Heidenheim entered the match with determination, denying Thomas Tuchel’s side an easy ride. An early opportunity through Jan Schöppner showcased their intent, but Bayern gradually took control. Leroy Sané’s blocked volley marked the beginning of Bayern’s dominance, culminating in Kane’s opening goal. The historic goal, breaking Robert Lewandowski’s record, arrived just before halftime, courtesy of a Sané corner.
Heidenheim adopted a more aggressive stance in the second half, learning from a recent defeat against Darmstadt. Their approach limited Bayern’s chances, with Kane missing a crucial opportunity. Heidenheim capitalized on this, pulling one back through Kleindienst and swiftly equalizing with Beste’s precise finish. However, Bayern swiftly regained the lead as Raphael Guerreiro scored from distance. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting sealed the victory with a well-timed header, confirming Bayern’s deserved win.
The match featured significant moments, such as Aleksandar Pavlovic’s first competitive start, Bouna Sarr’s return since April 2021, and Serge Gnabry’s comeback after a September injury. Alphonso Davies was rested for the first time in the season. Kane set a new Bundesliga record with his 17th goal in 11 games, surpassing Lewandowski’s previous record. Sané joined the assist chart’s top spot with six, equaling RB Leipzig’s Xavi Simons. Bayern’s prolific scoring continued, reaching 42 goals in just 11 games, surpassing their own 2021/22 record of 40 goals.
