UCL: Kane double sends Bayern to Q’finals as Mbappe shines in PSG win



England striker Harry Kane scored two goals to help Bayern Munich overturn a first-leg deficit against Lazio in the Champions League knockout on Tuesday night.

Bayern, who came from 1-0 down in the first leg, sealed a 3-0 victory at home in the second leg to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Kane opened the scoring to equalise before Thomas Muller doubled the lead on the night with another header, and Kane made it 3-1 on aggregate in the second half.

The win revives Bayern’s hopes for a major trophy this season having endured lots of pressure in the Bundesliga, where they are 10 points behind leaders Leverkusen.
