In his Bundesliga debut, Bayern Munich’s record signing Harry Kane scored and assisted a goal, leading the champions to a 4-0 win against Werder Bremen and a successful start to their league season on Friday.

In the 74th minute, Harry Kane scored after assisting Leroy Sane’s fourth-minute opener. Sane secured another goal in the 90th minute through an easy tap-in, and Mathys Tel extended the lead to 4-0 during stoppage time.

Reflecting on the match, Kane shared with reporters, “It was a positive evening. Although the game was challenging, our strong start with an early goal set the tone. In the second half, they made it tougher, but I managed to score the second goal, and our substitutes from the bench sealed the deal.”

Kane admitted to feeling a mix of nervousness and excitement, even though it wasn’t his first match for Bayern. “I had butterflies in my stomach,” he confessed. Bayern had experienced an unexpected 3-0 home defeat to RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup the previous week, during which Kane came on as a substitute in the second half following his transfer from Tottenham Hotspur.

However, on this Friday, Bayern displayed no intention of taking chances. They swiftly gained the upper hand as Kane’s assist sent Sane on a clear path to beat goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka.

Despite controlling the game and confining Werder to their own half for much of the first half, Bayern couldn’t increase their lead. Kane faced tight marking, and the visitors mostly attempted long-range shots.

At the start of the second half, Werder aimed to catch Bayern off guard, generating three consecutive chances in the opening four minutes. Nevertheless, the wake-up call spurred Bayern into action, with Kingsley Coman striking the post with a curling shot in the 59th minute and Kane forcing Pavlenka into a solid save two minutes later.

Securing their 11th consecutive league title in the previous season due to Borussia Dortmund’s stumble on the last matchday, Bayern Munich solidified their victory by having Harry Kane drive in their second goal.

Bayern had specifically acquired Kane for his exceptional scoring abilities, as they had grappled with goal scarcity since the departure of Robert Lewandowski the previous year.

As Werder’s energy waned, Leroy Sane notched his second goal of the evening, coordinating with Thomas Mueller in the penalty area. Substitute Mathys Tel then hammered in their fourth goal to neatly conclude the triumphant match.
