Bayern Munich, the defending German champions, will seek speedy retribution against RB Leipzig when they visit the Red Bull Arena on Saturday.
Kane's debut was overshadowed by Leipzig's 3-0 Super Cup victory in Munich in August, which featured a hat-trick from Dani Olmo and led many to question if Bayern's struggles from last season, which nearly lost them the title, would persist. After seven games, Thomas Tuchel's team has struggled against stronger opposition, despite Bayern's recent undefeated streak and Kane's eight goals.
Bayern required a last-second goal to defeat their archrival Borussia Moenchengladbach, twice gave up leads to draw with the outstanding Bayer Leverkusen of Xabi Alonso, and nearly lost to Manchester United after allowing two late Casemiro goals.
Leipzig has won seven of eight games this season in all competitions, despite a turbulent off-season that saw them lose four first-team players, including top scorer Christopher Nkunku, Konrad Laimer, Josko Gvardiol, and Dominik Szoboszlai.
