Bayern Munich's 2-0 victory over Eintracht Braunschweig on Saturday might have looked straightforward on paper, but the Bundesliga leaders were reliant on a moment of defensive brilliance from David Alaba to keep a clean sheet.

It wasn't the only remarkable moment from the match: Arjen Robben's failed sliding celebration drew its fair share of attention too.
