Prolific Robben spearheading trophy drive

Increase font size Text size

2010 is showing promising signs of being Arjen Robben’s year. For all Bayern’s superb team effort in the Champions League semi-final first leg against Olympique Lyon, it was Robben who – yet again – provided the moment of individual brilliance. In the Bundesliga, the DFB Cup and in Europe, the summer signing from Real Madrid has scored many decisive goals, usually extremely pleasing on the eye too.

The Dutch ace has 20 goals in 31 outings for Bayern, an amazing 16 of those goals in 18 matches since the turn of the year. The total comprises 14 in the Bundesliga, two in the cup and four in the Champions League, level with Ivica Olic as the club’s leading European marksman.
