Arjen Robben still loves the game as he looks for a second Champions League triumph

ARJEN ROBBEN claims he “lives for Champions League nights” with Bayern Munich looking to book a semi-final spot against Sevilla tonight.

The German giants nicked two vital away goals in Spain last week — coming from behind to win 2-1 and remain in the driving seat as they return to the Allianz Stadium to finish the job in the second-leg, and Dutchman Robben, who was rested for the first leg, has spoken of his love for the European competition that he won with Bayern in 2013.

He said: “It’s the pinnacle to play at this level and really special.

“I live for these Champions League evenings, and that’s why you become a footballer.

“Some players get really nervous, but they set positive energy free in me.”

He added: “Sevilla are in the last chance saloon and a dangerous team.

“They did very well to win in Manchester [against United] and we know we have to perform at our best.”

Sevilla boss Vincenzo Montella said: “The impossible things might become possible if you believe, and I still believe.

“We will play with the same pride or even more.”
