Player Ratings: Bayern Munich 2-0 Hannover

Goal reviews the players on show at the Allianz Arena as Bayern sailed to a comfortable 2-0 victory over Mirko Slomka's side.

By Mohammed Ali

  • Manuel Neuer

    3.00

    Manuel Neuer

    Picked up a 100th clean sheet in the Bundesliga with an efficient performance. Read the game well and denied Ya Konan and Sobiech.

  • Daniel Van Buyten

    3.00

    Daniel Van Buyten

    Solid at the back and managed his defensive duties well. Limited Hannover to a handful of chances in a good performance.

  • Rafinha

    3.00

    Rafinha

    Good presence on the wing. Didn’t really get forward on occasions, but denied the likes of Bittencourt the chance to advance at the other end. Comfortable game.

  • Jerome Boateng
    3
    5
    2.00

    Jerome Boateng

    Jittery at the back, and was perhaps the weakest of Bayern players this afternoon. Struggled with the physical presence of Ya Konan.

  • Philipp Lahm
    7
    0
    3.00

    Philipp Lahm

    Stationed in front of the defence once more, Lahm did well to spread the play and fashion a couple of openings. Limited Hannover in the middle well by breaking up their attack.

  • David Alaba
    6
    1
    3.50

    David Alaba

    Afforded some good service from Kroos and Lahm out onto the wing. His pace and good decision making proved to be Hannover’s downfall on the wing.

  • Franck Ribéry
    5
    2
    2.50

    Franck Ribéry

    The Frenchman was admittedly not at his best this afternoon despite scoring Bayern’s second. Showed some good touches, but not at his influential best.

  • Arjen Robben
    12
    1
    4.00

    Arjen Robben

    Unlike Ribery however, Robben excelled on the wing. The architect of many of Bayern’s chances, posed Hannover quite a few problems. Finished strongly too.

  • Toni Kroos
    7
    0
    3.50

    Toni Kroos

    A good performance from the versatile midfielder. As comfortable on the ball as you’d expect, dropping deep to get involved.

  • Mario Mandzukic
    10
    1
    3.50

    Mario Mandzukic

    Shrugged off a poor opening for Bayern to excel in the second half. Showed great understanding with Robben to latch onto his through-balls. Calmly slotted in Bayern’s first.

  • Thomas Müller
    6
    0
    4.00

    Thomas Müller

    Another of the Bayern forwards who enjoyed a hugely productive afternoon. Effective just outside the area, linked up with Mandzukic well.

Substitutions

  • Dante
    4
    0
    3.00

    Dante

    Replaced the poor Jerome Boateng midway through the second half, and did well.

  • Jan Kirchhoff
    2
    0

    Jan Kirchhoff

    Came on for Kroos with minutes to go.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    4
    1
    2.50

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Replaced Franck Ribery in the last 10 minutes.

  • Ron-Robert Zieler
    0
    1
    2.00

    Ron-Robert Zieler

    The young German goalkeeper disappointed for Hannover tonight. Beaten easily for Bayern's two goals, and wasn't at his best today.

  • Hiroki Sakai
    0
    1
    2.50

    Hiroki Sakai

    Good presence on the flank initially, but lost ground to Alaba who threatened from the wing increasingly as the game wore on. The Japanese full-back failed to maintain his good start.

  • Salif Sané
    0
    1
    2.50

    Salif Sané

    The former Nancy defender was bright on occasions, but gave Bayern space to work on the edge of the area. Nevertheless, recovered almost always with good blocks.

  • Sebastien Pocognoli
    0
    1
    2.50

    Sebastien Pocognoli

    The Belgian defender had a shot which flew over the bar, but a limited presence on the wing going forward.

  • Marcelo
    0
    1
    2.50

    Marcelo

    Struggled to track Muller's movements in the box, but recovered to deny Bayern in the second half. A decent game, but perhaps should've done better with the second.

  • Leon Andreasen
    1
    0
    2.50

    Leon Andreasen

    Almost scored a stunning own goal when Robben’s ball deflected off his foot and forced a good save from Zieler. Nevertheless, industrious in midfield, but tailed off.

  • Edgar Prib
    0
    1
    2.00

    Edgar Prib

    The winger wasted many of Hannover's few chances with poor decision making his main fault. No end product from his dribbling.

  • Lars Stindl
    1
    0
    3.00

    Lars Stindl

    Impressed alongside Andreasen, Stindl drove Hannover forward with a good passing range when in possession.

  • Leonardo Bittencourt
    1
    0
    3.00

    Leonardo Bittencourt

    The former Dortmund player was one of the better players out of the visitors' starting eleven this afternoon. Unlike Prib, more efficient on his side, and linked up well from the flank.

  • Artur Sobiech
    2
    0
    3.00

    Artur Sobiech

    Couldn't really assert his authority on the match. Had one great chance from a corner in the first half, when his header pinged wide of Neuer's goal.

  • Didier Ya Konan
    0
    1
    2.50

    Didier Ya Konan

    The industrious attacker was unlucky not to have scored after seeing his effort come crashing off the crossbar. Showed some good touches, but did little.

Substitutions

  • Christian Schulz
    0
    0

    Christian Schulz

    Entered play in the second half, but made little impact.

  • Manuel Schmiedebach

    Manuel Schmiedebach

    Came on for Ya Konan late in the second half.

  • Jan Schlaudraff

    0

    Jan Schlaudraff

    Late substitute for Prib, but had little time to make an impact.
