Arjen Robben: Had chances to score but was happy that Bayern won 2-0

The Dutch ace began the UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg on the bench but came on in the 16th minute after Toni Kroos was injured.

He helped the German side - who had taken a first minute lead via David Alaba's deflected long range effort - then dominate proceedings.

But despite a whole host of chances, they could not get a second goal until the 63rd minute when Thomas Muller tapped in to give Bayern the advantage ahead of the second leg in Italy next Wednesday.

Robben told Sky Sports: "When we spoke about the game before we said we cannot concede a goal today, that is the most important thing.

"In the end, 2-0 at home, is a good advantage."

He added: "I think it was a very good game to watch because both teams were pressing forward and it was almost one-against-one on the whole pitch.

"I think especially there was a period in the first half straight after I came on when they made some mistakes and we were on the counter-attack and we had some good chances, myself as well.

"It was just a bit unfortunate that we didn't score another goal.

"In the end, in the second half, we scored another one, so it is a good result."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
