Arjen Robben was an unstoppable force in Bayern Munich’s Der Klassiker victory over Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 28.
The 33-year-old winger rolled back the years against Dortmund and terrorised the BVB backline with his persistent runs. It was a textbook lesson in inverted wing play by the master himself as he constantly looked to come inside onto his left foot.
The Borussia defence were almost powerless to resist as Robben fired off more shots than anyone else on the pitch (8). The Dutchman was rewarded for his relentless efforts when he curled Bayern’s third inside Roman Bürki’s right-hand post in classic Robben style.
And he also raced away with the #BLMVP vote to win the Matchday 28 prize!
