So Bayern Munich have already won a record eighth straight Bundesliga title, but there are still two rounds of fixtures to play in Germany and plenty still to fight for.

Borussia Dortmund have secured their place in next season's UEFA Champions League, but there are still three teams battling for the final two top-four spots.

RB Leipzig are in third but have the most difficult fixture of the weekend as they host second-placed Dortmund, while Bayer Leverkusen travel to Hertha Berlin and Borussia Mönchengladbach are away to bottom-placed Paderborn.

Anybody down to Eintracht Frankfurt in ninth can still make the UEFA Europa League spots, too, and it isn't all over at the bottom.

Paderborn are certain to be relegated as the bottom club, but Werder Bremen and Fortuna Düsseldorf have it all to play for. With only a point between the pair, the next two fixtures could be the difference between guaranteed relegation and a play-off tie against whoever finishes third in the league below – destined to be Stuttgart, Hamburg or Heidenheim.

There's still an outside chance Mainz could be dragged into it as well – especially as they face Bremen on Saturday – but that would require two defeats paired with two victories for both the teams below them.

Unfortunately, you will have to miss some of the action as all matches are being played at the same time this weekend and next, but all are televised so you have your pick of the games.

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.
