Arjen Robben scored a go-ahead goal in the 89th minute to give Bayern Munich a 2-1 victory over German rival Borussia Dortmund on Saturday night in the Champions League final, ending four years of frustration for his team in club soccer’s biggest tournament.

Bayern Munich Win 2013 UEFA Champions League“I don’t know how many times I dreamed about it,” Robben said. “Everybody I spoke to before the game, I said, `Today is going to be the night and we’re going to do it.’ To do it in the end is an unbelievable feeling.”

Bayern had lost two of the last three Champions League finals.

In a game that featured a slew of chances for both teams, Mario Mandzukic put Bayern ahead in the 60th minute, and Ilkay Gundogan tied it with a penalty kick 8 minutes later after defender Dante fouled Marco Reus.

Victory made Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes only the fourth manager to win the trophy with two different clubs, after a 1998 triumph with Real Madrid, as he prepares to step aside for incoming successor Pep Guardiola.
