Kane equals club record

Harry Kane FC Bayern celebration
Harry Kane has four goals in as many Bundesliga games.

Top marksmen like Harry Kane simply know where the goal is. With seven minutes on the clock, the England striker was in the right place at the right time to head in a Leroy Sane corner and give Bayern the lead. In doing so, he became the sixth player in history to score four goals across his first four Bundesliga appearances for the club, after Miroslav Klose, Paolo Guerrero, Jürgen Wegmann, Gerd Müller and Rainer Ohlhauser.

Another Kane milestone

All told, thanks in no small part to a prolific pre-Bayern scoring spree in England, Kane has now hit some 300 goals in 505 competitive appearances at senior club level.

Tel the super sub

Mathys Tel was introduced in the 70th minute against Leverkusen. Sixteen minutes later, Bayern were back in front. The teenage French talent showed all his attacking qualities to set up Leon Goretzka for 2-1, marking his seventh direct goal involvement as a substitute (six goals of his own, plus one assist). Since the start of last season, only Borussia Dortmund's Gio Reyna has contributed as many Bundesliga goals from the bench.

FC Bayern, Mathys Tel
Mathys Tel's individual brilliance set Bayern on course for what they thought was going to be a late win.

Goretzka's favourite opposition

Thanks to Tel, Goretzka was able to end a barren spell stretching back 20 Bundesliga games to early November 2022 and a goal at home to Werder Bremen. Perhaps it was no surprise that he managed to do so against Leverkusen: the Germany international has been involved in more Bundesliga goals in meetings with Die Werkself than any team he's faced (five, plus six assists).

Ton-up for Sané

Wing wizard Sané had more than his corner-kick delivery that led to Kane's goal to celebrate. The game also represented the 28-year-old's 100th Bundesliga appearance as a Bayern player.
