Thursday marks the four-year anniversary of the Champions League final at Wembley. Arjen Robben scored the match-winner on 25 May 2013, making himself immortal for the Bayern faithful. The fans regularly honour the man and his goal with their chant Der Arjen hat's gemacht (Arjen's done it).

Every Bayern fan remembers the 89th minute, when the Dutch ace made it 2-1 against Borussia Dortmund. Franck Ribéry connects to a long ball by Jérome Boateng, conjuring up a cunning back-heel. The ball evades Mats Hummels, a BVB pro then, and Lukasz Pisczek, with Neven Subotic stumbling. Up steps Robben to slot the ball past netminder Roman Weidenfeller. The ball keeps rolling for seemingly endless seconds until trundling over the line to send the crowd into raptures.

After losing two finals, Bayern had finally won the Champions League. Robben was brimming with joy after the final whistle, and the fans rewarded him with a chant especially for him.

In the ‘Looking Back’ series, will be presenting regular snapshots from the photo archives for fans to enjoy.
