Harry Kane - Bayern Munich - Champions League

Kane hopes Lazio win can be ‘turning point’ for Bayern

Harry Kane hopes Bayern Munich’s 3-0 win over Lazio can be the ‘turning point’ in the club’s campaign.

Bayern booked a place in the Champions League quarter-finals with a comfortable win over the Italian side at the Allianz Arena, overturning a first-leg defeat to progress to the last eight.

Having fallen 10 points behind Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga title race, Europe represents the likeliest avenue to silverware this season and Kane, who scored twice in the win, is hopeful the club’s comeback can turn around what has been a challenging campaign in Munich.


“It’s a perfect evening for us. It was a big game,” Kane said, as per the BBC.

“Of course we know we have to improve, but nights like this can really change the season. I’m really proud of the boys and we just have to keep this momentum going.

“It was a really important moment in our season. Everyone was looking at us, looking at how we were going to respond after the first leg.

“Hopefully we can use this as a turning point for the rest of the season.”

Kane has now scored 33 goals in 33 appearances since signing for Bayern from Tottenham last summer and the 30-year-old was delighted to impact a ‘big game’ for the Bavarians in Europe.

“As a striker, you’re judged on goals and assists, in big matches especially, in knockout stages like tonight,” Kane said.


“To be able to help the team is confidence-building for me, confidence for the team.

“I’m just going to keep trying to do what I’m doing. It’s been a good season so far for me in terms of goals, but as a team, we know we can do better.”
