Berlin: Goal-scorer Arjen Robben said disappointment was rife in Bayern Munich’s changing room after their 2-2 draw, after having a two-goal lead, at Juventus in the Champions League.

There is all to play for in the last 16, second leg tie, at Munich’s Allianz Arena on March 16 as Juve’s Stefano Sturaro and Paulo Dybala netted second-half goals for 2-2 after Thomas Mueller and Robben had put Bayern in command on Tuesday.
Bayern were coasting when Robben’s superb strike from the edge of the area left them with a comfortable lead on 55 minutes until last season’s Champions League finalists roared back.
“You could feel the disappointment in the dressing room,” admitted Robben.
“When you are 2-0 up, you have to close the game down against an opponent like that. Above all else, we have to keep control of things in defence. Our starting position for the return leg is good and we need to go out there with a lot of passion, but also use our heads, like we did for the first 60 minutes today.”
