Munich took a 2-0 lead with goals from Leroy Sane in the 28th minute and Serge Gnabry in the 32nd minute. Manchester United’s counterattack was also formidable. Manchester United trailed by one goal in the 4th minute of the second half when Rasmus Høirun scored a consolation goal. Hoe Irun scored his first goal since moving to Manchester United.
Afterwards, Munich extended the lead back to two points with Kane’s penalty kick goal in the 8th minute of the second half. Manchester United did not back down either. Manchester United made it 2-3 with Casemiro’s goal in the 43rd minute of the second half. For Munich, Matisse Tell scored an additional goal in the 47th minute of the second half, but Casemiro scored another goal for Manchester United in the 52nd minute of the second half. After a fierce battle, the game ended with Munich winning 4-3.
Kane was credited with winning this game. He passed a pass to Sane in the 28th minute of the first half, helping Sane score the opening goal. Sane’s shot went straight at the opposing goalkeeper Andre Onana, but Onana was unable to hit it properly, leading to a goal. In the 8th minute of the second half, he personally took a penalty kick resulting from Christian Eriksen’s handball foul and entered the net. It was Kane’s first Champions League goal for Munich.
Kane joined Munich in this summer’s transfer window from Tottenham Hotspur, where he played for 19 years. Munich, which was without a suitable striker after Robert Lewandowski transferred to FC Barcelona, invested 120 million euros (approximately 170.9 billion won), including options, in Kane. After joining Munich, Kane recorded 4 goals and 1 assist in 4 games in the Bundesliga.
Kane scored 5 goals and 3 assists in 19 games against Manchester United during his time at Tottenham. Considering that he scored 280 goals at Tottenham, it was a disappointing performance. Kane, who showed a weak performance against Manchester United, was able to shake off the ‘Manchester United jinx’ by scoring two attack points in the Champions League group stage.
