Harry Kane completed back-to-back hat-tricks for Bayern Munich as he fired in an incredible treble in their 4-0 Der Klassiker victory over Borussia Dortmund.
The former Tottenham striker has enjoyed a sensational start since his £100million move to Germany and came into this game off the back of another hat-trick in their last game – an 8-0 win over Darmstadt.
But Kane showed no signs of slowing down as he scored with just nine minutes gone to cap off a brilliant counter attack, before slotting home his second in the 72nd minute. He then easily smashed in his third in the dying minutes of stoppage time.
He now has 15 Bundesliga goals for the season in just ten games – making him the first ever player to do so in the same time frame – and another hat-trick means he has now secured three trebles since joining the club having also secured one in a 7-0 win against Bochum in September.
Kane was the undoubted star of the show as Bayern romped to a confident victory over their rivals to open up a five point gap between the two teams.

Der Klassiker is the biggest game in German football but Bayern made it look like just another game after racing into a quick two-goal lead inside ten minutes.
With just four minutes on the clock, centre-back Dayot Upamecano – his first game back from injury after nearly a month out – headed the German champions in front.
Just five minutes later Kane, fresh off a hat-trick and a goal from his own half in an 8-0 win over Darmstadt in his last start, tapped home to round off a superb counter attack led by Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sane – who had started the move with a brilliant flick to his midfield team-mate before charging down the flank.
Goretzka surged forwards before finding Sane again – and the ex-Man City man had the easy task of slipping the ball across to the feet of Kane. The England captain could make no mistake as he bagged his 13th goal of the Bundesliga season.

For Kane’s second, Kingsley Coman played a glorious one two before providing a simple square ball for their star striker to put away.
With the game closing out, Kane grabbed his treble for the second straight game. Dortmund looked weary with tired legs as he pounced in a loose ball and the home side’s defence appeared all at sea.
Kane surged forwards with the ball – only goalkeeper Gregor Kobel to beat. He fired his shot low into the bottom left hand corner to ensure an incredible day at the office for himself yet again.
He was left on the bench for Bayern’s last game in the German Cup – which saw them stunned by third-tier opposition Saarbrucken, who won 2-1.
His three strikes against Dortmund means he has now netted in each of his last five games – an incredible return for the man who netted 30 Premier League goals for Tottenham last season.
