Kane brace gets Bayern back on track

Harry Kane's brace lifted Bayern Munich past RB Leipzig to return to winning ways after a three-game winless streak.
Harry Kane scored twice, including a late winner, as Bayern Munich beat RB Leipzig 2-1 at the Allianz Arena to end a three-match losing streak.

The win was a huge morale boost for the Bavarians after a tumultuous build-up to the game, during which the club announced that Thomas Tuchel will step down as head coach in the summer.

In a relatively quiet first half, Bayern created the better chances, but Harry Kane and Leroy Sane failed to convert their opportunities into goals.

However, Kane showed his class in the 56th minute when he was picked out by Jamal Musiala and drilled the ball home with his left foot.

Bayern's lead didn't last long, though, as Leipzig pushed for an equaliser and were rewarded for their efforts when Benjamin Sesko's shot hit Leon Goretzka and went in on 70 minutes.

The match appeared to be heading for a draw, but then Kane struck again in stoppage time, converting a low cross from substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting with his left foot.

The win keeps Bayern eight points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen at the top of the table.
