Arjen Robben: Midfielder looking forward to semi-finals

The former Chelsea midfielder believes the right teams have made it into the last four and is excited by the prospect of the next round.

Bayern beat Juventus 2-0 in Turin to secure a comfortable 4-0 aggregate win.

The Dutchman said: "I think a 2-0 win in Turin is an amazing result because they are unbeaten here for so long.

"They are a great team, they are so strong at the back and I think it is a great performance by us."

The draw for the semi-finals takes place on Friday and Robben is hoping for Spanish opposition.

He continued: "I think we want to be kept apart from Borussia Dortmund. It's nice when we play each other but it would be a nice final."

"The semi-finals are going to be big - two big semi finals, probably between the four best teams at the moment so it's going to be very nice."

Bayern secured the Bundesliga title at the weekend and Robben believes this could help them to even more success towards the end of the season

"We knew it was going to happen because we had a big lead but it is good that it's done because we can completely focus on the Champions League now," he added.

"Next week we also play in semi-final of the German cup so we have a lot of big games to come."

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
