Arjen Robben has challenged Bayern Munich to beat Chelsea in Saturday's UEFA Champions League showpiece to get over the painful German Cup final thrashing.
Bayern went down to a humiliating 5-2 defeat at Berlin's Olympic Stadium on Saturday as German champions Borussia Dortmund sealed the domestic double.
Robben, who netted a first-half penalty in the defeat, wants to erase this painful memory with joy on home soil at the Allianz Arena next weekend.
The Dutch winger said: "We have to win the title against Chelsea next week and then we can forget about the defeat against Dortmund.
"Losing 5-2 hurts a lot and I can't explain that performance.
"We're frustrated now, but as of Monday our focus is on the Champions League final."
Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes admitted Munich had suffered a "catastrophe" in defence and has demanded a response.
"The game against Chelsea will be a completely different game," insisted the coach, who led Real Madrid to their 1998 Champions League win.
"Obviously my players are disappointed but we will have recovered from this shock by next week. We cannot allow ourselves the same mistakes."
