It was one of those evenings for Harry Kane. The Englishman has been outstanding since moving to Germany but he wasn’t able to get on the scoresheet on Tuesday night as Bayern Munich survived an early scare to beat FC Copenhagen 2-1 in their second Champions League game of the season.
Following a nip and tuck affair with Manchester United in their opening Group A fixture, the Bavarian giants had to dig deep once again to see off the gutsy Danes.
The first half produced little excitement with neither side managing to break the deadlock, however, ten minutes into the second stanza FC Copenhagen took the lead courtesy of a tidy brace from midfielder Lukas Lerager.
Bayern would respond quickly with Jamal Musiala wriggling free of his man to fire the ball into the back of the net from the edge of the box 12 minutes later.
The Bundesliga champions then poured on the pressure as they chased a winner.
Mathys Tel grabbed the all important goal when he latched onto a pass from assist king Thomas Muller in the 83rd minute, finishing from close range.
The goal came as a great relief for Bayern, who were unable to unlock their star striker all night after being marked out of the game by Copenhagen.
It comes as no surprise that Kane was targeted. The 29-year-old has been on fire for Bayern.
