Bayern Munich vs Stuttgart Full Match Reports
A double from Harry Kane propelled Bayern Munich to a resounding 3-0 victory over Stuttgart, marking their 69th Bundesliga triumph against this particular opponent, a feat unrivaled in league history.
The early minutes unfolded in Bayern’s favor when Atakan Karazor’s errant pass and Alexander Nübel’s subpar goalkeeping presented a gift. Just two minutes into their last home match before Christmas, Leroy Sané seized the opportunity, connecting with Thomas Müller’s pass to set up Kane for an uncomplicated finish.
Stuttgart appeared complicit in their own demise again in the 25th minute. Josha Vagnoman’s grabbing of the ball, under the belief he was fouled, led to a conceded free-kick. Although Kim Min-jae’s headed goal from the ensuing delivery was nullified due to a marginal offside call, it signaled Bayern’s continued threat.
Despite Stuttgart’s possession, Bayern issued warnings with Sané’s rapid counter and a strike that Nübel tipped wide. Another free-kick from Sané tested the goalkeeper. His best chance came when Müller, released by Kane, squared the ball, but Sané narrowly missed the target. In the half’s closing moments, Müller’s offside denied Bayern another goal.
Vagnoman’s foul on Alphonso Davies led to another free-kick, and Kim’s header from Pavlović’s delivery set up Kane’s 20th Bundesliga goal. Despite Sebastian Hoeneß’s triple change, Kim’s header off Anthony Rouault widened the hosts’ lead.
A potential hat-trick for Kane was thwarted by Maximilian Mittelstädt’s block, but Bayern swiftly recovered from their heaviest Bundesliga loss since 2000. They remain four points behind Bayer Leverkusen at the top with a game in hand. Stuttgart, despite an unbeaten run against Die Werkself and Borussia Dortmund, couldn’t extend it at the Allianz Arena.
