Robben played the first half before withdrawing as he remains some way away from match fitness, having last appeared for the Bavarians in the Champions League final loss to Inter Milan last May.

He also featured for Holland in their World Cup final loss to Spain.

Bayern have been trying to obtain compensation from the Dutch Federation after last season's Bundesliga player of the year returned from World Cup duty unfit for the start of the season.

Part of the compensation could take the form of a match between the Dutch international side and Bayern with the latter keeping the match receipts.

Robben is hoping to be fit for Bayern's first match after the winter break which pits them against Wolfsburg on January 15.
