Harry Kane leads way for goal involvements in this season’s Champions League

Harry Kane has continuously broke records in his debut season at Bayern Munich and the English forward now leads the way for most goal involvements in the 2023/24 Champions League.

While Bayern Munich may be struggling domestically with the club five points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen, Kane has certainly settled in to life in Bavaria with ease.

No player has more goal involvements in this season’s Champions League than Kane (four goals and three assists), while England’s top scorer is close to matching his record set in the 2017/18 season (nine).

Should Bayern Munich focus on the Champions League?

It’s now a crucial time for Bayern Munich and Thomas Tuchel. Despite their 3-0 defeat against leaders Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, club bosses backed Tuchel. The Rekordmeister now sit five points behind Xabi Alonso’s side, while they were far from their best at the weekend.

Bayern Munich are currently unbeaten in this season’s Champions League with five wins and a draw during the group stages. With a favourable, albeit difficult tie, against Lazio on Wednesday night, Tuchel’s side, just behind Real Madrid and Manchester City, remain the favourites to win this season’s competition.

There is the option that Der Rekordmeister put their full focus on winning the Champions League, considering Leverkusen are running away with the league title. It is an idea that could become more of a reality with Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen confirming the club’s desire to lift the trophy at the end of the campaign.
