Arjen Robben returned in emphatic fashion with a class finish against FC Köln

Arjen Robben finished in cool and collected fashion to give Bayern Munich the lead

Missing for two months and with some doubt as to whether he would start, Arjen Robben made sure everyone knew he was back. Breaking the deadlock against a staunch FC Köln defense, Arjen Robben pounced on one fo the few loose balls conceded in the box.

And Arjen Robben in the box with the ball at his feet is a deadly animal. One touch, putting it out of the range of the onrushing Timo Horn and cooly slotted into the back of the net. It was a goal that would have made Thomas Müller proud.

Given that until this time, Bayern had struggled with how to get Robben the space and time he needed to run at the Köln backline, it was a welcome relief. Bodied up and double teamed whenever he did find himself on the ball, Arjen Robben has spent much of the match moving away from goal. This goal should open up the match.
