Robben fires Bayern to Champions League glory

Postby FCBayernNews » Sat Nov 09, 2019 9:45 am

FC Bayern take on Borussia Dortmund on Saturday evening, but Arjen Robben will not feature for the Reds any longer. Hardly any player has shaped recent clashes with Borussia as much as the Dutchman. Robben wore Bayern colours in 20 matches against Dortmund until hanging up his boots last summer, scoring 11 goals. Bayern fans will never forget at least one of these goals: the match-winner in the 2013 Champions league final.

The 89th minute at Wembley: Franck Ribéry connects to a long ball from Jérôme Boateng, conjuring up a cunning back-heel to set up Arjen Robben. The Dutchman slots past the onrushing Roman Weidenfeller, with Mats Hummels and Lukasz Piszczek unable to prevent the ball from trundling over the line.

It proved the decisive goal. FC Bayern were kings of Europe. "I've watched it 20, 30 times, but I still gives me goosebumps," Arjen Robben says six years later, stressing the role of Franck Ribéry, who set up the goal: "We must also thank Franck. Sure, I scored the goal, but there aren't many players who pass the ball with that kind of game intelligence," added the Bayern legend.
