Former Dutch International Arjen Robben is backing  Bayern Munich to recover from an early season slump that has seen them go without a win in their last three matches, saying that ‘things don’t go wrong in a week.’

The Bundesliga champions endured another frustrating evening on Tuesday as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Ajax in the Champions League, adding to the pressure on new manager Niko Kovac.

But club stalwart Robben, whose cross set up Mats Hummels’ early opener at the Allianz Arena, believes Kovac’s side are just one confidence-boosting victory away from being in a position to turn things around.

He said, “There is always something coming from outside. We have to be realistic and to analyse our situation properly. Obviously, we are not used to it and it is not our goal. But as I said, it’s not possible that within a week, everything turns bad. But that’s football, you need a victory to get back on track.”

Despite Hummels’ opener, Bayern were unable to assume full control of Tuesday’s game, and paid the price when Noussair Mazraoui fired in a shock equaliser from the edge of the box.

Both sides had chances to win what was an end-to-end encounter, but it was the visitors who came closest as Lasse Schone’s free-kick struck the crossbar with just seconds left on the clock.

The disappointing draw follows another stalemate at home to Augsburg as well as a 2-0 defeat to Hertha Berlin over the weekend.

Robben and Bayern will look to get back on track when they face Borussia Monchengladbach at home on Saturday.
