Bayern Munich are still reeling from last weekend's Der Klassiker loss that slip further behind in the race for the Bundesliga title. But the Bavarians will hope to get some confidence and momentum back on side this weekend as they travel to Heidenheim in the Bundesliga.

The matchday 27 performance was largely one to forget as Borussia Dortmund claimed a 2-0 victory in Munich. It was the first time in ten years Borussia Dortmund were able to claim all three points in Bavaria. Thomas Tuchel's men looked largely outplayed and showed very little attacking vigor throughout the match. When the slim opportunities came, Bayern were unable to convert.

While the defeat to Borussia Dortmund left much to be desired, Tuchel will need to find a solution for the lack of urgency and get his squad back on track ahead of this weekend's trip to Heidenheim. With a Champions League quarterfinal first leg in London vs Arsenal looming, how will Bayern balance the need for a strong performance and rest?
