thumbnail Hello,

The Dutch international is eager to be part of the starting XI in the decisive Champions League game against Juventus...

Bayern Munich lock horns with Juventus on Tuesday evening and the German powerhouse desperately need the full three points if they are to qualify for the knock-out phase of the Champions League.

Highly rated winger Arjen Robben, who hasn't started a match for Bayern since the home game against Juventus in late September, has fully recovered from his knee problem and is raring to go again against the Bianconeri.

“I’m fit and ready for Tuesday's match against Juventus. It’s a vital match, and I’d like to play from the start," the Dutch international was quoted as saying on the official FCB website.

“I don’t know how long I’ll manage. Maybe only 60 or 70 minutes, or maybe the full 90. I have a much better feeling now than if I’d tried it too early.

“I’ve not spoken to head coach Louis van Gaal yet, but I think the boss knows I’d like to play.”
