Here’s your viewer’s guide to what you’ll see on TV and online this weekend.
Friday, 2:30 p.m. (Fox Sports 2, Fox Deportes)
Mönchengladbach’s acts of solidarity with protests over the police killing of George Floyd went beyond star forward Marcus Thuram taking a knee after scoring his first of two goals last Sunday.
“He got to the point,” manager Marco Rose told reporters in Germany after the game. “He made a sign against racism, one we all completely support, of course. I believe that everyone fully supports it, that everyone has the same thoughts he does.”
German soccer’s governing body said it would not punish any players for on-field protests.
Thuram now has four goals in four games, and his team sits in fourth place — the last UEFA Champions League spot in the standings.
Saturday, 9:30 a.m. (Fox Sports 1, Fox Deportes)
Leverkusen enter the weekend tied on points with Mönchengladbach, but they might not end the weekend that way. Bayern have won all four of their games since the restart by a combined total of 13-2, including a 5-0 rout of Fortuna Düsseldorf last Saturday. Canadian left back Alphonso Davies has played a big role, adding two goals and seven chances created to his defensive work.

Saturday, 12:30 p.m. (Fox Sports 2, UniMás, TUDN)
Gio Reyna has been a second-half substitute in Dortmund’s last three games. It’s good that he’s playing regularly, but the wait continues for the 17-year-old American creator to get his first Bundesliga start.
Sunday, 7:30 a.m. (Fox Sports 1, Fox Deportes)
Bremen seem doomed to relegation at this point, which is too bad for American forward Josh Sargent. He’s been playing well lately, though he hasn’t scored a goal since the season resumed. In this game, he might run into Wolfsburg centerback and U.S. national team colleague John Brooks.
Sunday, 9:30 a.m. (Fox Sports 1, TUDN)
Schalke are a mess right now, with four straight losses, including at home to Bremen last Saturday. In 10th place with 37 points, they aren’t totally out of the Europa League race yet, but this game might be a must-win. If the skid continues, manager David Wagner — a Germany native who played for the U.S. national team in the ’90s — might land on the hot seat.
Sunday, noon (Fox Sports 1, Fox Deportes)
