(All times EST)
Tuesday, May 26
If you’ve got a couple of free hours around lunch time on Tuesday, you’ve got to turn it over to FS1 at 12:30 p.m. to watch Der Klassiker between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. It’s the most important match of the season in regard to the title race; Bayern has a four-point lead atop the league table over Dortmund, while Dortmund has home-field advantage at Signal Iduna Park. It isn’t the only quality match of the day, though.
Following the conclusion of that game, fourth-place Bayer Leverkusen will take on sixth-place Wolfsburg in a game that could have major implications for European qualification. Also, 17-year-old American Ulysses Llanez is expected to make his debut, so be sure to turn it over to FS2 at 2:30 p.m. to catch that action.
If that doesn’t do it for you, fifth-place Borussia Monchengladbach will travel to face American youngster Josh Sargent and 17th place Werder Bremen, with one team fighting for a Champions League spot and the other fighting to avoid relegation. There’s also a clash between seventh-place Freiburg and 14th-place Eintracht Frankfurt, with both teams still in contention for the last Europa League qualification spot.
Wednesday, May 27
Wednesday’s fixtures may not be quite as exciting, but there’s still some quality games, starting with the 12:30 p.m. game between RB Leipzig and Hertha Berlin. Leipzig is coming off an impressive 5-0 win over Mainz on Sunday, but Hertha looked equally impressive in a 4-0 win over Union Berlin in the Berlin Derby.

Bayern Munich currently sits at the top of the table with 61 points, but it’s far from over. The Bavarians still have to face three of the other top five sides: at second-place Borussia Dortmund (57 points), at fourth-place Bayer Leverkusen (53 points) and at home against fifth-place Borussia Monchengladbach (52 points), so the title, as well as the fourth Champions League spot, is still up for grabs.
Towards the middle of the table is a battle for sixth-place to claim the last Europa League spot. Wolfsburg currently holds the position, but only nine points separates them from 13th-place Union Berlin, so it’s a tight contest.
At the bottom are Paderborn and Werder Bremen, though Bremen has a game in hand on 16th-place Fortuna Dusseldorf and only trails by three points. The team that finishes 16th at the end of the season plays in a relegation/promotion playoff with the third-place team in Bundesliga 2.
