Robben refusing to count his chickens after first leg win



Former Chelsea star Arjen Robben is refusing to take anything for granted after his Bayern Munich side beat Inter Milan 1-0 away from home last night.

Bayern, led by Louis Van Gaal were the better team on the night and deserved their away goal, scored by German striker Mario Gomez.

Robben admitted he was delighted with his team’s performance in Milan, especially after losing to Inter in last year’s final, but knows anything is possible in the second leg at home in Germany.

“It was a very good game to watch,” he told Sky Sports. “I think it’s always difficult after the game.

“I think we were the better team and deserved to win. I think that’s a credit to us. We tried to play the ball around.

“You have to wait for the next chance. I still had the feeling that towards the end that time for a moment would come. In the end it came. We did well.

“You can’t compare it. It’s a one-off match. We won this game, but I’d prefer to win the other one. We have to move forward and forget about it.

“Tonight was very important. We played a good game. They are still in it. They are Italian and very dangerous. We cannot rest.”

Mario Gomez was also pleased with his performance, and labelled his goal his most important ever.

“That was certainly my most important goal in the Champions League,” he said.

“When you score a goal just before the end, which seals an away win, that is, of course, very nice.

“We fought for everything, everything at the back, everything up front and we were rewarded at the end.”
