Dortmund have managed to stay within touching distance of league leaders Bayern, grinding out wins in recent weeks without their talismanic star man Erling Braut Haaland.

The Norwegian star gave BVB a massive boost last weekend, with a shock return from injury as he played the final seven minutes of their 3-1 win over Wolfsburg, and is now set to start in today's crucial encounter.

Whether Haaland plays or not, Bayern come into this clash as unsurprising favourites, and should feel confident having already won on this ground once already this season in the DFL-Supercup, beating Marco Rose’s side by three goals to one.

Here's how to watch a Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Bundesliga live stream no matter where you are in the world. 


How to watch Bundesliga football from outside your country

If you're away from home and can't bear to miss out on today's big game in in Germany, don't worry. While you may initially encounter a problem watching your usual domestic live stream coverage in the form of geo-blocking, there's an easy solution to this common annoyance. 

It's called a VPN and it's a clever bit of software that relocates your device back to your country of origin - thereby allowing you to regain access to the services you normally use (and almost certainly pay for) back home.
