A great hope for FC Porto has certainly been just sparked as the ever-terrorizing Munchen’s winger, Arjen Robben, got fouled by Tony Jantschke. It was during the first half of Bayern Munich’s game with Monchengladbach on last Sunday. The foul on Robben was assumed to be out of the ordinary as it was late and the designated defender was cautioned. The tackle was hardly reckless and Jantschke was one out of many defenders who got owned by the flying Dutchman’s acceleration. Robben’s double tackle appeared rather excessive. Most medics assumed that it was the landing that had caused discomfort and another fatal injury for the winger. Robben held the ribs when he stepped out of the pitch after Thomas Muller substituted him. However, the fans got worried a lot after news pertaining to Robben’s stepping out of the pitch due to the injury indicated something worse than expected. The clinic examination has indicated something more than reasonable injury caution.
The other updated news is that the swift winger of Bayern Munchen will have to go on recovery treatment on his injury for “several weeks”. This news certainly caused lots of worries as the team would battle against Porto in the Champions League fixture. With ArjenRobben being one of the most productive players in the squad, 17 goals in 20 matches, it is quite certain that FC Porto will have the advantage due to the flying Dutchman’s absence.
Bayern’ defeat by 2-0 against Monchengladbach was assumed to be truly painful as the squad had to pay the price of loosing the winger for the next games. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge claimed that Robben injury was exceedingly painful as the team would go through tough games in the Champions league. The chairman said that the absence of Robben was going to be much more awfully felt over. With the injury, Bayern Munchen will probably have tough match in the quarter finals against Porto as the Portuguese team has shown incredibly performance in the last game they headed off.
The other fantastic point about FC Porto is that the team denotes the only undefeated team in the current season of the Champions League. However, most people assume that they could scoop the victory against Bayern Munchen slightly easier due to Robben’s absence. The FC Porto fans have been dreaming of seeing their team playing in the Champions league final, as what happened in 1987.
