Galatasaray 1-3 Bayern Munich: Harry Kane scores and assists to extend German side’s lead in Group A24 October 2023
Harry Kane scored and assisted to help Bayern Munich claim victory at Galatasaray in the Champions League.
The England captain converted an easy tap-in after 73 minutes to give Bayern a 2-1 lead before assisting Jamal Musiala six minutes later.
In the first half, Argentine forward Mauro Icardi cancelled out Kingsley Coman's eighth-minute opener with an audacious Panenka penalty.
Victory extends Bayern's winning streak in Champions League group games to 16.
They maintain their lead at the top of Group A with three wins from three.
In an end-to-end encounter, Bayern Munich broke the deadlock when Musiala jumped over the ball with a clever dummy to let Leroy Sane's pass roll to Coman, who fired home from the edge of the area.
Galatasaray pushed forward in search of an equaliser and were awarded a penalty when Joshua Kimmich took out Icardi with a reckless sliding tackle in the box.
The striker was met with huge cheers from the home crowd at RAMS Park as he dinked his spot-kick over Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.
Icardi should have added a second for the Turkish side just before the break, but, despite finding himself unmarked, his shot was high and wide.
The hosts started the second half brightly and Kane cut a frustrated figure as his team-mates struggled to pick him out.
However, it did little to impact the former Tottenham striker's confidence as he attempted a daring backheel, which was deflected back into his path and resulted in a simple finish and his second Champions League goal for the German champions.
He was in the thick of the action again when he pulled a pass back to the penalty spot for Musiala to run on to and slot past Fernando Muslera.
A dejected Galatasaray thought they had scored deep in stoppage time but it was ruled out as Abdulkerim Bardakci was deemed to have used his arm to direct the ball goalward.
