Bayern Munich welcome Stuttgart to the Allianz Arena as Julian Nagelsmann's side look to sign off with a flourish at home in the Bundesliga.

Nagelsmann was less than pleased with his side's display in their 3-1 defeat to Mainz last weekend, just a week after securing their tenth successive title with a stellar victory over Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern's season has grinded to an anti-climax following their disappointing Champions League exit to Villarreal and the former RB Leipzig boss will be keen to restore optimism among the supporters with Bayern set to lift the Bundesliga trophy this weekend.

Here's how Bayern could line up this weekend.

Manuel Neuer (GK) - Likely to return to the side after he was given the afternoon off in Mainz last weekend.

Benjamin Pavard (CB) - His athleticism on the right-hand side of the backline allows Bayern to attack with purpose through the wing-backs.

Niklas Sule (CB) - Will depart for Borussia Dortmund this summer after penning a pre-contract deal earlier this season.

Lucas Hernandez (CB) - Calm and composed in possession, helping Bayern patiently build possession from the back.

Serge Gnabry (RWB) - Facilitates sustained pressure for Bayern with his direct running in a wing-back role.

Marcel Sabitzer (CM) - Endured a rocky start to life in Munich, but he is slowly getting to grips with the demands.

Joshua Kimmich (CM) - Knits everything together for Bayern in midfield, spraying passes long and short with complete accuracy.

Leon Goretzka (CM) - His physicality in midfield is crucial to Nagelsmann's high-energy approach without possession.

Alphonso Davies (LWB) - Recently returned after being diagnosed with a heart problem, with the 21-year-old slowly regaining his sharpness.

Thomas Muller (ST) - Missed the defeat at Mainz last weekend through illness and recently signed a new deal at the club.

Robert Lewandowski (ST) - On the scoresheet again last weekend, netting his 34th Bundesliga goal in just 32 matches this term.
