Tuchel wants Bayern to pump the ball more to Kane 3

Kane scored 28 goals in 28 matches in all competitions since joining Bayern for a total fee of 132 million USD – a record for German football – in the summer of 2023.

But the English striker is being criticized for being lackluster in the 0-3 loss at Leverkusen in round 21 of the Bundesliga last weekend.

Before the match against Lazio, Tuchel saw maximizing Kane’s influence as the key for Bayern to return to winning ways.

Harry Kane scores in Bayern’s 0-3 loss to host Leverkusen at the Bay Arena in round 21 of the Bundesliga on February 10.

Similarly, also attending the press conference, captain goalkeeper Manuel Neuer said that Kane was weak because Bayern’s system did not work well against Leverkusen.

Lazio entered the 1/8 round of the Champions League for the third time as the second team in Group E, behind Atletico Madrid.

However, Tuchel evaluates Lazio as very strong when playing at home and uses the 1-0 derby win over Roma in the quarterfinals of the Italian Cup as an example.

When asked whether Bayern underestimated Lazio, the 50-year-old coach replied: `I can’t imagine anyone underestimating this match, especially after what happened in the last match.

Matthijs de Ligt did not play in the loss to Leverkusen and is expected to return to the starting lineup today.
