Bayern cannot be complacent against Sevilla, says Robben

Arjen Robben insists Bayern Munich can ill afford to rest on their laurels when they welcome Sevilla for the second leg of their Champions League encounter.

The five-time European champions boast a commanding 2-1 advantage in the quarter-final showdown after coming from a goal down in Spain last week.

However, as far as Robben is concerned, there is work to be done and Bayern must be wary of underestimating Vincenzo Montella’s men, who eliminated Manchester United in the last-16. NaijaBet

“We need to be careful,” he told reporters, via BBC Sport. “They did brilliantly in Manchester and we know we have to perform.”

“A 2-1 win away from home is always great, but it’s not the same as 5-0 against Besiktas.”

Robben’s career

Since arriving from Real Madrid in 2009 for around £20m, the Dutchman has played 286 matches, scoring 138 goals while creating a further 97 assists.

He has enjoyed great success winning seven Bundesliga titles, the Champions League – scoring the winner against Borussia Dortmund in 2013 – as well as four German Cups.

His glittering career began at boyhood club, Groningen, before leaving for PSV Eindhoven and then Chelsea. Robben was deemed surplus to requirements by the returning Real president Florentino Perez, though, and was sold to Bayern.

Formerly the Dutch national team captain, Robben retired from international football after Oranje failed to qualify for this summer’s World Cup; he stepped down having won 96 caps scoring 37 goals.

And Robben will be hoping he can add another European trophy to his impressive collection, as his side take on Sevilla at the Allianz Arena in their Champions League quarter-final second leg tie on Wednesday.
