23 Sep Bayern Munich 7-0 VfL Bochum (Sep 23, 2023) Game Analysis – ESPN
Bayern Munich forward Harry Kane scored a hat trick in their 7-0 demolition of VfL Bochum on Saturday to take his league goal tally to seven and set a club record for most goals by a player in his first five Bundesliga matches.
Kane’s three goals put him above club great Gerd Meller, Miroslav Klose and Mario Mandzukic who all scored five times in their first five games.
The Bavarians, who beat Manchester United 4-3 in their Champions League opener on Wednesday, move up to 13 points in top spot from five Bundesliga games. Bayer Leverkusen, on 10, could join them if they beat Heidenheim on Sunday.
England captain Kane, who became the Bundesliga’s most expensive transfer ever when he joined the German champions this season for €100 million ($106.52m), struck his first goal after benefiting from a lucky bounce in the 13th minute.
The hosts quickly killed off the game with two more goals before the break.
Kane made sure of a club record when he scored with a 54th-minute penalty before Coman hit the woodwork on the hour.
Substitute Mathys Tel made it half a dozen in the 82nd minute before Kane’s clever flick in the 89th put an end to Bochum’s miserable afternoon.
