Six games into the season, the Bundesliga is in full swing in Germany though we get our first installment of Der Klassiker today as Borussia Dortmund host champions Bayern Munich. Follow along with all of the action wherever you are with our Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich live stream guide.

Today's game sees the Bundesliga's top two sides face off in the first Klassiker action of the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign. Last season's two Klassiker meetings were important in sealing an eighth successive title for Bayern Munich. The first saw Dortmund thumped 4-0 in a game that really set the tone for the rest of the season, and the win in the subsequent meeting saw FCB move seven points clear of BVB in the title race.

Though this is their first league meeting, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich did meet in this season's traditional curtain-raising DFL-Supercup with the Bavarians coming out on top in that with a 3-2 win, a late Joshua Kimmich goal making the difference back in September.

With the two sides in such similar form — the only notable difference being Munich's slightly better Champions League group stage records — it's a tough one to call. The rival teams will be intent on taking home maximum points in a game that could help decide the title race come the end of the season so it's bound to be an entertaining game.
