M. ter Stegen
May have conceded the penalty, but was one of his side's star performers, making a string of saves as BVB laid siege to his goal late on.
Missed an excellent chance to score for his side with a header that went straight at Weidenfeller, and like Dominguez, was given a hard time by Gotze's running.
Did a great job of ruining Reus' Borussia Park homecoming, shackling his former team-mate brilliantly, never affording him the room to express himself.
Followed up his recent poor run of form with another bad showing here. Was given a torrid time by Gotze's direct running in the first period, in particular.
Dealt with BVB's double-pronged attack down the right well enough, but did not get forward in support of Wendt as much as he would have liked.
Got down the left well to help set up the equaliser, but will be disappointed not to exploit the space left by Piszczek more.
Took his goal superbly, and it was no less than the youngster deserved for a great performance. Was also the first Gladbach player to test Weidenfeller shortly before the goal, and never stopped running.
Nearly scored a freak goal which almost crept into the net over Weidenfeller. Broke forward well from midfield, particularly after the break, without abandoning his defensive station.
Found himself in a couple of good positions thanks to his industry on the right, but all too often, he failed to take advantage. Still, he put in a decent enough shift for his side.
Was up for the fight in midfield, and but for his yellow card for a clumsy challenge on Gotze, could be very happy with his showing.
Was never really involved with the match prior to his withdrawal just after the hour-mark, showing a couple of lethargic touches.
Could do little about the goal, but was generally composed throughout, making a couple of decent saves, without having all that much to do.
Had a great first half, fending away a host of promising attacks, as BVB hunted in packs, but was forced off with a minor thigh injury at half-time.
Brought his usual mix of tidy defending and endless drive to the match, helping create counter-attacks, but not abandoning his post at the back.
Beaten for pace by Wendt in the build-up to the goal, and was fairly quiet until his withdrawal in favour of Nuri Sahin late on.
Like Hummels, he defended fairly well as Gladbach failed to trouble Dortmund truly for the most part, but will be disappointed that the cross for the goal was taken into Younes' path via a deflection off him.
Was neat and tidy enough when afforded a rare start, but really did not stand out at all. Was unsurprisingly withdrawn in favour of the more attacking Bajner.
As ever, he dictated the game in the middle of the park, helping drive his team forward, and had a couple of decent-looking efforts.
Brought his usual industry to his side, but snatched at a couple of decent chances late on.
Was a constant thorn in Gladbach's side throughout the first half, winning and scoring the penalty with a run of real quality, and had a couple of late threatening efforts saved by Ter Stegen.
Missed an easy chance with the last kick of the game, but was generally steady in possession throughout.
Stole the show when the two sides met earlier this season, but failed to replicate the performance on his Borussia Park homecoming. His link-up play was not to its usual standard, and his set pieces were poor.
