Bayern are one win away from securing their 10th successive Salatschüssel, and they can achieve the feat by beating their main rivals, Dortmund. Having to watch their nemeses celebrate yet another league title doesn't bear thinking about for Marco Rose's men, especially as the Munich camp is on the brink of mutiny. Their last three league meetings have produced 16 goals, so read on as we explain how to watch a Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund live stream from anywhere.

Jeers rung out at the Allianz Arena as Bayern crashed out of the Champions League last week, while Julian Nagelsmann is at war with the fans and star man Robert Lewandowski is flirting with Europe's biggest clubs. 

The problem with plundering your rivals’ best players every season is that domestic dominance no longer cuts the mustard, which is what makes matters particularly frustrating for Dortmund, who are nine points off the pace with four games remaining.

Erling Haaland is back amongst the goals for the Schwarzgelben, who hit six last weekend, and should be looking to inflict maximum damage on a Bayern defence that has looked extremely badly organised of late.

Will the Paulaner flow in Munich, or will the home fans leave the Allianz with a bitter taste in their mouths? Here's how to watch a Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund live stream no matter where you are in the world. 

How to watch Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund from outside your country

If you're abroad and can't bear to miss out on watching your usual coverage of Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund live from your home country, you should bear in mind that many of the services and websites you normally use to watch German football are geo-blocked.

But don't sweat it. With the option of a VPN, you can tune into Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund as you normally would, no matter where you are in the world - it's really easy and perhaps most importantly, ultra-affordable.
