Behind Harry Kane celebrating

HARRY Kane’s goal-scoring prowess was on full display as Bayern Munich decimated Mainz 8-1 in a thrilling Bundesliga encounter, keeping their title hopes alive in the process.

The England captain’s sensational hat-trick not only propelled his side to victory but also etched his name into the Bundesliga record books.

Bayern Munich, buoyed by their recent Champions League progression, wasted no time in asserting their dominance.

Kane opened the floodgates by converting a precise pass from Jamal Musiala, setting the tone for an exhilarating performance.

The home side’s blistering start continued as Leon Goretzka found the net just seven minutes later, capitalizing on a quick free-kick.

Mainz momentarily rallied when Nadiem Amiri unleashed a thunderous strike from distance, momentarily narrowing the deficit.

However, their hopes were dashed as Kane struck again, showcasing his clinical finishing with a well-taken goal from Goretzka’s delivery.

As the second half commenced, Bayern’s onslaught persisted. Thomas Muller extended the lead with a simple tap-in, courtesy of Musiala’s pinpoint cross.

The return of Serge Gnabry from injury added further flair to Bayern’s attacking display, as he cheekily backheeled a Goretzka cross to make it six.

Kane completed his hat-trick in style, nodding home from a corner to seal a remarkable individual performance.

Not to be outdone, Goretzka capped off his stellar outing with a goal in stoppage time, securing his brace and putting the finishing touches on a commanding victory.

For Kane, this match proved historic as he shattered records in his debut Bundesliga season. His hat-trick propelled him to an astonishing 30 goals, a feat unmatched in the league’s history.

Moreover, Kane’s prolific form saw him become the first player to score at least twice in eight different games in his maiden Bundesliga campaign, equalling Uwe Seeler’s record for most goals in such a season.

The result sees Bayern Munich close the gap on league leaders Bayer Leverkusen to just seven points, intensifying the title race as the season progresses.

With Kane leading the charge, Bayern’s aspirations for domestic glory remain firmly within reach as they continue their pursuit of Bundesliga success.
