Arsenal have been handed a significant advantage leading up to the UEFA Champions League quarter-final fixture against Bayern Munich, as England striker Harry Kane suffered an injury setback against Darmstadt on Saturday in the Bundesliga. 

Kane, who made history by surpassing Uwe Seeler’s record for the most goals in a debut season in the German top-flight, was forced off the pitch after sustaining an injury during Bayern’s commanding 5-2 victory over bottom club Darmstadt.

The England captain found the net for his 31st league goal, putting him ahead of Seeler’s milestone. However, Kane’s celebratory moment was short-lived as he collided with a post, prompting his substitution and raising concerns just a week before his scheduled appearance for England in a friendly against Brazil at Wembley.

Kane’s goal came in response to Jamal Musiala’s equaliser for Darmstadt, who initially took the lead through Tim Skarke. Despite Bayern’s dominant second-half performance, extending their lead with goals from Musiala, Serge Gnabry, and Mathys Tel, Darmstadt’s Oscar Vilhelmsson managed a late consolation goal.

With less than a month remaining before Arsenal clash with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals at the Emirates Stadium on April 9th, Kane’s injury offers a glimmer of hope for the Gunners. The former Tottenham striker has a history of troubling Arsenal, having scored 14 goals in 19 games against them during his time in England.

German reporter Patrick Strasser revealed Bayern director Christoph Freund’s remarks regarding Kane’s injury, indicating potential concerns for the English striker’s availability in upcoming fixtures.

“We hope it’s not that bad. It was a precautionary measure that he went out.

“Harry twisted his ankle and the area had to be cooled down. He won’t take any risks with the national team.”

Should Kane’s injury prove to be more serious than a minor discomfort, he might be sidelined for Bayern Munich’s highly anticipated showdown against Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker on March 30. 

Furthermore, Bayern Munich supporters will be barred from attending the forthcoming match in London, as UEFA imposed a ban on the club due to incidents involving the throwing of fireworks onto the pitch during a previous fixture against Lazio.
