Harry Kane was on the score sheet for Bayern Munich during their Saturday visit at Augsburg, despite VAR controversy.
Kane’s goal came at a crucial time in the game, with Augsburg narrowing Bayern’s lead to a single goal.
However, Kane found himself in an offside position when he tapped the ball into the net, initially appearing to validate the assistant referee’s decision.
However, upon review by VAR, it was clear that Jamal Musiala had been tackled, causing the ball to deflect off a defender before Kane’s touch.
The VAR decision overturned the initial ruling, awarding Kane the goal.
The goal, his 23rd in the Bundesliga, not only secured Bayern’s victory but also closed the gap to league leaders Bayer Leverkusen to a single point ahead of their clash with Borussia Monchengladbach.
However, Bayern’s path to victory was also threatened in the dying minute.
A late-game penalty awarded to Augsburg due to a mistimed punch by Manuel Neuer tested Bayern’s lead.
Although Neuer saved the penalty, Thomas Muller’s foul soon after led to another spot-kick for Augsburg, with Ermedin Demirovic converting.
Despite the late drama, Bayern managed to hold on for the win.
