Kane nets historic hat-trick as Bayern put eight past Mainz

Harry Kane netted an historic hat-trick as Bayern Munich thrashed Mainz 8-1 at home to move seven points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen.

The England captain became the first player to net four hat-tricks in a debut Bundesliga season, while his 30 league goals so far this term equalled Uwe Seeler’s record for most goals in a debut Bundesliga campaign.

The ex-Tottenham striker also became the first player to score at least twice in eight different games in his first Bundesliga season.

Kane’s hat-trick saw him tap in to give Bayern a 13th-minute lead before finishing a low shot just before half-time to restore Bayern’s two-goal advantage.

The 30-year-old, who provided a wonderful assist for Jamal Musiala to fire in Bayern’s fifth, headed in his third in the 70th minute to score the home side’s seventh.

Leon Goretzka’s double and Thomas Muller’s goal helped Bayern hammer relegation-threatened Mainz to follow up Tuesday’s win over Lazio, which booked Bayern’s spot in the Champions League quarter-finals.

But Xabi Alonso’s unbeaten Bayer Leverkusen have the chance to restore their 10-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga when they host Wolfsburg on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
