Robben: Bayern no longer the favorite

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben says his side can no longer be considered the favorite to win the Champions League as the club prepares to face Real Madrid.

The reigning European champion has been odds-on to become the first team to defend the trophy in the modern era throughout the tournament so far, but Robben believes such expectation counts for nothing against a side he believes is the most dangerous in the competition.

"They have the best players," Robben told Kicker. "If you have a 10 minute period where you switch off, you can suddenly concede three goals. There'll be a lot demanded of us.

"We are no longer favorites. Of course we want to win the Champions League again, but we're in the semifinal – and anything can happen. Real are the most dangerous opponent we could have faced."
