Bayern won’t just defend, insists Robben

Arjen Robben has underlined that his Bayern Munich side will play their usual attacking game in the Champions League return leg against Juventus.

The German giants will start Wednesday’s tie with a two-goal advantage, but the Dutchman insists his side won’t play cautiously.

“We have come to Turin to score,” he stated. “We know how important an away goal could be because we didn’t concede at home.

“Bayern Munich are not just going to defend. We’re 2-0 up, but anything can happen in football. We have to remain focused and play our own game.”

Robben also played down Mirko Vucinic’s recent claim that he predicted a “war” in the second leg.

“That word has little to do with football,” added the attacking midfielder. “Nevertheless, we know what to expect.”

Bayern managed to keep Andrea Pirlo quiet in the first game and that seems to be the plan for tomorrow night too.

“Pirlo is world class,” he added. “Players like him can always step up to the occasion like the tie on Wednesday.

“He is probably their most important player so we have to be careful, we’ve got to keep an eye on him out there.”
