Harry Kane embarrassed on dark day for Bayern Munich as hunt for silverware hits snag | Football | Sport

Harry Kane and his Bayern Munich team-mates suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat on Saturday afternoon as Eintracht Frankfurt ran riot over Thomas Tuchel’s side. The striker ditched Tottenham for a move to Germany this summer to increase his chances of banking trophies, but Bayern are under pressure in the hunt for another Bundesliga title.

The Bavarian giants have topped the league at the end of every season since 2011/12 – a streak of 11 titles on the trot. That will undoubtedly have featured in Kane’s thinking when he cut ties with Spurs back in August to go in search of trophies.

However, Bayern face stiff competition this term in Bayer Leverkusen, who are top of the table and unbeaten after 13 games. Xabi Alonso’s side also boast a three-point advantage, and that could extend to six points if they win a crunch meeting with Stuttgart on Sunday.

Bayern’s quest to keep pace with Leverkusen was dealt an agonising blow at Frankfurt’s Deutsche Bank Park, where the hosts rattled in no fewer than five goals to leave Kane and co licking their wounds.
