Harry Kane made a dazzling home debut for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, guiding his team to a resounding 3-1 victory against Augsburg. This defeat marked Augsburg’s 15th consecutive winless away game, underscoring Bayern’s dominance.
Bavarian giants Bayern, who had previously scored four against Werder Bremen, exploited Augsburg’s defensive vulnerabilities. Despite Augsburg showing promise on the counter, their chances were marred by Ermedin Demirović’s missed opportunity.
Bayern’s breakthrough came through fortunate circumstances, as a rebound off Felix Uduokhai followed Leroy Sané’s shot, putting them ahead. Minutes later, a handball in the box led to a penalty, confidently converted by Kane for his debut goal at Allianz Arena.
Kane, eager to add to his tally, narrowly missed from an angle. Augsburg struggled to contain Bayern’s pace, with Dahmen’s reflex save and Rexhbecaj’s block preventing further goals. An unlucky strike from Sané hit the post.
Kane completed his brace with a well-placed poke over Dahmen, courtesy of Alphonso Davies’ precise setup. Augsburg managed a late consolation goal through Demirović to finish 3-1.
Bayern’s victory solidifies their Bundesliga standing, with Kane’s performance hinting at a promising season ahead.
