Harry Kane makes history as Bayern Munich pummel Bochum

Bayern Munich star Harry Kane became the first player in the club’s history to score over six goals in his first five league games. The Englishman scored a hat-trick for the German outfit in their 7-0 spanking of Bochum.

Kane has hit the ground running since joining the German giants from Tottenham Hotspur this summer. He scored in UEFA Champions League debut for the club in midweek, as well.

Bayern needed only four minutes to open the scoring against Bochum, with Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting firing home a pass from Kingsley Coman.

Eight minutes later, Kane got his first of the night after a ricochet sent the ball into his path inside the box, and he stroked home his effort calmly to double his side’s lead.

Just one minute shy of the half-hour mark, Matthijs De Ligt added his name to the scoresheet with a thumping header following a corner from Joshua Kimmich.

Kane showed off his playmaking ability nine minutes later by threading a ball through to winger Leroy Sane to add his name to the scoresheet.

Kane scored his second of the day from the penalty spot in the 54th minute to take his league tally to six for the club.

With nine minutes left of the ninety, Kane turned provider once more, assisting 18-year-old Frenchman Mathys Tel to score his third league goal of the season and make it 6-0.

Kane completed his hat-trick with a fine finish following a cut-back from Noussair Mazraoui in the 88th minute, rounding off the scoring.

Harry Kane became the fourth English player in history to score a Bundesliga hat-trick, and the first since Jadon Sancho in 2020. He has also surpassed Gerd Muller and Robert Lewandowski for goals in their first five appearances for the club.
