Robben was a constant threat to the Arsenal defense, his performance crowned early on with one of his trademark goals.

Altogether, Robben had three attempts on target apart from the goal, all blocked, while his interplay with Philipp Lahm and Thiago Alcantara helped make the Arsenal defense look weak.

Former Bayern coach Ottmar Hitzfeld, who led the team to the Champions League title in 2001, has spoken of Bayern's problem when it comes to replacing Robben, with neither Douglas Costa nor Kingsley Coman at the Dutch star's level.

Since joining from Real Madrid in 2009, Robben has scored 84 goals and set up 50 more in 156 league games.

"If Arjen has the feeling he can no longer compete at the highest level, then he'll stop," Robben's father Hans said last month after his son signed the contract extension.
