Lewandowski Still Waiting for Robben to Pass the Ball

Lewandowski Still Waiting for Robben to Pass the Ball

By  Monday, 9.11.2015, 12:33    Bayern Munich

“FIFA 16 is so realistic, when you click on Robben to pass – he doesn’t.”

That was an old Arjen Robben joke (we updated it from FIFA 13), that became topical again after Bayern Munich’s Satuday 4:0 (Robben, Costa, Muller, Lewandowski) victory over the VfB Stuttgart. Robben scored once, but also missed the goal at two occasions when Robert Lewandowski stood much better and didn’t get the pass he should have gotten. Lewandowski complained during the match, but remained quiet afterwards.

Robben said: “That’s football, it also happens the other way around. One or two times Robert also could have passed the ball to me.”

Bayern maintained their perfect home record this season and consolidated their hold on top spot in the Bundesliga with a comprehensive 4-0 demolition of South German rivals VfB Stuttgart on Saturday afternoon, the Reds’ seventh consecutive league success at the Allianz Arena and their ninth straight home win in all competitions this term.

The 75.000 crowd saw Pep Guardiola’s men tear into their opponents from the off and take an early two-goal lead through Arjen Robben and Douglas Costa. Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller sent the rampant Reds four clear before half-time, although one of the biggest cheers of the day was reserved for sub Holger Badstuber on his comeback from a lengthy injury lay-off.
