Robben motivated by 'extra special' reward

FC Bayern München forward Arjen Robben admits the prospect of a home final is "something extra special" but is refusing to think past their quarter-final with Olympique de Marseille.

FC Bayern München may be just four games away from a UEFA Champions League final at their very own Fußball Arena München, but forward Arjen Robben is refusing to get carried away.

Having seen off FC Basel 1893 with a dominant 7-0 second-leg win in the round of 16, Bayern's next task begins against quarter-final opponents Olympique de Marseille at the Stade Vélodrome on Tuesday. "We shouldn't talk about the final yet, but of course it's something extra special when it's in your own stadium," said Robben. "I think it's something special, the final in your stadium. For the club, it would be something incredibly big. First, we have to do everything to get a round further."
