Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund was easily the most anticipated matches of the Bundesliga in this month and despite the absence of Franck Ribery for Bayern Munich they still managed to claim a vital victory that gave them some breathing space at the top of the German League.
Following their 3-0 victory over their rivals, Arjen Robben spoke about what matches like this feels like as he even said that he wishes all matches were as intense as that one.
“If it was up to me, I would be fine with playing Dortmund every week,” the Dutchman told the official Bayern website.I love games like this. These are the games you dream of when you’re a little boy – in stadiums like this, with this atmosphere, against this kind of opposing team. What more do you want.”
The Dutch winger later went on saying that despite their advantage at the top of the league, they have to keep their feet on the ground as anything can happen at anytime.
He added: “We’ve taken a big step, but let’s not forget it was only 1-0 until five minutes from the end, and Dortmund had chances to win it as well. We need to keep both feet on the ground.”
Arjen Robben is one of the top candidates on receiving the 2013 Ballon d’Or alongside his partner Ribery. Even though the favorites on winning the award is spread between Messi, C.Ronaldo and Ribery no one can deny the Dutchman from having a sensational last season with his memorable winning goal during the finals of the Champions League as Bayern Munich defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-1 and were claimed as the Champions of Europe.
