Harry Kane breaks two more records with hat-trick as Bayern hammer Mainz in 8-1 win

Bayern Munich star Harry Kane broke two more records with his hat-trick against relegation-threatened Mainz on Saturday.

Bayern Munich thrashed Mainz with an 8-1 home win in the Bundesliga as the champions cut the gap on leaders Bayer Leverkusen to seven points. Harry Kane scored his fourth hat-trick of the Bundesliga season. Leon Goretzka (two), Thomas Muller, Jamal Musiala, and Serge Gnabry also scored.

The England captain broke two Bundesliga records in Saturday’s match against Mainz. He becomes the first player to score four hat-tricks in his first year in the German top flight.

Kane also becomes the first player to score at least two goals in eight matches during his debut season in the Bundesliga. The previous best for a maiden campaign in the German top-flight was seven games, by Friedhelm Konietzka in 1963-64 and then by Toni Polster in 1993-94.

The former Tottenham star also got closer to Lewandowski’s record of 41 Bundesliga goals after taking his tally to 30 league goals for the season.

Kane’s most prolific season in his entire career was in the 2017-2018 season when he scored 41 goals in 48 matches. He now has scored 36 goals in just 34 matches across all competitions for Bayern.

Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen can move ten points clear at the top with a win over against Wolfsburg on Sunday.
