Bayern Munich will look to end the season with a first win in three Bundesliga games on Saturday afternoon, when they travel to Wolfsburg.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men have proven to have let loose a bit since securing a tenth successive league title with a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund last month, losing by the same score to Mainz and drawing 2-2 with Stuttgart in their previous two games. – Parading the Meisterschale around the Allianz Arena after the final result would make the final appearance seem utterly irrelevant.

A final day win, however, is sure to go down well and it’s definitely a possibility against a Wolfsburg side who are now unable to secure a top-half finish after securing Champions League qualification last season. However, two wins and a draw in their previous three Bundesliga fixtures, put them in a good position to enjoy a strong end to the season.

First-choice goalkeeper Koen Casteels missed the hosts’ 1-0 win at Cologne last time out and is unlikely to be fit to feature for this one, likely meaning another start for Pavao Pervan.

Those left in the treatment room for sure are Paulo Otavio, William and Luca Waldschmidt, while Sebastiaan Bornauw is a doubt.

Defender Jeremy Rousillon, however, looks poised to return to the side after missing out on a win last weekend.

An uncharacteristic red card for Kingsley Coman last time ruled out the blistering winger, meaning a start for Leroy Sane if the German has recovered from the illness that cost him his side’s draw last time out.

Elsewhere, Nagelsmann has only had to contend with the absences of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Bona Sarr with respective knee injuries, while Corentin Tolisso is close to recovering despite being doubtful for the final day.

While the German champions have nothing left to play for this season, allowing things to fall apart in a soggy fashion is simply not acceptable. And, against a team condemned to finish in a disappointing bottom half of the campaign, Die Roten are expected to end on a high.

Under-performance spells have been a common occurrence this calendar year for Bayern – but they never seem to last too long.

Prediction: Wolfsburg 1-3 Bayern Munich
