Goal machines Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland take centre-stage in Der Klassiker today for what is likely to be the final time, and the Polish marksman could sign off in style by firing Bayern to their 10th consecutive Bundesliga title. Unless Dortmund can crash their arch-rival's party. Make sure you know how to watch a Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund live stream online from anywhere in the world today.

Lewa starts alongside Thomas Müller and Serge Gnabry for the home side, who also welcome Kingsley Coman back to the starting XI after a spell in the physio room. Leroy Sané is also fit again, but is being kept in reserve on a ludicrously strong bench, alongside Marcel Sabitzer and Jamal Musiala. Emre Can partners Jude Bellingham in the Dortmund midfield, and the duo have a heavy workload both defensively and in attack, with key personnel ruled out through injury.

Just make sure to use a VPN for access (opens in new tab) if you're an Australian abroad. It's also available to those in the States on ESPN+ ($6.99/month). In the UK it's on Sky.

Despite five goals in six matches, Haaland has never tasted victory in this fixture, and the big Norwegian will be desperate to put that right before his apparent mega-money transfer this summer. He scored a brace in Dortmund's 6-1 drubbing of Wolfsburg last weekend, but teenage debutant Tom Rothe stole the show, his maiden senior goal lifting the club amid a terrible injury crisis that has robbed them of Mats Hummels, Axel Witsel and Thorgan Hazard, as well as first-choice keeper Gregor Kobel.

With unrest in the stands and in Munich's corridors of power after their disappointing Champions League exit, Julian Nagelsmann can't secure the league title fast enough. With Dortmund weakened by injury, this should be a happy occasion, but the prospect of Lewandowski's impending exit casts an enormous shadow on proceedings. 

Make sure you know how to watch a Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund live stream from anywhere. The match kicks off at 5.30pm BST at the Allianz Arena today, Saturday 23rd April 2022.
