You can’t stop this.

Arjen Robben will turn 33 years old next month, and he's still one of the world's best players. Everyone sits there and watches him play out wide right, and they know exactly what he's going to do. He's going to get the ball. He's going to cut inside on his left foot. He's going to try to curl the ball just inside the far post.

Still, after all of these years, you still can't stop him.

Just 18 minutes into the match against Wolfsburg, Robben showed once again that, if he wants to score, he will score. You may know exactly what he’s going to do and where he’s going to go, but if he wants to go there, you can not stop him.

Carlo Ancelotti’s switch to an attacking 4-2-3-1 against Wolfsburg has enabled Bayern to unlock the Wolfsburg defense at will in the first half. It appears that he’s leaning toward this as a full time formation for this squad, at least in Bundesliga play.
