How it happened

Bayern Munich raced out in front and opened the lead through Dayot Upamecano. The French defender lost Nico Schlotterbeck to score his first goal since December 2021. 

Their red-hot start continued with Kane applying the finishing touch to Leroy Sané’s pass after Leon Goretzka had fronted a blistering move forward in the ninth minute.

Donyell Malen had the best chance to renew hope for the hosts seconds before the break when Brandt’s ball narrowly evaded Reus, although the Dutchman’s attempt flew wide.

Bayern began the second half in the same fashion, and Kingsley Coman found Kane in the box with 18 minutes remaining, and the England captain made no mistake. 

Kane then latched onto Aleksandar Pavlović’s late ball through and wrapped up his third Bundesliga hat-trick in style as Bayern imperiously continued their unbeaten start to the Bundesliga campaign and remained within two points of table-toppers Bayer Leverkusen.
