Player Ratings: Bayern Munich 2-2 Chelsea (5-4 on pens)

Romelu Lukaku misses the deciding penalty in a high-quality shootout after the Champions League winners and the 10-man Blues played out an epic two-hour battle

By Liam Twomey at the Eden Stadium

  • Manuel Neuer
    33
    21
    3.00

    Manuel Neuer

    Did not have much to do in truth. Was powerless to prevent Torres' opener, and held his nerve brilliantly to deny Oscar as the Brazilian bore down on goal after the break. Should have done better with Hazard's strike.

  • David Alaba
    27
    16
    3.00

    David Alaba

    His battle with Schurrle was one of two halves. The Chelsea man took the first, he took the second.

  • Dante
    21
    24
    3.50

    Dante

    Made an early error of judgement when he lost Torres in the build-up to Chelsea's opener and got away with a slip in the second half, but was his usual unruffled self otherwise.

  • Jerome Boateng
    20
    19
    3.00

    Jerome Boateng

    His long, floated passes stretched Chelsea early on, but his influence waned as Oscar pressed him more vigorously. Did his primary defensive duties reasonably well, though Hazard breezed past him to put Chelsea back in front.

  • Philipp Lahm
    25
    21
    2.50

    Philipp Lahm

    Deployed in midfield at the start he used the ball well, but he is no Schweinsteiger. Quietened Hazard a little once he shifted to his favoured right-back slot, but sold himself far too easily at the crucial moment.

  • Rafinha
    10
    36
    1.50

    Rafinha Flop of the Match

    Turned by Hazard for Torres' opener, he never got to grips with the classy Belgian and was replaced by Martinez with over half an hour of normal time to play.

  • Arjen Robben
    17
    27
    3.00

    Arjen Robben

    Not at his brilliant best, but then perhaps Cole didn't allow him to be. His shots, dribbles and passes were mostly foiled, though he did create one excellent chance for Muller.

  • Franck Ribéry
    58
    17
    4.00

    Franck Ribéry

    The newly-crowned Uefa Player of the Season, and his performance lived up to the billing. The one Bayern player who succeeded in ruffling Chelsea's massed defensive ranks, his brilliantly-taken goal shifted the momentum.

  • Toni Kroos
    32
    16
    3.00

    Toni Kroos

    Didn't work as the deepest-lying midfielder early on. Far more comfortable once Martinez was introduced, and recycled possession well without being too incisive.

  • Mario Mandzukic
    30
    26
    3.00

    Mario Mandzukic

    Led the line selflessly and worked his socks off, but didn't force Cech into a save until extra time, and the big man was equal to it.

  • Thomas Müller
    24
    20
    3.00

    Thomas Müller

    His off-the-ball movement was excellent but his finishing touch deserted him. Replaced by Gotze on 71 minutes.

Substitutions

  • Javi Martínez

    Javi Martínez Top of the Match

    Quite simply, his introduction changed the game. Bayern were no longer porous through the middle, many of Chelsea's key outlets disappeared and Hazard's influence waned - until he scored a superb goal in extra-time. But the Spaniard wasn't done, and levelled the match with a composed finish in the dying seconds.

  • Mario Götze
    27
    27
    3.00

    Mario Götze

    Didn't look totally sharp when he replaced Kroos, but drew the foul which saw Ramires dismissed.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    29
    25
    2.50

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Played 25 minutes of extra time but did not make the decisive difference.

  • Petr Cech
    135
    13
    4.00

    Petr Cech

    Made one excellent save to deny Ribery, but in the main a combination of poor Bayern finishing and disciplined Chelsea defending made his workload manageable. Beaten at his near post by a superb Ribery strike. Made some crucial stops in extra time - including a stupendous one from a Ribery free-kick - but could do nothing to stop Martinez sending the match to penalties.

  • Branislav Ivanovic
    95
    26
    3.00

    Branislav Ivanovic

    Bested Ribery in the air, troubled by him constantly on the ground. His technical limitations are also still a worry at times, even if his work rate is beyond rebuke.

  • Ashley Cole
    99
    22
    3.50

    Ashley Cole

    His personal duel with Robben was a source of constant fascination. One slip almost allowed Muller to level the scores, but overall the flying Dutchman didn't get much past him.

  • David Luiz
    121
    14
    4.00

    David Luiz

    Made a couple of rash decisions to try and intercept passes he had no chance of making, but defended his penalty area superbly on his first appearance of the season.

  • Gary Cahill
    90
    31
    4.00

    Gary Cahill

    Marshalled the defensive line with impressive authority in the absence of Terry, and made one last-ditch block to deflect a Muller shot wide that was world-class.

  • Ramires
    91
    66
    2.00

    Ramires

    Not a factor on the ball as Chelsea willingly ceded possession, but did his bit to hassle Bayern whenever he could. Rightly saw red for a reckless lunge on Gotze.

  • Frank Lampard
    57
    86
    3.50

    Frank Lampard

    Got precious little time on the ball and played high risk passes when he got it, but held his position admirably and calmed his team-mates. His set-pieces were a threat too, provided he wasn't shooting.

  • Oscar
    80
    46
    3.50

    Oscar

    Harried Kroos and Lahm relentlessly and used the ball intelligently when it fell to him. Missed a glorious chance to give Chelsea back the lead when Schurrle played him in.

  • Eden Hazard
    131
    66
    4.50

    Eden Hazard

    Immense in the first half, turning Rafinha in the build-up to Torres' goal and committing Bayern defenders almost at will. His influence waned a little after Martinez's introduction, though he still had enough in the tank to score a brilliant goal in extra-time.

  • Fernando Torres
    151
    18
    3.00

    Fernando Torres

    Took his goal with such calmness and poise that one wonders what has been going on for the past two years. Rarely threatened the goal after that though.

  • Andre Schürrle
    111
    17
    3.50

    Andre Schürrle

    Had the edge on Alaba at both ends of the pitch early on and picked out Torres brilliantly for the opening goal. Gradually found himself pinned back by waves of Bayern attacks, but defended doggedly until he was withdrawn.

Substitutions

  • John Terry
    86
    30
    2.00

    John Terry

    Replaced Hazard with seven minutes left of normal time, denying his haters the chance to mock him for being in his full kit at the final whistle.

  • John Obi Mikel
    71
    33
    3.50

    John Obi Mikel

    Replaced Schurrle when Ramires was dismissed, and provided a solid partner in the defensive midfield shield for Lampard.

  • Romelu Lukaku
    53
    67
    2.50

    Romelu Lukaku

    Replaced Torres in extra-time and injected pace power and freshness into the Chelsea frontline. Hit a poor spot kick and was punished in a high quality shootout.
