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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
