Bayern Munich legend Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has compared Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane to Robert Lewandowski.
The two prolific hitmen will come up against each other this evening when the German giants are the visitors to North London in the second match of Group B in the Champions League.
Rummenigge, 64, played as a forward for Bayern and is now the CEO of the Bundesliga outfit.
He heaped praise on Kane, who has scored 15 goals in 20 Champions League outings, while Lewandowski has bagged 54 in 81 games.

Rummenigge suggested that the pair are arguably the two best strikers in world football, he told BuliNews: “They are perhaps the best strikers in the world at the moment and both play a vital role,”
“Kane is a top player who scores an incredible number of goals – just like Robert does. Robert is on a great run of form, and I hope he will outscore Harry Kane on Tuesday. But it’s not easy to keep him quiet. He’s a world-class forward.”
At 31, Lewandowski is by far the more experienced of the two players but based on the pair’s current goalscoring record in European football’s most prestigious club competition, Kane’s ratio is better with a goal every 115 minutes compared to the Pole’s 127 minutes.
