Player Ratings: Bayern 4-1 BATE Borisov

Goal.com rates the players as the Bavarians topped their Champions League group with a comfortable 4-1 victory over the Belarusians, who are bound for the Europa League

By Rupert Fryer

  • Manuel Neuer

    Manuel Neuer

    Made a smart stop early on but was largely untroubled before BATE's late consolation.

  • Daniel Van Buyten

    Daniel Van Buyten

    The big Belgian has been speaking of his desire to force his way back into the side on a regular basis, but had little to do for most of his evening.

  • Rafinha

    3.00

    Rafinha

    To usurp Philipp Lahm is a tall order, but the Brazilian may well have have to do more if he is to make his coach consider switching his captain to the left.

  • Jerome Boateng

    1.50

    Jerome Boateng Flop of the Match

    Came in for the injured Holger Badstuber and had little to do for much of the evening until he saw red for a needless two-footed tackle on Vitali Rodionov shortly after half-time.

  • Diego Contento
    27
    0
    3.50

    Diego Contento

    Looked calm and controlled throughout, and showed of his pace and timing in the tackle to deny Vitali Rodionov a clear run on goal in the opening stages.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    75
    1
    4.00

    Xherdan Shaqiri Top of the Match

    The young Switzerland international showed a verve many of his team-mates lacked, doing extremely well to look up and pick out Gomez for the opener, before scoring a deserved goal in the second half.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    36
    1
    4.00

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Kept his side moving and while his own movement caused problems for BATE all evening. Did brilliantly to set up his team's second.

  • Toni Kroos
    29
    1
    3.50

    Toni Kroos

    Showed his class whenever he got on the ball, but wasn't involved as much he or his coach would have liked.

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
    22
    1
    3.00

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    Sat deep and moved the ball well, but had little to do in terms of the combative aspect of the game he loves so much.

  • Thomas Müller
    30
    1
    3.50

    Thomas Müller

    Offered very little for much of his evening, but popped up when it mattered to grab his side a goal when they needed it most.

  • Mario Gomez
    40
    1
    4.00

    Mario Gomez

    Made his first Champions League appearance of the season, showing great movement to open the scoring.

Substitutions

  • Dante
    27

    3.50

    Dante

    Came on following the dismissal of Boateng and looked as accomplished as he always does.

  • David Alaba
    31
    0
    3.50

    David Alaba

    Played the final 25 minutes and took his first ever Champions League goal extremely well.

  • Andrey Gorbunov
    2
    3
    2.50

    Andrey Gorbunov

    Made a smart stop from Kroos before the break, but his reluctance to venture out from his line contributed to Bayern's second and third goals.

  • Artem Radkov
    1
    3
    2.50

    Artem Radkov

    Dealt well with the physical battle posed by Gomez when he attempted to run the channels, but wandered from his position as the game became stretched.

  • Maksim Bordachov
    1
    3
    2.00

    Maksim Bordachov

    Showed a willingness to get forward whenever possible. His distribution was good and he may well have caused Bayern some problems had he seen more of the ball. Unfortunately, he did not and he came under increasing pressure the longer the game wore on.

  • Egor Filippenko
    1
    4
    2.50

    Egor Filippenko

    Could certainly have done more to help defend crosses into his side's area, but did well at times against Gomez. Took his goal extremely well, in fairness.

  • Denis Polyakov
    1
    4
    1.50

    Denis Polyakov

    Was too weak in the challenge with Shaqiri that led to Bayern's opener. Did concede a smart free-kick when the Swiss wriggled free in the first half, but that that was the highlight of his game underlines just how out of his depth he looked.

  • Aleksandr Volodko
    1
    3
    2.00

    Aleksandr Volodko

    Could have done more to stop Bayern's runners from midfield, and need to be more physical with Schweinsteiger.

  • Aliaksandr Hleb
    2
    6
    1.50

    Aliaksandr Hleb

    Looked slick on the few occasions his side managed to retain possession, but those occasions were few and far between. A shadow of the player who once shone so brightly for Arsenal.

  • Edgar Olekhnovich
    1
    3
    2.00

    Edgar Olekhnovich

    Like those around him, he saw little of the ball and failed to impose himself on the game.

  • Dmitri Baga
    1
    3
    2.00

    Dmitri Baga

    Neat in possession and tried to get his team moving the ball whenever possible, but struggled in a midfield that was largely dominated by the Germans.

  • Artyom Kontsevoi
    1
    3
    3.00

    Artyom Kontsevoi

    Remained disciplined in a deep midfield and could have given his side the lead after 10 minutes, but his shot lacked power.

  • Vitali Rodionov
    1
    3
    2.50

    Vitali Rodionov

    Lacked pace to truly trouble the Bayern defence on the break, but did his best to provide a focal point for this side, dropping deep in an attempt to link the play when possible. Still, made little impression on the game.

Substitutions

  • Renan Bressan
    1
    3
    2.50

    Renan Bressan

    Came on for the last 30 minutes but failed to impose himself on the game after his side quickly fell three behind.

  • Roman Vasilyuk
    1
    3
    2.50

    Roman Vasilyuk

    Was fighting a losing battle following his late introduction and offered little a side that had already lost the game.
