In an exciting all German Champions League final played at Wembley Stadium in London, Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund to claim the title of European Champions League winners 2013. It is the fifth time the club has secured victory in this competition although their last win was not since 2001 when they beat Valencia. Â Over the last few years the German team have suffered disappointment after reaching the Champions League final in both 2010 and 2012 but losing out on both occasions to Inter Milan and Chelsea respectively. The first half was evenly played with good attacking football from both teams, but ended with a 0-0 score line. Both teams emerged after the half time break revitalised and eager to win, and what an exciting second half it proved to be. A pass from Robben set up Mandzukic in the 60th minute to put the team in the Munich football shirts a goal up. Â A badly thought out tackle from Dante meant Borussia Dortmund were awarded a penalty that expertly hit the back of the net thanks to Gundogan, levelling the score only seven minutes later. Â With everything to play for and neither team relishing the thought of extra time, and the possibility of penalties the final twenty minutes provided an outstanding display of football determination and skill, culminating in an 89th minute goal scored by Robben, ending the game with a final score of 2-1 for Bayern.

Robben who scored the winning goal on Saturday night at Wembley Stadium is a Dutch player who joined Bayern Munich in 2009 and wears the number 10 team shirt. Â Since his football debut in 1999 for Groningen, a Dutch football team, he has played for some of the most well known European clubs including PSV, Chelsea and Real Madrid. During his career he has been involved with winning some of the most major honours in European leagues including the Premier League and FA Cup with Chelsea, La Liga during his time in Spain and the German Bundesliga but up to now the prestigious achievement of winning the Champions League has eluded him. Â In the 2012 Champions League final Robben had an extra time penalty saved resulting in the game ending in a penalty shoot out that Bayern Munich lost giving Chelsea, Robben's old team the glory, making this years win and the fact that he was also awarded the title of 'Man of the Match' much more special.

The Bayern Munich head coach Jupp Heynckes will retire from his role at the end of this season, Jupp has managed this successful German team on three different occasions during his coaching career, initially from 1987-91, then briefly in 2009 as caretaker manager before rejoining in 2011. Â He will end his career on a high after winning the Bundesliga and Champions League; he also has the opportunity to achieve the German treble if they win the German Cup that will played next weekend against VfB Stuttgart. Pep Guardiola will be taking charge of the winning team next season and he will have a tough act to follow if this winning German side is to be as competitive and successful next year.
