Here’s how to get a Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich live stream and watch the Bundesliga fixture from anywhere in the world today.
Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich live stream
This evening’s game takes place behind closed doors at Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park, or the Westfalenstadion. Kick-off is at at 6.30pm local time (CEST), which is a 5.30pm BST start in the UK and 12.30pm ET / 9.30am PT in the US – where Fox Sports provides coverage and can be streamed as part of a FREE 1-week Hulu trial in most of the country.
Second-placed Dortmund have managed to keep the heat on leaders Bayern with six straight wins and nine victories from their last 10 – their latest coming on Saturday with a 0-2 victory thanks to goals from Raphael Guerreiro and Achraf Hakimi.
The win saw Mats Hummels pick up a knock, however, which makes him a doubt for tonight’s crucial clash. Jadon Sancho is in contention for a starting spot after his cameo from the bench against Wolfsburg saw him pick up an assist for Hakimi’s winner.
On paper, Bayern’s 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend looks like another straightforward win for the title holders, but boss Hans-Dieter Flick will have been concerned by how his side allowed their opponents to get right back into the game when Bayern were leading 3-0.
A win tonight for the visitors would open up a potentially unassailable 7-point lead over Dortmund, but they may have to make do without key players in order to do so, with Thiago and Serge Gnabry both struggling for fitness
