Arjen Robben admits Bayern Munich flirted with "disaster" during their Champions League win over Manchester United.
The Dutchman was on the scoresheet in the 3-1 win.
"They scored the first goal so of course it was a tricky tie, but in the end 3-1 is a very good result," the former Chelsea winger told Sky Sports.
"I think it was very important we scored straight after they did. It was crucial today. It looked like a wake-up call because the first 10 minutes of the second half were a disaster the way we played.
"We were so slow, we were not there and you cannot do that in the Champions League - you will be punished. That's what they did, but it was a wake-up call and we scored three goals.
"We wanted to attack and play our football. They were there for the counter-attack - they are very dangerous with great players up front who are very quick.
"We had to be careful. In the first half we controlled the game, in the second half we were very, very bad and we got punished, but fortunately we turned it around."
