Bundesliga fans can watch the biggest match of the German league’s season live online when undefeated Bayern Munich faces a challenge from second-place Borussia Dortmund in a showdown that could set the course for the remainder of the Bundesliga season — even though the season is only in its eighth match week out of 34.
If the underdog Dortmund can pull out a victory against their arch-rivals, they will come within one point of Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga table, turning the league title race into, well, an actual race for once. But with Bayern’s total domination of German football this season, winning Sunday’s showdown is an uphill battle, to say the least for the visitors.
A Bayern victory puts the Munich club seven points clear of their rivals and opens a clear path for the Munich powerhouse to claim its fourth consecutive Bundesliga title.
The Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund fixture is dubbed “Der Klassiker,” in honor of the Spanish La Liga “El Clasico” that pits that country’s two top clubs, Real Madrid and Barcelona, against one another at least twice every season.
But to call Bayern Munich “dominant” so far in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga season would be a considerable understatement. Not only have the the defending champs won all seven of their matches so far, claiming all 21 possible points, they have scored a staggering 23 league goals while letting only three past the keeper.
