday.

FC Bayern: Nagelsmann complains about two failures in central midfield

At the end of the season, the two problem children Corentin Tolisso and Marc Roca could have gotten some playing time. However, nothing will come of it, as Nagelsmann explained. “Both are sick, Marc has a flu and Coco has gastrointestinal problems. Neither of them will be going to Wolfsburg now,” said the man from Landsberg. That’s probably why the duo Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich will start in the Autostadt.

Leroy Sané returns to the team in attacking midfield after his illness-related absence against Stuttgart the three-game suspension Kingsley Coman sit out. Nagelsmann will decide by Saturday afternoon whether Sané or Jamal Musiala will start on the right wing, Serge Gnabry will probably start on the left. Behind the top – how could it be otherwise – Thomas Müller will cause unrest among the opponents.

FC Bayern: Nagelsmann continues to rely on Lewandowski despite rumors of a change

Despite all the noise, Nagelsmann relies on Robert Lewandowski, who “has trained very well and with commitment over the last two days,” up front. As confirmed by the head coach, becomes the Pole willing to emigrate “to be in the starting XI” in what may be his last assignment for Munich.

Expected line-up: Neuer – Stanisic, Süle, Hernandez, Davies – Kimmich, Goretzka – Gnabry, T. Müller, Sané – Lewandowski
