Kane Breaks New Champions League Record in Thrilling Draw Between Bayern and Real Madrid

Harry Kane made history by being the first English player to contribute to 11 goals in a single Champions League campaign, achieved by scoring against Real Madrid.

Furthermore, Bayern Munich played a thrilling 2-2 draw with Real Madrid in the semi-final first leg of the Champions League, where Harry Kane established a new record in the tournament.

Kane scored a penalty to put Bayern ahead at 2-1 early in the second half, shortly after Leroy Sane had equalized in a spectacular fashion.

With this successful spot kick, Kane became the inaugural English player to directly impact 11 goals in one Champions League season.

Notably, Kane shares the top scorer title in Europe’s major leagues with Kylian Mbappe, boasting a total of 43 goals and 11 assists this season.

Vinicius Junior was the scorer for both of Madrid’s goals. His first goal arrived in the 24th minute, receiving a beautiful through ball from Toni Kroos.

Kroos, facing his former team, completed 15 significant passes in the first half, surpassing all other players on the field.

Vinicius’ second goal was a result of a penalty caused by Kim Min-jae’s foul on Rodrygo inside Bayern’s box.

Vinicius has been involved in 31 goals since the start of the 2021-22 season, more than any other player during that time.

Jude Bellingham’s impact in the game was limited, with only one chance created and no shots taken during his 32nd appearance in the Champions League.

Bellingham joins Cesc Fabregas, Iker Casillas, and Roque Santa Cruz as one of the players with the most Champions League appearances before turning 21.

On the flip side, Muller celebrated his 150th Champions League appearance for Bayern, becoming the third player in history to achieve this milestone for a single club in the competition, following Xavi and Casillas.
