Harry Kane scored his first Bundesliga hat-trick to move to seven goals from five games in the German league as Bayern Munich surged to a 7-0 win over Bochum on Saturday.
Kane netted his third off a pass from Noussair Mazraoui in the 88th minute — but had to wait for a video review to check for a possible offside — to finish off Bayern’s biggest win since another 7-0 victory against the same opponents in August 2022.
Bayern’s rivals Borussia Dortmund and Leipzig both won their games 1-0 after struggling to break down stubborn opposition defences.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting got Bayern started when he scored in the fourth minute and it was all Bayern from then on. Kane got his first goal in the 13th when the ball took a deflection off defender Ivan Ordets and landed at his feet.
After goals from Matthijs de Ligt and Leroy Sane extended Bayern’s lead to 4-0, Kane scored again from the penalty spot in the 54th after Ordets handled the ball.
In another match Dortmund eked out a 1-0 win over Wolfsburg.
Athletic in 2nd spot
Athletic Bilbao defeated Alaves 2-0 in a Basque Country derby for their fourth Spanish league win of the season.
Iñaki Williams and Oihan Sancet scored a goal in each half for the visitors, who moved two points behind leader Real Madrid.
It was their third straight match without conceding, whose only loss came against Madrid in Round 1.
