While Robert Lewandowski grapples with one of the driest goal-scoring spells in the last 12 years, Bayern Munich finds solace in the exceptional performance of their current top scorer, Harry Kane, acquired for 100 million euros. The English striker has lived up to the high expectations, amassing an impressive 19 goals in 15 matches for the German club, including two against Galatasaray in the Champions League, contributing to a 2-1 victory.
With four goals in the continental competition, Kane leads the Bundesliga’s goal-scoring charts, having found the net 15 times in 10 league games. In the 2023/24 season, no player in the major European leagues has surpassed Kane’s goal tally. The closest contenders are Guirassy of Stuttgart and Haaland of Manchester City.
Top goal-scorers in European leagues in 2023/24:
Harry Kane (Bayern Munich) – 19 goals in 15 games
Guirassy (Stuttgart) – 15 goals in 9 games
Haaland (Manchester City) – 15 goals in 17 games
Lautaro Martínez (Inter Milan) – 14 goals in 15 games
Bellingham (Real Madrid) – 13 goals in 14 games
Morata (Atlético Madrid) – 12 goals in 14 games
Mbappé (PSG) – 12 goals in 14 games
Kane is experiencing the best start to a season in his career, surpassing his own records from his 10 years at Tottenham. His performance stands out, especially when compared to Lewandowski’s initial stint at Bayern. The Polish striker, an icon for the club and its second-highest goal-scorer in history, managed only six goals in the first 15 games after leaving Borussia Dortmund.
Bayern Munich, with a perfect record in the Champions League, leads Group A and has already secured an early berth in the Round of 16. Despite setbacks in the German Supercup and an early exit in the German Cup, Thomas Tuchel’s team sits in second place in the Bundesliga, trailing Bayer Leverkusen.
