CONGRATULATIONS Bayern Munich, 2013 Champions League champions. Dortmund 1-2 Bayern Munich

This was Arjen Robben's 25th shot in a Champions League final. Perseverance is the key word today.

Indeed it was a final to remember and after several months battling it out, it all came down to today’s game between Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich at Wembley. Who would have thought it will be this two at the end, this is one of the main reasons I love football-its unpredictability.

Redeeming himself from last year’s penalty miss against Chelsea, Robben’s  last minute strike secured the Champions League win for Bayern today. The 29-year-old Dutch international rolled in the decisive goal against Borussia Dortmund in the 89th minute, having twice been denied in the first half. He also set up the opener for Mario Mandzukic earlier in the second-half of the game. He was the man of the match and winning the cup was definitely reward for all that hard work.

Earlier in the first half, Dortmund held their ground and they owe it all to their goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller, he did everything possible but in the end, Bayern proved to be more determined and eventually winning the cup.
Dortmund’s only chance for a goal came when Bayern Munich’s Dante smashed into Marco Reus to give Ilkay Gundogan the chance to level with a penalty in the 67th minute of the second half.
