Bayern took the lead in the opening minute of the game as David Alaba's deflected shot found its way past Gianluigi Buffon, and the hosts - and Robben in particular - had opportunities to extend their advantage before the break.

Thomas Muller finally extended the German side's advantage on 63 minutes, and Robben - a 16th-minute substitute after Toni Kroos sustained an injury - was more than happy with the scoreline.

"When we spoke about the game before, we said we couldn't concede a goal today," he told Sky Sports. "That was the important thing and in the end 2-0 at home - good advantage.

"I think it was a very good game to watch, because both teams were pressing forward and it was almost one against one all over the pitch.

"I think there was a period in the first half, just after I came on, where they made some mistakes and we had some good chances. It was just a bit unfortunate that we didn't score another goal but in the end, in the second half, we scored another one, and [it was a] good result.''
