Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig live stream: How to watch Bundesliga fixture online and on TV tonight

The race for the Bundesliga title isn’t quite over yet, but Borussia Dortmund don’t have any room for slip-ups if they want to keep at least the semblance of pressure on Bayern Munich. That makes this weekend a pivotal one, as they host RB Leipzig at Signal Iduna Park.

Both sides are expecting to be in the Champions League next season, but it’s far from certain the visitors will be so – they’ve had to come from quite a distance back under Domenico Tedesco and currently sit fourth in the table, only ahead of Freiburg on goal difference.

The two teams have an identical form record coming into this clash – four wins and two draws in the last six – but a dozen points separate them in the league, with just seven matches left to play.

Earlier in the season Christopher Nkunku scored one and assisted another as Leipzig – then under Jesse Marsch – picked up a win on home soil, but it proved to be the American’s last league victory in charge before the club opted to change.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.
