Picking the Best Potential Bayern Munich Lineup to Face Hertha Berlin on Saturday

​Following their wonderful performance against Arsenal on Wednesday night in the Champions League, Bayern Munich return to Bundesliga action as they face Hertha Berlin this Saturday afternoon.

​Germany's number one will be between the sticks for Bayern.

Mainly due to the fact that Jerome Boateng is still not fully fit, Ancelotti is likely to stick to the same back four that featured in midweek.


Philipp Lahm recently announced that he'll be retiring from professional football at the end of the season but given his performance against Arsenal, it's fair to say that he could comfortably play on for a few more years at the top level.

​Bayern are unlikely to change the same midfield that out-passed and outclassed Arsenal in midweek.


Arjen Robben was back to his dazzling best as he produced a trademark left-footed curler to open the scoring in midweek. Former Barcelona forward Thiago also shone at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday bagging himself a brace.


Chilean midfielder Vidal also deserves a mention as he scored a last minute winner in Bayern's league match last week against FC Ingolstadt 04.

Robert Lewandowski will lead the line​ for Bayern.


The Pole certainly had a match to remember in midweek. He was at fault for Arsenal's equaliser as he was the one who fouled Laurent Koscielny in the penalty area. 


He then redeemed himself in the second half, scoring with a header and then assisting another producing a delicious back-heel.


This weekend, he'll be looking to add to the 16 goals that he's already scored in the Bundesliga.
