While his Premier League friends are preparing for Boxing Day, Harry Kane (Bayern Munich) is excited about the idea of taking a vacation.
“Harry Kane is looking forward to the winter break for the first time after many years in the Premier League,” German media outlet Spox reported on Jan. 21 (KST).
Bayern Munich earned a 2-1 away win over Wolfsburg in the 16th round of the 2023/24 Bundesliga on Sunday at the Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg, Germany, thanks to a Harry Kane goal.
The hosts took the lead in the 33rd minute when Jamal Moussaouiallah headed home a Thomas Muller cross.
Ten minutes later, Kane extended the lead with his second goal of the game, a tremendous strike from a long way out in front of the box after receiving a pass from Muller.
Despite conceding a late goal in first-half stoppage time, Munich managed to hold on for a 2-1 victory in the final match of 2023.
At the same time, Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen also won against Bochum to extend their tally to 42 points (13 wins, 3 draws), while Munich, who have played one game less, end the half in second place with 38 points (12 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss).
After the match against Wolfsburg, the Bavarians will head into the winter break for about three weeks.
The Bavarians’ next official match will be at home against Hoffenheim in round 17 on January 13, and the players will use the winter break to recharge their batteries after a grueling first half.
