The Bundesliga's top two face off for the first time this season, in a game that almost always carries major title repercussions. Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich starts with both teams two points clear of the rest on 15 points, with five wins and a defeat apiece, and today's victor - if there is one - will take an early lead in the race for the Bundesliga title. Here's how to get a Dortmund vs Bayern Munich live stream and watch Der Klassiker online from anywhere you are in the world.
The kick-off time for Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich is scheduled for 5.30pm GMT today (Saturday, November 7), which is 12.30pm ET / 9.30am PT in the US. Full streaming and TV viewing details are listed below, and you can take your preferred coverage with you wherever you are by signing a good VPN .
The reigning champions undoubtedly have the stronger squad, but their attack and their defence look like they come from two different teams.
Bayern have conceded more goals than everyone else in the top half of the table, but with the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry, Lero Sane and Thomas Müller in their ranks they're always going to be capable of bailing their floundering backline out.
The stats are pretty ridiculous. Only Bayern have scored more than Dortmund's 13 in the Bundesliga this season, but it's not even close between the two clubs. FC Hollywood have hit the back of the net 24 times in six games.
However, Dortmund's defence is by far the tightest in the league, having only been breached twice so far this season. However, die Schwarzgelben's stopper face by far their toughest test of the season today.
Even with Mats Hummels in sparkling form, Lucien Favre won't be betting on another clean sheet, but he'll be licking his lips at the prospect of Erling Haaland and Thorgan Hazard facing up to Bayern's defence. Here's how to watch a Dortmund vs Bayern Munich live stream no matter where you are in the world.
