Was a Joshua Kimmich stunner what it took for Bayern Munich to take their eighth title on the trot? There are just five games remaining and Borussia Dortmund are still waiting for the Bavarians to blink. This weekend, BVB have home comforts against Hertha while Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich is shaping up to be a fascinating encounter.

A title-decider of yesteryear, the Saturday 6th June, 2.30pm, fixture at the BayArena sees a Leverkusen team, very much on the up, face something of an auld enemy in their late run for a Champions League berth. So many times the bridesmaid during the late 90s but never ever the bride, the fans would simply love to at least give a bloody nose to the team that pipped them to the title almost every time.

There are no injury concerns for Peter Bosz's side and only Coutinho is the only serious contender sidelined for Hansi Flick. Expect a full-blooded encounter.

Dortmund will have to keep their chins up and make no mistakes against mid-table Hertha. BVB's injury list remains long and distinguished with Erling Haaland a doubt.

Werder continue their great escape against sixth-placed Wolfsburg. Fellow strugglers Mainz and Dusseldorf face mid-table opposition, while all-but-down Paderborn travel to Leipzig to play matador to the Red Bulls.

It could be headed for a very interesting finish in Germany in 2020. Could Dortmund get revenge and edge out Munich on the final day?

Below we have all the information on how to catch the action throughout the remainder of the campaign, whether you want it on your TV, laptop, smartphone or tablet. So scroll down and enjoy one of the most exciting leagues in world football.

Watch a Bundesliga live stream from outside your country by using a VPN

You can scroll down to find out how to access Bundesliga live streams in the UK and USA, but if you're trying to access the match while stuck outside your country, this is still going to be a problem. Streams from abroad will be geo-blocked, meaning the service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access – even if you’re a national of that country.

So, you’ll need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to help you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

VPNs are as useful for banking as they are at trying to watch video content or access websites that people in your location are not supposed to do. So, whether you want to watch live football, enjoy another country’s Netflix library or just keep your browsing data private, then they’re well worth considering.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service and would recommend the following:

- ExpressVPN

You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

- NordVPN

Which comes in at as little as $2.99 (£2.29) per month and features 24/7 assistance

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
