Ribery & Robben Hand Munich Win

Bayern Munich left it till late to get the better of FC Nurnberg in their Bundesliga match on Saturday afternoon as goals from Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben in the final 20 minutes of the match saw them win 2-0.

Despite the convincing win from Bayern it was not their best performance on the night. They controlled the match and dominated the possession stakes, but while they were able to fashion many chances on goal their finishing was poor.

Daniel Ginczek came close to scoring 15 minutes into the game when he saw his 35-yard shot smash against the underside of the crossbar and bounce away from danger.

In the 31st minute Bayern were awarded a penalty after Robben was fouled inside the box, but they failed to take the opportunity as David Alaba shot straight at the keeper from the spot.

The second-half saw Bayern continue to press forward and they finally made their pressure tell in the 68th minute as a low-cross from Alaba fell to Phillip Lahm on the opposite side and he picked out Ribery perfectly for the French winger to head in the opening goal, 1-0.

The second goal came nine minutes later as Robben came in off the right touchline, beating three Nurnberg players, inside and outside, before tucking the ball home into the far corner of the net, 2-0.

The win sees Bayern maintain their 100 percent win record at the start of their Bundesliga season.
