After Leroy Sane’s attempt was parried into his path, Kane scored from close range to make it 3-1 overall.

Kane is hoping that the outcome can help Bayern turn around after an incredibly poor domestic campaign. It was an incredible comeback for Bayern.

For us, this evening is ideal. He declared, “It was a big game.”

“Obviously, we need to get better, but evenings like this have the power to completely alter the season. I’m really pleased of the boys; now we just need to maintain our current momentum.

“That was a pivotal point in our season. Everyone was observing us to see how we would react following the first leg.

“Hopefully we can use this as a turning point for the rest of the season.”

For the first time since 2011–12, Thomas Tuchel‘s team was going to be without a major title this season.

But before the former Chelsea manager departs at the end of the current campaign, Tuchel still has a chance to capture a seventh European championship with Bayern thanks to this victory.

The draw for the quarterfinals is scheduled for March 15.

To ensure his team’s season would not end with 101 days remaining before the start of Euro 2024, England captain Harry Kane produced a magnificent double.

Ivan Provedel of Lazio had previously denied him before he struck in the 38th minute following a brilliant manoeuvre featuring Muller and Raphael Guerreiro.

The atmosphere in the Allianz Arena was elevated by his 50th goal in European play, which was followed in first-half injury time by Muller’s glancing header following a rasping volley from Matthijs de Ligt.

Before Muller scored, Kane’s second sealed an outstanding victory.

33 Bundesliga and Champions League goals have been scored by the former Tottenham star since he moved to Germany for an original £86.4 million plus add-ons.

“As a striker, you’re judged on goals and assists, in big matches especially, in knockout stages like tonight,” Kane said.

“Being able to support the team boosts our confidence as a team and as individuals.

“I’m just going to carry on with my current endeavours. In terms of goals, the season has gone well for me thus far, but we know as a team that we can perform better.”
