Harry Kane made his debut for Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup, but missed out on a first trophy as RB Leipzig won 3-0 at the Allianz Arena. The England captain stepped off the bench as a 63rd-minute replacement for Mathys Tel but had little chance to make an impact, with DFB-Pokal holders Leipzig running out convincing winners thanks to Dani Olmo’s hat-trick.

Kane, who wore the No 9 shirt after training with his new teammates for the first time on Saturday morning, was given a rapturous reception by the Bayern fans after stepping out of the dugout. His side were already 2-0 down after Olmo’s double in the first half.

The hosts’ performance left their coach, Thomas Tuchel, fuming, saying it was as if the team had done no work in their four-week pre-season. “It is a big problem because it feels as if we had done nothing in the past four weeks,” Tuchel said.

“I cannot explain it. It was just not enough in every department. I have just no idea why. There is no relation between our form and attitude going into the game and our performance on the pitch. It is not good. It is the worse thing because there is such a big discrepancy.”

Spain international Olmo pounced on Bayern’s sloppy defending in the third minute to slot in. He added another with a superb flick and turn that left two defenders standing a minute before the break. Leipzig’s Mohamed Simakan had almost gifted Bayern an equaliser a little earlier, hitting the post in his effort to clear the ball.

With Bayern wasteful up front and squandering half a dozen chances, Tuchel brought on Kane, whose transfer cost a reported Bundesliga record €100m, in the 63rd minute to huge cheers from Bayern fans.

Kane hardly got a look-in, however, with only three touches and it was Olmo who scored again, this time with a penalty only four minutes later, to secure the first title of the season for his team.

“It was an amazing night. We worked a lot over 90 minutes, also with possession,” Olmo said. “I think it was a perfect game. We expected to win, we wanted to lift this trophy and there is no better way to start the season. We want to be up there. We have a competitive team.”

Bayern, who kick off their Bundesliga season on Friday against Werder Bremen, will be hoping the addition of Kane will dramatically improve their conversion rate in attack this season. It is a problem they have been struggling with since the departure of Robert Lewandowski last year.
