A Der Klassiker with title implications in Germany leads the week in sports, joined by NASCAR heading to one of its most famous tracks, and replays of star athletes hosting Saturday Night Live. On B/R Live, it's Real Madrid week, with plenty of Champions League matches to watch from the winningest team in European Cup history.

(all times ET)

Bundesliga Showdown

Working to complete the season as quickly as possible, Germany's top domestic soccer league will play matches on five of the next six days, including a huge matchup this afternoon between the two clubs at the top of the table.     



Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich, 12:30 p.m. on FS1

Bayern leads Dortmund by 4 points and can take a huge step to its eighth Bundesliga title in a row with a win this afternoon. Dortmund was the last team not named Bayern to win the league, all the way back in 2012. In their first meeting this season, Bayern ran Dortmund off the pitch during a 4-0 November rout in Munich. With only seven matches left to play, this result could either start or end the title race.
