Robben searching for away goal

By Football News



Arjen Robben says Bayern Munich will go to Juventus with the intention of scoring rather than defending their 2-0 lead from the first leg.

Goals from David Alaba and Thomas Mueller helped the Bavarians to an important win at the Allianz Arena last week, but Robben realises that the Champions League quarter-final tie is not over just yet.

"We're not going just to defend. We've come here to score because we know how important an away goal is because we didn't concede at home," Robben said.

"Of course, 2-0 is 2-0 and anything can happen in football, so we've got to keep our concentration and play our own game.

"We've had a terrific season. Of course the pressure is off in the league because we wrapped up the title and now we can concentrate on the Champions League and the German Cup, as we're in the semi-finals."

The Netherlands international then went on to stress that Bayern cannot afford to allow Andrea Pirlo any space in the return.

"He is a world-class player and players like him can rise to occasions like tomorrow so we've got to be careful. He's probably Juve's most important player and we've got to keep an eye on him."
