Goal rates the players on show at Stade Velodrome, as Klopp's men provide late drama to top Group F, and ensure Marseille ends its campaign on zero points.

  • Steve Mandanda

    Steve Mandanda

    Superb all evening, making a couple of outstanding saves to keep his side in it. Nevertheless, lucky not to have conceded a penalty for a challenge on Lewandowski.

  • Lucas

    2.50

    Lucas

    Suffered an injury in the build-up to the first goal and never really recovered, looking pretty shaky for much of the first half before being substituted.

  • Souleymane Diawara

    Souleymane Diawara

    Got Marseille back on level terms with the equalizer, before defending heroically until BVB's late winner.

  • Benjamin Mendy

    Benjamin Mendy

    The young left back failed to make a decent impact on the left wing, leaving himself susceptible to counter attacks.

  • Rod Fanni

    Rod Fanni

    Decent evening for the France international, who, despite not being able to advance sufficiently, put in a good defensive shift.

  • Benoît Cheyrou

    Benoît Cheyrou

    Sat in front of the defense and broke up play at regular intervals while creating a few chances for his side.

  • Mario Lemina
    0
    0
    2.50

    Mario Lemina

    Lemina was preferred to Imbula in midfield by interim boss Jose Anigo and the young midfielder didn't disappoint. Took his time to settle into the game, but defended well.

  • Florian Thauvin

    2.00

    Florian Thauvin

    Only shined briefly this evening after being kept under wraps by an impressive Dortmund defense. Had a couple of chances, but didn't make a great impact.

  • André Pierre Gignac

    2.50

    André Pierre Gignac

    Gignac highlighted his tireless work ethic with a strong first-half performance, but tailed off after the second half in which OM was forced to defend.

  • Dimitri Payet

    1.50

    Dimitri Payet Flop of the Match

    Saw his night curtailed by a highly questionable red card for simulation. Took the free-kick that led to the Marseille equalizer, but will rue his first booking.

  • Saber Khlifa

    Saber Khlifa

    Handed some more game time this evening, but could not make it count after drifting in and out of the game. Substituted.

    Roman Weidenfeller

    Was at fault for Marseille's goal. Caught unawares as Diawara headed in the equalizer.

  • Sokratis Papastathopoulos

    3.00

    Sokratis Papastathopoulos

    Strong performance from the Greek defender who kept Gignac quiet, ensuring that OM failed to have much luck in the final third.

  • Erik Durm

    0
    2.50

    Erik Durm

    The left back had an average evening. Despite a decent showing at the back, he was rather sloppy going forward and couldn't make deliveries off the left-wing work.

  • Marian Sarr
    6
    0
    3.00

    Marian Sarr

    Thrown in at the deep end, the 18-year-old defender put in a strong performance. Impressive showing.

  • Sebastian Kehl

    3.00

    Sebastian Kehl

    The BVB captain gave Marseille a lot of problems in midfield. His combative style frustrated the hosts, who couldn't produce much in the way of creativity.

  • Marco Reus
    3
    3
    3.00

    Marco Reus

    Got into great positions in and around the penalty box to really test Marseille, but must be kicking himself at the amount of chances that were missed.

  • Jakub Blaszczykowski
    2
    2
    2.50

    Jakub Blaszczykowski

    The Polish winger was another player who, despite seeing plenty of the ball, failed to test Mandanda amidst total control from the visitors.

  • Nuri Sahin
    2
    1
    3.00

    Nuri Sahin

    Utilized the pockets of space and the gaps left by OM - linking well with Lewandowski. Tired a little as the game progressed, but can be happy with his performance,

  • Kevin Großkreutz

    3.50

    Kevin Großkreutz Top of the Match

    Grosskreutz was perhaps the best player on the park after a fantastic evening. Grabbed the winner that put Dortmund through.

  • Henrikh Mkhitaryan

    2.50

    Henrikh Mkhitaryan

    Only displayed his quality in bursts - as displayed in the period after halftime. Despite seeing much of the ball, was pretty wasteful in the penalty box.

  • Robert Lewandowski

    3.00

    Robert Lewandowski

    Started magnificently by beating Mendes and Mandanda to put his side ahead. But he could and should have added to his solitary strike.
