LONDON (AP) -- Arjen Robben scored in the 89th minute to give Bayern Munich a 2-1 win over German rival Borussia Dortmund on Saturday in the Champions League final, ending four years of frustration for his team in Europe's biggest tournament.

Robben ran onto Franck Ribery's backheeled flick in the penalty area and sent the ball past goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller to give Bayern its first Champions League victory since 2001. The German team had lost two of the last three finals.
