The Bundesliga returns to competitive matches on Saturday, May 16th, and seven matches that weekend will be aired on television in the United States. You can find the TV schedule through your TV listings, but Steven Goff rounded them up. He made one correction on the tweet below: Union Berlin vs. Bayern Munich is on FS1 on Sunday.

If you don’t have cable, or at least expanded cable for some of these packages, you can find some free trials at Sling Blue, Hulu + Live TV, AT&T TV, Vidgo and fuboTV.

Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, and Borussia Monchengladbach are all in must-win situations. Bayern Munich holds a four-point lead on Dortmund, five on Leipzig, and six on Monchengladbach. Monchengladbach and Leverkusen are on the back end of the race for a UEFA Champions League bid, which is the more realistic scenario than winning the league outright over the final nine matches.
