Kane Breaks 60-Year Record, Musiala Shines For Bayern

Harry Kane stunned the football world by rewriting the record books with an unprecedented debut season goal haul, complemented by Jamal Musiala’s brace in Bayern Munich’s 5-2 triumph over Darmstadt on a Saturday clash.

Harry Kane’s impressive scoring spree since joining from Spurs in the summer has seen him surpass the legendary Uwe Seeler, who netted 30 goals for Hamburg in the 1963-64 season, with Kane boasting an impressive 31 goals in 26 league games.

Adding to his stellar performance, Musiala contributed an assist in the victory, ensuring Bayern Munich’s faint hopes of retaining the Bundesliga crown remain alive. The win sees them trailing Bayer Leverkusen by seven points, with Leverkusen set to face Freiburg on Sunday.

Bayern was caught off guard as Darmstadt seized the opportunity to break the deadlock, with Tim Skarke exploiting a lapse in concentration from Eric Dier to score, fueling the home side’s aspirations of a monumental upset against the mighty German champions.

Darmstadt rocked Bayern Munich with a stunning opener after 28 minutes, as Tim Skarke took advantage of a defensive blunder from Eric Dier to find the net, breathing life into the home side’s hopes of a fairy-tale upset against the formidable German champions.

Musiala added another midway through the second half when he collected a Thomas Mueller throw-in and danced through the box before shooting between the goalkeeper’s legs.

As he did last week, Serge Gnabry scored moments after coming off the bench to seal the win.

Bayern’s Mathys Tel and Darmstadt’s Oscar Vilhelmsson both scored in stoppage time.

In the German capital, Union Berlin continued their impressive home record, beating Werder Bremen 2-1 thanks to a commanding performance from US midfielder Brenden Aaronson.

Aaronson, who was surprisingly left out of the US squad this week, had a hand in two goals in three second-half minutes to give Union the upper hand.

The 23-year-old laid on Yorbe Vertessen’s 50th-minute goal, before creating and scoring one of his own with some superb dribbling shortly after.

Mitchell Weiser pulled one back for the visitors but Union held on, recording their fifth win in seven home matches under coach Nenad Bjelica.

Augsburg fought hard to snatch a 3-1 victory against Wolfsburg, despite falling behind initially. This win marks their fourth consecutive triumph in the league, placing them seventh in the standings.

Wolfsburg’s Patrick Wimmer found the net early, but his joy turned to despair as he was shown a red card just before half-time, leaving the field in tears after a last-man foul. Augsburg’s Arne Maier then capitalized on the resulting free-kick to level the score.

The spotlight fell on Kristijan Jakic in the second half as he bagged a double to secure the win, exacerbating the challenges for Niko Kovac’s Wolfsburg, who have managed just one victory in their last 15 encounters.

Mainz secured a crucial 2-0 victory at home against Bochum, reigniting their chances of escaping relegation. With this win, Mainz leapfrogged over Cologne, who suffered a heavy 5-1 defeat against Leipzig on Friday, now occupying the 16th position, the relegation playoff spot.

Heidenheim, in their inaugural top-tier campaign, held Borussia Moenchengladbach to a 1-1 draw at home, adding another valuable point to their tally and widening the gap to 10 points above the relegation places. Meanwhile, third-placed Stuttgart is set to visit local rivals Hoffenheim later on Saturday.
