It's not been a good Bundesliga season so far for Bayern Munich, as they rest in fourth in the table and are well and truly in crisis mode. Can second-place Dortmund capitalise on the behind the scenes drama at Der FCB? You can watch all of the action from this crucial clash by following our guide below to getting a Bayern vs Dortmund live stream - no matter where you are in the world.
Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund live stream - where and when
Today's game takes place at the Allianz Arena in Munich at 6.30pm CEST local time. That means a 5.30pm GMT kick-off time in the UK and a 12.30pm ET, 9.30am PT start in the US.
Expectations at Die Bayern are, of course, on a different level to most clubs, and the nature of last weekend's historic 5-1 capitulation to Eintracht Frankfurt required coach Niko Kovac to fall on his sword and resign.
While Bayern might be sightly off the pace in title race, it's unlikely they'll be anyone pointing the finger of blame at Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker is on a ridiculously good goal-scoring run having score in every Bundesliga and Champions League match this season. Interim coach Hansi Flick will be hoping the talismanic hitman will continue the run against an increasingly improving Dortmund side.
BVB come into the game off the back of a 3-0 win over the previously unbeaten Wolfsburg and a remarkable comeback in midweek to beat Inter Milan 3-2 at home in Europe.
There's an added boost for Dortmund ahead of today's clash, with Marco Reus all set to be fit to play after the skipper missed out on Wednesday's epic.
It's shaping up to be a fascinating encounter - check out our guide below on how to obtain a Bayern vs Dortmund live stream, regardless of where you are in the world.
