As the stage is once again set for European giants to grace the biggest competition in the group stages, PSG are set to host five times UEFA Champions League winners Bayern Munich on Wednesday night at Parc des Princes in Paris, France. Already familiar with their hosts’ big money spending in the summer transfer window, Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has issued an healthy warning to Unai Emery’s side by stating the fact even though money brings happiness but one thing is certain,  ‘it doesn’t score goals’ as the Bavarian giants are not intimidated with PSG’s high-end signings. 

Despite the French side has successfully roped in Brazilian superstar Neymar from Barcelona and teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe by spending around €400 million in total, the Ligue 1 defending champions are still facing problems when it comes to restoring parity within the ranks.  

“Paris have certainly given out a few more Euros than us, but money doesn’t score goals, quality on the pitch scores goals, good teams score goals,” Arjen Robben said in a statement. The 33-year-old believes that the overall performance of the team is more important that focusing on particular players. “The important thing is the performance of the team, not just to focus on particular players, ” the winger was quoted as saying.

When asked about how focused they are in facing the French side, the Netherland international revealed that Bayern are highly motivated and concentrated for challenges like this.“I know our team, they are highly motivated and concentrated for games like this,” Robben said. “I am convinced we can get something out of this game,” he concluded.
