Bayern Munich successfully retained the Bundesliga title on Saturday in a fitting manner. The Bavarian club defeated their arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund at Allianz Arena to win the tenth consecutive league title.

The season is far from over for Rekordmeister as there are three more games left in the Bundesliga. In an ideal scenario, the German club should have been involved in the semi-final of the Champions League. However, a spirited performance from Villarreal knocked Die Roten from the European competitions.

Julian Nagelsmann will be breathing a sigh of relief after guiding the team to the Bundesliga title on Saturday. The German coach has endured a difficult second half of the season, but a Bundesliga win will give him an ideal platform to kick on from next season.

Die Roten will be looking to end the season strongly by winning the remaining three league games. Nagelsmann is keen on winning these three games, but he will be giving much-needed playing time to young and fringe players during the next three weeks. While talking to ESPN on Saturday, Nagelsmann namedropped a few players that could feature in the remaining league games.

"“It’s a chance now for our young players who didn’t get many minutes this season like Paul Wanner, Gabi Vidović, Stanišić. They can play more minutes now at the highest level without pressure.”"

Paul Wanner made his Bundesliga debut under Julian Nagelsmann at the start of Ruckrunde. The young attacking midfielder is tipped to become an important player for the first team in the future. It will be a massive boost for his development if he gets opportunities in the last three games.

Benjamin Pavard has been playing a lot of football in the past few weeks. He is the undisputed first-choice right-back under Nagelsmann this season. The German coach will be looking to give Pavard some rest and use the last three games to give Josip Stanisic some much-needed playing time. After a promising start to the season, the Croatian defender has endured frustration due to injury.

Along with these young players, fringe players such as Marc Roca and Marcel Sabitzer are also likely to start at least a couple of games in the next few weeks. Both midfielders face an uncertain future in Bavaria, but they will be hoping to end the season strongly with Rekordmeister.

Niklas Sule will be hoping to start all three games as he bids farewell to the Bavarian faithful. Corentin Tolisso may not get the opportunity to play for Die Roten one last time as he is currently sidelined due to injury. The next three games will surely see some interesting lineups for Bayern in terms of system and personnel.
