Bayern Munich scored 7 goals against Vfl Bochum to carry on to the top of the table with 13 points from the first 5 games of the season. Continuing a brilliant form, Harry Kane scored his first hattrick in the Bundesliga to extend his goal tally to seven in his first five games. Harry Kane made sure to take the match ball with him to serve as a reminder of this historic day at the Allianz Arena. No one had ever before scored seven goals in their first five league appearances for FC Bayern. The previous record of five goals in the first five league games was held jointly by three other players: Gerd Müller (1965), Miroslav Klose (2007) and Mario Mandžukić (2012).
Bochum may have had a plan, but it faded early on. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored in the fourth minute and it was all Bayern from then on. Kane got his first goal in the 13th when the ball took a deflection off Ivan Ordets and landed at his feet. After goals from Matthijs de Ligt and Leroy Sane extended Bayern's lead to 4-0, Kane scored again from the penalty spot in the 54th minute. Kane set up 18-year-old substitute Mathys Tel for Bayern's sixth goal in the 81st and finished off his hat trick seven minutes later with the help of Mazraoui's pass.
"I'm happy that I could help the team win with my goals. I feel comfortable here and I'm getting to know the team better and better. I hope to add a few more goals to the tally," Kane said after the match. He added, "We made it look easy with the way we played. The mentality we had going into the game. Everyone on our team was switched on and put in a top performance. We played fast and used our speed on the wings. That presented Bochum with big problems."
The win sent Bayern back to the top of the Bundesliga table a point ahead of three teams. Stuttgart defeated Darmstadt 3-1 on Friday and reached the second spot. Bayer Leverkusen can move level with Bayern on 13 points with a win over promoted Heidenheim on Sunday.
