Harry Kane is on fire again!

Bayern Munich Harry Kane Bundesliga

England star saves Bayern with late winner against RB Leipzig to give Thomas Tuchel’s team hope of catching Bayer Leverkusen in Bundesliga title race.

Kane came the closest for the Bavarians in the first half, seeing a free header denied by an acrobatic stop. He didn’t miss in the second half, creating space inside the box before lashing a left-footed effort into the bottom corner. But Leipzig battled their way back, Sesko bagging the equaliser with 20 minutes to play. Kane had the last laugh, though, guiding home a fine finish in second half stoppage time.

THE MVP

It hasn’t been an easy few weeks for Kane. The English striker was toothless against first Leverkusen, then Lazio, going missing in the Bavarians’ biggest games of the season. And although he scored in a losing effort against Bochum last week, he failed to convince. On Saturday, he turned in a far more convincing performance. He was unlucky not to open the scoring after five minutes and took first his goal well when the moment came. The second was even better – a fine left footed finish. A welcome return to form.
