  • Bayern Munich’s season went from bad to worse after their latest defeat
  • Thomas Tuchel’s side let a two-goal lead slip against Heidenheim
  • Harry Kane hit a personal milestone as his club made unwanted history

Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane was dealt a familiar case of Deja Vu as he set a personal milestone with a goal on Saturday, April 6, while his side all but surrendered the Bundesliga title.

The Bavarians somehow let a two-goal lead slip as they were stunned by Heidenheim at the Voith-Arena to lose 3-2.

Kane gave his side the lead with a trademark finish in the 38th minute, as Serge Gnabry doubled his side’s lead at the stroke of halftime.

But typical of Bayern this season, their inconsistency and shakiness showed yet again as they conceded two goals in the space of a minute early in the second half to allow the home side back into the game.

Kevin Sessa was put through on goal and finished well to half the deficit, and barely a minute later Tim Kleindienst tapped in to level matters,

It went from bad to worse for the 11-time defending champions as Kleindienst found the net with 11 minutes of regular time to go to turn the game on its head.

Kane’s impressive milestone

For Harry Kane, the game will bore personal significance as his goal made him the first player in Europe’s top five leagues to be involved in 50 goals for his team, per Transfermarkt.

The England forward has 38 goals and 12 assists in all competitions for Bayern, who he joined last summer from Tottenham for £82million.

Despite his typical brilliance in front of goal, Kane’s prowess will surely not be enough to win him a maiden league title.

Bayern set unwanted history

Meanwhile, defeat to Heidenheim also had ramifications on Thomas Tuchel’s side, who find themselves on the wrong side of history.

Not only are they 16 points behind Bayer Leverkusen, this Bayern side lost to a newly-promoted side for the first time since 2000, according to talkSPORT.

Also, Tuchel’s side have lost five league games for the first time since the 2011/12 campaign.

Leverkusen could be crowned Bundesliga champions as early as next week, as they are now one win away from glory.

Tuchel concedes Bundesliga title

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Tuchel’s concession of the Bundesliga title after his side’s defeat to Borussia Dorrtmund.

After losing in the Der Klassiker, the former Chelsea boss congratulated Xabi Alonso’s side as he admitted the title race was “obviously” over.
