After Bayern Munich returned to winning ways at Stuttgart, Arjen Robben warned that the champions are back in full flow.
Arjen Robben has warned Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga rivals that the champions will always produce a “magic moment” after they stayed on course for yet another title by beating Stuttgart 2-0 on Saturday.
The champions started 2015 in disappointing style with a 4-1 loss at Wolfsburg and then drew 1-1 against Schalke on Tuesday.
Normal service was resumed at Stuttgart, though, with stunning strikes from Robben and David Alaba either side of half-time securing the points.
In-form winger Robben took his tally to eight goals in his last nine games when he struck with a fine first-half finish and the Netherlands international felt Bayern’s clinical attack made the difference.
“Stuttgart pulled everyone back and defended so it was important to score just before half-time,” Robben told reporters.
“It put us in a good position and made the second half a bit easier. It was time we took three points, that was very important to us.
“Stuttgart were very defensive and used their wingers as full-backs. You have to go in search of the gaps. The magic moment always comes, we always make chances – but you have to take your chances.
“We scored from our first chance and that’s what you need in a game like that.”
Bayern hold an eight-point gap over second-placed Wolfsburg and welcome Hamburg to the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
