For Harry Kane (Bayern Munich), the Bundesliga was too easy. He scored 21 goals in 16 games, extending his streak to 10 consecutive 20-goal seasons.
Kane scored a brace in the 14th minute and another in the 44th minute to help Bayern Munich to a 4-2 home win over Heidenheim in the 11th round of the 2023/24 Bundesliga at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, on Nov. 11. Kane’s performance earned Bayern three points and moved them to nine points clear at the top of the table, ahead of Leverkusen, who have played one game less.
Once again, Kane started up front and led the attack. Alongside Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry in the Heidenheim goal, Kane opened the scoring in the 14th minute to give Munich the lead. Kane collected a ball from Sane on the counter-attack and found the top corner of the net with a right-footed shot from inside the box. It was his 16th goal in the league, moving him into sole possession of the league lead.
It was also his 20th goal of the season. With his 20th goal in just 16 Bundesliga games, he has now scored 20 goals in 10 consecutive seasons. In the 44th minute, he headed in a corner kick from Sane for his 17th goal of the league and 21st of the season.
Munich conceded two goals in quick succession in the second half to tie the game at 2-2, but back-to-back goals from Raphael Guerreiro and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting sealed the 4-2 victory.
Kane has now scored 20 or more goals in 10 consecutive seasons, dating back to 2014/15, according to soccer statistics company Squawka. “Kane has now scored 20 or more goals in each of the last 10 seasons,” Squawka said on social media. His 21 goals in Munich this season came in just 16 games.”
Kane scored 21 goals in the league alone after breaking into the first-team at Tottenham Hotspur in 2014/15. He added three League Cup goals and seven in the UEFA Europa League, bringing his season total to 31.
His goal-scoring prowess continued in 2015/16. He scored 25 goals in the league, two in the Europa League, and one in the FA Cup for a total of 28 goals. In 2016/17, he scored a career-high 35 goals, with 29 in the league, four in the FA Cup, and two in the Champions League, establishing himself as Tottenham’s undisputed leading scorer.
That wasn’t the end of it. In 2017/18, he broke his own record for goals in a season. He reached the 30-goal mark for the first time in the league, and with four FA Cup goals and seven Champions League goals, he finished the season with 41 goals. In 2018/19, despite missing a number of games due to injury, he scored a total of 24 goals for the season.
After scoring 24 goals again in 2019/20, Kane surpassed the 30-goal mark again in 2020/21 with 33 goals, followed by 27 goals in 2021/22. Last season, his last with Tottenham, he led the team with 32 goals.
During this time, Kane won the Premier League’s top scorer award three times (2015/16, 2016/17, 2020/21). His nine consecutive seasons of 20+ goals in the Premier League, considered the best league in the world, cemented his status as one of the world’s best strikers.
Despite his stellar individual record, Kane chose to part ways with Tottenham after failing to win a trophy. He hung up his Tottenham shirt for a Munich jersey in the summer transfer window.
The Bundesliga was certainly an easy transition for Kane. He was quiet on his debut in the DFL Super Cup against Leipzig, coming on as a second-half substitute, but has scored well over a goal per game since.
After a brilliant league debut with a goal and an assist in the Bundesliga opener against Werder Bremen, Kane followed that up with a two-goal outburst in the second round against Augsburg.
After adding another goal against Leverkusen, Kane produced his best performance since joining the club with three goals and two assists against Bochum. Facing Leipzig again in the league, Kane was up to the task, this time scoring a goal. Kane, who also scored against Mainz, recently scored hat tricks against Darmstadt and Borussia Dortmund, taking his tally to 15 goals in 10 league games. Kane is the first player to score 15 goals in the first 10 Bundesliga games since club legend Gerd Muller in 1968/69.
He was equally impressive in the Champions League. He scored a goal and an assist in a 4-3 win over Manchester United, then scored a goal and an assist away to Galatasaray in a 3-1 win, and then scored twice at home against Galatasaray to be the man of the match. In the Champions League, Kane has scored four goals in four games, averaging a goal per game. 토토사이트
He added two more goals against Heidenheim to take his tally to 17 goals in 11 league games. Kane has already surpassed last season’s top scorer, Nicklas Fühlkrug’s 16 goals. It took Fulkruk, then with Wolfsburg, 28 games to reach 16 goals.
According to bookmaker SoccerBase, “Kane has already scored more goals than the Bundesliga Golden Boot winner last season. And he’s only played 11 games,” highlighting Kane’s incredible goalscoring form.
