Kane saved Bayern and Tuchel with a goal in extra time

Date:

Harry Kane rescued Bayern Munich and Thomas Tuchel today with a double that prevented the Bundesliga from being ruled out in favor of Bayer Leverkusen, leaders eight points clear with eleven games remaining.

The English striker opened the scoring and, more importantly, closed it in extra time. with his 27th goal in the German championship. A harsh outcome (2-1) for Leipzig, Real Madrid’s rivals in the Champions League round of 16, who did not deserve to lose but Kane made the difference.

Tuchel, ravaged by three consecutive defeats that would have forced him out of office at the end of the season and the casualties, had no choice but to put Joshua Kimmich at right back, position discovered by the German midfielder Pep Guardiola and on the rear axle, allowed Dayot Upamecano, he left Kim on the bench to bet Matthias de Ligt and Eric Dier.

Kane, in the post as soon as he starts

Bayern started well and in the 5th minute they had a good chance to score from a cross from the left of Raphael Guerreiro which Kane finished off with a diving header. Janis Blaswich, starter due to stomach injury Peter Gulacsi deflected the ball off the post there was a save and he was lucky to have it back in his hands.

After this occasion, the rest of the first half was evenly matched as both teams played with defensive caution. Bayern took no chances despite dominating quite a bit and Leipzig opted for controlled football, playing back and forth.with Xavi Simons or Dani Olmo finding the final pass.

Before the break Bayern threatened with a counterattack by Jamal Musiala who was all alone to Leroy Sané, but Blaswich held him perfectly on his way out. And Kane, on his second appearance, struck again with a forced overhead kick that didn’t faze the visiting goalkeeper.

After the break the decor changed. Leipzig seemed to take a step forward with three shots in a row, two shots by Amadou Haidara and Xavi Simons blocked by Manuel Neuer and a volley from Mohamed Simakan in a corner that was almost missed.


Musiala-Kane connection and English’s 26th goal

But Bayern hit right away thankfully on the connection between Jamal Musiala and Kane, this is Bayern’s main offensive resource. The German playmaker completed a counterattack with a quality pass to Kane, who controlled it and was left alone before beating Blaswich with a cross shot (56′). It was the English striker’s 26th league goal, leading outstanding scorer in the Bundesliga.

The goal forced Leipzig to continue thanks to Simons and, above all, Olmo, who stood out for his class but also for his defensive effort. Benjamin Sesko had two chances in a row but Neuer stopped them, andespecially the first one with a saving hand in a one on one.


Olmo helps and Goretzka deflects, but Kane decides

The Slovenian didn’t miss a third time, as he received a short shot from Olmo in the area and his shot, deflected by Leon Goretzka, took out Neuer (70′). Leipzig did not experience local harassment in the final period and even gave the feeling that they could have won if they pressed the accelerator, but in extra time they got a ball that Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting placed without much conviction and it crossed far from Blaswich’s Reach.

Never before in the Bundesliga has a team missed out on the title, with an eight-point lead at this point in the season, but for Bayern the victory was crucial as it stopped their bleeding streak of three consecutive defeats.
