Bayern Munich v RB Leipzig live – Bundesliga latest as Harry Kane brace gives Bayern Munich crucial win over RB Leipzig


In the first fixture after it was announced that Thomas Tuchel would leave the club at the end of the season Bayern Munich secure a crucial 2-1 win over RB Leipzig thanks to Harry Kane brace.

The England captain’s late strike snatched all three points for the Bavarian giants cutting the deficit to table topping Leverkusen to eight points. Meanwhile Leipzig remain in fifth just one point off the Champions League places.

The hosts had the better of a largely timid first half with Harry Kane hitting the post from a header while Leroy Sane squandered a golden chance as he attempted to round the goalkeeper. Leipzig defended well throughout the first period but offered little threat to Manuel Neuers goal.

However, the second half was a much different affair as Leipzig looked the better side and threatened to take the lead on multiple occasions. Yet, it was Kane who broke the deadlock with a typical close range instinctive finish.

Leipzig were not done though and continued to pile the pressure on and the eventually got their reward with a heavily deflected equaliser from Benajmin Sesko. Just as hope seemed lost for the hosts Kane stepped up again to snatch the game from Leipzig with a crisp half volley into the bottom.

The winner took his tally to 27 in the Bundesliga this season and gives Bayern Munich an improbable but not impossible mountain to climb in this title race.
