Bayern Munich, which missed Kim Min-jae for the 2023 Asian Cup of Asian Football Confederation, won the Bundesliga match after a three-week winter break with Harry Kane's 22nd goal in the league.
Munich beat Hoffenheim 3-0 in the 17th round of the 2023-24 Bundesliga at Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany on the 13th (Korea time).
Having won three consecutive games, Munich was closely trailing Leverkusen (42 points) with 13 wins, two draws and one loss (41 points). Hoffenheim (24 points), on the other hand, ranked seventh with no wins in three consecutive games (1 draw and two losses).
Kane, who scored his third goal and sealed the victory, scored his 22nd goal to lead second-place Seru Girasi (17 goals, Stuttgart) by five goals.
The match was held in memory of German soccer legend and Emperor Franz Beckenbauer, who died on the 7th at the age of 78 local time. Munich players wore uniforms with the words "Danke Franz" (Thank you, Franz).
Munich, which staged a wave of attacks, took the lead in the 18th minute with Jamal Musiala's first goal.
But in the 13th minute of the second half, Mussiara's shot hit the post, and Konrad Reimer missed a one-on-one chance with the goalkeeper.
Munich, which failed to score an additional goal, struggled with Hoffenheim's sharp counterattack. In the 19th minute of the second half, goalkeeper Neuer saved and blocked the goal, and a minute later, Maximilian Byer's shot hit the crossbar.
After overcoming the crisis, Munich scored an additional goal in the 25th minute of the second half with the help of Leroy.
Munich had a numerical advantage in the 29th minute of the second half with Hoffenheim's Grisha Froemel's exit, and Kane scored a key goal in the 45th minute of the second half with a powerful left-footed shot.
Meanwhile, Eric Dier, who recently left Tottenham Hotspur (England) for Munich, was not included in the roster.
