Robben excited to face Wolfsburg in DFB Pokal

Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich - Robben excited for Cup match as he compares it to a UCL scenario

October 27, 2015 By Oscar Casanova Perches
Arjen Robben played his first game this past weekend since being injured on September 3. He scored and played 68 minutes against Cologne.

Arjen Robben is back and can't wait to continue helping his team achieve more titles. The Dutch midfielder returned to action against Cologne and wants to keep his good momentum going against Wolfsburg in the DFB Pokal. The 31-year-old player expects a high-intensity match with a taste of a Champions League scenario.

"It'll be a top match at a very high level -- like in the Champions League, I'd say," Robben said in an interview with Bayern Munich's staff.

The Dutch star scored a goal in his comeback game after more than a month watching from the sidelines. Bayern went ahead to win its 10th game of the season out of the ten that have been played. They have 30 points of the 30 points possible, with a seven-point gap ahead of Borussia Dortmund.

His manager, Pep Guardiola is happy to have Robben back. He knows how vital he can be to the collective effort and it showed in the 65 minutes he played against Cologne. Robben has been smiling ever since he was allowed back on the pitch, as he claims that it is the place he belongs in. 

"I like this pressure, these knockout matches -- you're either through or out," Guardiola said to the team's website. "It's a final. In a final you have to act like you're in a final. We have to play with lots of energy."

Last year it was Wolfsburg the team that won the cup. If they want to dream about repeating, they must be able to beat a team that has only lost to Arsenal this season. 

Bayern will also count with Javi Martinez for this game. Those that won't be able to play are Mario Gotze, Franck Ribery, Sebastian Rode, Medhi Benatia and Holger Badstuber. When they played last month, Robert Lewandowski scored all five goals in Bayern's 5-1 victory over Wolfsburg.
