Bayern Munich striker, Harry Kane, has tipped the Bavarians, Man City and Real Madrid as the real contenders for the Champions League title.
Recall that Kane scored a second-half penalty as Bayern Munich claimed a 4-3 victory over Manchester United in their Champions League group-stage opener on Wednesday.
Bayern took control when visiting goalkeeper Andre Onana let Leroy Sane’s weak shot roll into the net in the 28th minute before Serge Gnabry swept home a second.
Rasmus Hojlund pulled one back before Kane drilled in a penalty early in the second half.
Casemiro’s late effort briefly gave United hope of an unlikely comeback against the run of play, but Bayern substitute Mathys Tel smashed home a fourth for the hosts in added time.
Brazilian Casemiro nodded in another consolation goal for United from the last attack of the match.
When asked if he sees a standout favourite to win the Champions League this season, the England captain told Marca: “I’m not so sure, although, of course, you always have to mention Manchester City as the current champion.
“Then there is Real Madrid with their fantastic history and I think Bayern are also among the favorites.
“Of course, the Champions League is a very difficult competition with extraordinary duels against magnificent teams and you never know what can happen.”
