Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga, with the “goal catcher” Harry Kane’s come-from-behind winning goal, has won three consecutive games and pulled the reins closely to chase the lead.
Munich beat Borussia Mönchengladbach 3-1 at home in the 20th round of the 2023-2024 German Bundesliga, which ended at Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany on the 4th (Korea time).
Munich, which has won three consecutive games, accumulated 50 points (16 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses) to beat Darmstadt 2-0 and trailed Leverkusen (16 wins, 4 draws, 52 points), which continued its unbeaten streak in the opening 20 games, by two points.
Munich sent Eric Dier and Matthijs Dericht, who were recently recruited from Tottenham, as “iron pillar” Kim Min-jae was sent to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup.
Munich, which gave up the first goal to Mönchengladbach’s Nico Elvedi in the 35th minute of the first half due to a pass mistake in the midfield, finished the first half 1-1 with Aleksandar Pavlovic’s equalizer in the 45th minute of the first half.
Munich scored a come-from-behind goal in the 25th minute of the second half. The main character was Kane.
When a cross from the left corner of the penalty area flowed into the net after hitting the goalkeeper’s hand, Kane quickly scored with his head from the front of the goal area to turn the game around. Kane scored the winning goal.
Kane scored his 24th goal in 20 regular league games and his 28th goal in 27 official matches this season (including 4 UEFA Champions League goals).
Kane, the top scorer in the regular league, also widened the gap with second-place Seru Girasi (17 goals) to seven goals.
Munich wrapped up the 3-1 victory in the 41st minute of the second half with a header wedge goal from defender Dericht, who participated in the attack in a free-kick situation.
