Harry Kane showcased his remarkable scoring prowess by securing a sensational hat-trick as Bayern Munich dominated Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker, ultimately claiming a resounding 4-0 victory. In doing so, the English international established a new Bundesliga record for the most goals in a player’s first ten appearances, notching an impressive total of 15 goals during this span.
The match unfolded in a breathtaking manner as Bayern rapidly seized control at Signal Iduna Park. Dayot Upamecano opened the scoring within five minutes, expertly heading in a corner from Leroy Sane. Shortly after, Sane’s precision pass across the six-yard box allowed Kane to easily slot home, doubling Bayern’s lead in the ninth minute.
The second half continued to be dominated by Bayern, with Kingsley Coman delivering a pinpoint cross that Kane converted for his third goal of the match. In the final minutes, Kane completed his hat-trick with a powerful finish past Dortmund’s goalkeeper, Gregor Kobel. This remarkable feat marked the third occasion that the 30-year-old striker achieved a treble in Bayern’s colors since his transfer from Tottenham in August.
Following the impressive victory, Harry Kane emphasized the significance of the win for Thomas Tuchel’s squad, expressing his satisfaction with their performance. Kane stated, “It was a fantastic game all-around. The way we started the game, going two goals up, and our control of the match was excellent. In these intense derby fixtures, giving your all is essential, and we certainly did that today. Celebrating a 4-0 win in front of our traveling supporters is a special moment.”
This victory maintains Bayern Munich’s position in second place in the Bundesliga, just two points behind the leading Bayer Leverkusen, who secured a 3-2 victory over Hoffenheim. For Bayern, this result provides a significant boost following their unexpected exit from the DFB-Pokal at the hands of third-tier team FC Saarbrucken. The team remains determined in their quest for a 12th consecutive Bundesliga title, with upcoming matches against Galatasaray in the Champions League and Heidenheim at the Allianz Arena.
Harry Kane’s remarkable achievement of scoring three hat-tricks within his first ten Bundesliga games further solidifies his reputation as a prolific goal-scorer in the league.
