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."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
