Bundesliga leaders and defending champs Bayern Munich host bitter rivals Borussia Dortmund in this season's second installment of Der Klassiker. Follow along with all of the action wherever you are with our Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund live stream guide.

Today's hosts Bayern Munich are chasing a record ninth consecutive Bundesliga title and currently sit at the top of the table.

Die Roten have, however, seen form slip somewhat in recent weeks with a shock 3-3 draw at Bundesliga strugglers Arminia and a defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt, one of only three losses this campaign.

Hans-Dieter Flick's side appeared unshaken by those results, though, getting back to winning ways against FC Köln in the league and trouncing Lazio of Serie A in the Champions League.

Dortmund are seemingly out of this season's title race already, currently sitting in fifth place and 15 points behind Der Klassiker rivals Bayern. Despite finishing as runners-up last term, Die Schwarzgelben have failed to replicate that form, ultimately leading to the sacking of head coach Lucien Favre back in December.

BVB are unbeaten in their last four league games, though, and have also notched a Champions League round of 16 first-leg win against La Liga's Sevilla so will come into today's big game with confidence.

The last time these two sides met in the league it was a closely fought match that ultimately went FCB's way in a 3-2 victory. Regardless of the result, it's set to be an entertaining game.
