Bale's hat trick came in a losing effort, but Kane's was vital to Spurs picking up their second victory in as many Champions League games this season.
Spurs still have to travel to Dortmund to play the current Bundesliga leaders but they will do so knowing they would likely progress with a draw at Westfalenstadion, were they to repeat their victory over Apoel at home.
The first half in Nicosia was all about Harry Kane.
The England forward beat the offside trap to get onto the end of Toby Alderweireld'sdefence splitting pass to cooly slot home past Waterman in the APOEL goal.
Kane later added goals 10 and 11 for the month in the second half to secure all three points for the north Londoners as they enjoyed a successful trip to Cyprus. "Because Dele Alli is like a second striker, he is a striker, playing very well". Hearts were in Tottenham mouths when it looked as if Davison Sanchez brought down Roland Sallai for a penalty but the whistle had already been blown for offside.
"I wasn't happy so we chose to change the system to improve and play better", Pochettino said.
However it looked like it'd be a hard evening as their Cypriot hosts had the better of the first-half exchanges.
Just after APOEL hit the bar, Sissoko was there to win a crucial block in midfield.
They rode their luck at times against a spirited Apoel side, who were spurred on by a buoyant home crowd, but in Kane Spurs arguably have the deadliest striker in the world on current form.
"We need to decide today after Saturday it was a very tough game against West Ham and this is the second day of recovery and we can not do too much here today, only try to assess everyone and pick the best starting XI for tomorrow to be fresh and try to provide good energy to the team".
9 - This is the ninth game between Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid in the Champions League since 2012-13, more than any other fixture in the competition over that period.
Tottenham have lost their last two London derbies in the Premier League (0-1 v West Ham in May & 1-2 v Chelsea in August) - they haven't lost three in a row in the league since August 2005.
"Both are the type of players you want in your team, in the same team".
