M. ter Stegen
Nothing he could have done about Javi Martinez's cool finish, but he was beaten at his near post by Ribery for Bayern's second. The Frenchman's second-half volley was unstoppable, though, and, in truth, Bayern could have had eight by the end if it had not been for Ter Stegen.
Went forward to open the scoring three minutes in, losing his marker before beating Neuer to an Arango free kick. Defended stoutly, thereafter, and was unlucky to end on the losing side.
Struggled terribly to contain Ribery, who ended the game with two goals and two assists, but he was not alone in that regard. Kept battling right until the end.
Just like Jantschke, struggled badly with the trickery and movement of Bayern's wide players. Indeed, he was left chasing shadows at times.
Initially did a decent job alongside Stranzl but was pulled out of position with greater regularity the longer the game went on.
His brilliant left foot caused chaos throughout, the Venezuelan creating the opener for Stranzl with the most inviting of in-swinging free kicks. Also played his part in Gladbach's third with a sumptuous outside-of-the-foot ball to Herrmann. Also very nearly caught Neuer out with a swerving second-half set piece.
Showed plenty of poise in setting up Nordtveit for Gladbach's third, waiting until precisely the right time before picking out his Norwegian team-mate with a wonderfully weighted pass. Remained a threat until he ran out of steam.
Scored Gladbach's third, finishing in a very composed fashion after being put through by Herrmann, and had a decent game overall, using the ball well.
Played an integral role in Gladbach really sticking it up to Bayern in midfield, particularly during the first half. But he, like a lot of his team-mates, eventually faded.
Announced his arrival in the Bundesliga with a hat-trick on his first start, against Mainz last weekend, and impressed early on here, setting up strike partner Hanke for a goal with a fine through-ball. However, he disappeared in the second half.
Double Gladbach's advantage with a composed finish, after going one-on-one with Neuer, and continued to ask questions of the Bayern defence before going off to a deserved standing ovation late on.
Left horribly exposed by his defence for the first time this season. Indeed, there was little he could have done about any of Gladbach's goals during a crazy opening quarter. However, he was solid overall, as per usual.
Typified the uncharacteristically sloppy nature of Bayern's performance, with the Brazilian gifting Gladbach a goal by passing the ball straight to Hrgota.
One of the few Bayern defenders to have played anywhere near their usual level, the captain was left dumbstruck by the chaos unfolding inside him but gradually brother some calm to his backline before teeing up Ribery for Bayern's sensational equaliser early in the second half.
Recovered well after what was a nervy display during the opening quarter. Touch-and-go, though, whether he will hold onto his place in the starting line-up next weekend.
Alaba did not look remotely comfortable during a torrid opening 20 minutes for the visitors but got better as the first half wore on and, by the end, he was bombing forward in fine fashion.
Just did not show up for opening half hour but went close to scoring shortly before the break with a snap-shot some 12 yards out. Improved immeasurably in the second period and his immaculately controlled volley ultimately proved the winner.
The best player on the pitch by some distance. The Frenchman almost single-handedly kept the Bavarians in the game, setting up Javi Martinez for their first goal before then netting himself with a low finish. He then levelled matters with the most sweetly struck volley before teeing up Robben for the last goal.
One of the key components in Bayern's fightback, finishing in ridiculously composed fashion after being put through by Ribery. Then set about taking charge of the midfield, which he did to predictably devastating effect.
Has to accept some blame for Bayern's shocking start as he and Martinez failed to get to grips with Gladbach in midfield, or provide his stuttering defence with enough protection. However, just like die Roten, he improved significantly and was the one driving his side forward in the second half.
Showed some neat touches on the ball but missed a succession of great chances to get on the scoresheet.
Was all fancy footwork and intelligent running, helping haul his side back into the match with a clever lay-off that Ribery fired home.
