Goal was on hand to witness Bayern's biggest ever away league win over Schalke, as the Bavarians move level on points with Borussia Dortmund

By Simon Harrison

  • Timo Hildebrand

    2.00

    Timo Hildebrand

    Had little to do other than pick the ball out of his net, in what was a disheartening outing for the Schalke goalkeeper. Let down by lax defending.

  • Benedikt Höwedes
    1

    1.50

    Benedikt Höwedes

    A bad day at the office, compounded by his inability to clear Mandzukic's header off the line.

  • Atsuto Uchida

    2.50

    Atsuto Uchida

    A hard-working performance, but couldn't handle the overlapping Alaba on top of Ribery in the second half.

  • Joel Matip
    3
    4
    1.50

    Joel Matip

    Horrendous marking for Mandzukic's goal, and looking nervous and possibly error-prone from that moment onwards.

  • Kevin-Prince Boateng
    9
    4
    2.50

    Kevin-Prince Boateng

    Went closest to scoring for his new side, testing Neuer twice in the early stages. Played a few nice balls to trigger counter attacks and was probably Schalke's best player.

  • Julian Draxler
    8
    2
    2.00

    Julian Draxler

    Struggled on the left hand side, playing a number of very poor passes and ending the night with a shot that went both high and wide.

  • Jermaine Jones
    2
    3
    2.00

    Jermaine Jones

    Anonymous for large portions of the game and completely lost Schweinsteiger for the opening goal.

  • Dennis Aogo
    2
    5
    2.50

    Dennis Aogo

    A poor performance from the young left-back as he struggled against Robben and Rafinha defensively, but did offer something going forward.

  • Jefferson Agustin Farfán
    4
    2
    3.00

    Jefferson Agustin Farfán

    Troubled Alaba at times with his pace and the Peruvian was the reason why Schalke did have opportunities on the break.

  • Roman Neustädter
    2
    2
    2.00

    Roman Neustädter

    A terrible performance in the first half, as the defensive midfielder gave possession away time after time.

  • Adam Szalai
    2
    4
    2.00

    Adam Szalai

    Struggled to lead the line on his own, and scuffed the only two clear opportunities that he was presented with during the game.

Substitutions

  • Christian Clemens
    2
    1
    1.50

    Christian Clemens

    Wasn't given enough time to have an effect on proceedings.

  • Marco Höger
    2
    1
    2.00

    Marco Höger

    Had a better time compared to Neustadter, but similarly struggled to impose himself on the game.

  • Manuel Neuer
    13
    1
    3.00

    Manuel Neuer

    A solid performance from the Germany international against his former side, as he made a couple of important saves early on.

  • Dante
    10
    2
    3.50

    Dante

    Solid in the air and proved far too physical for Szalai to deal with. Lucky to avoid giving away a penalty in the second half though.

  • Rafinha
    9
    2
    3.50

    Rafinha

    Got forward whenever possible and faced no real problems from Draxler, who had a very quiet game.

  • Jerome Boateng
    11
    2
    3.50

    Jerome Boateng

    A solid performance from the centre-back, as his pace and power allowed for some useful covering.

  • Philipp Lahm
    11
    2
    3.00

    Philipp Lahm

    Held the ball well and was always willing to cover or drop back, but his crossing wasn't as good as usual this evening.

  • David Alaba
    20
    2
    4.50

    David Alaba

    Provided the assist for Ribery's goal and was a constant threat on the left hand side, looking for the overlap.

  • Franck Ribéry
    16
    2
    4.00

    Franck Ribéry

    Quiet in the first half, but was everywhere in the second. Netted an easy goal and caused no end of problems for Schalke.

  • Arjen Robben
    11
    3
    3.50

    Arjen Robben

    Played more unselfish balls than would usually be expected from the Dutchman, and was unfortunate not to pick up an assist for the balls he supplied to Toni Kroos.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    13
    2
    3.50

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    An excellent performance from the central midfielder. Lost his man to nod home the opening goal.

  • Toni Kroos
    12
    2
    2.50

    Toni Kroos

    Another excellent game for Kroos, as he threatened early on with a couple of efforts, before sitting in the midfield and looking extremely neat and tidy for the duration of the game.

  • Mario Mandzukic
    15
    2
    3.50

    Mario Mandzukic

    Took his goal well, rising brilliantly despite suspect defending, and continues to prove that he can score goals in Guardiola's system.

Substitutions

  • Jan Kirchhoff
    8
    1
    3.00

    Jan Kirchhoff

    Was merely fresh legs in the centre while Bayern rode out a few late Schalke breaks.

  • Claudio Pizarro
    8
    1
    3.00

    Claudio Pizarro

    Took his goal well with arguably the easiest chance of the night, sliding the ball home into an open goal.

  • Thomas Müller
    11
    3
    3.50

    Thomas Müller

    Provided the assist for the fourth of Bayern's goals, squaring it for Pizarro to net easily.
