Bayern Munich created few chances in front of the goalkeeper and as a result he had little to do. Timed his runs off his line well, and was a commanding presence in the box.
Let Gomez slip on a couple of occasions, but was generally solid as he impressed with his reading of the game. The more solid of the two centre-backs.
Did well to shut out Pranjic on the flank, but offered very little in attack. Often opted for a simple pass instead of going for something ambitious.
Had some trouble dealing with Robben and Muller when the pair teamed up on him, but was generally sound defensively. Had very little opportunity to make runs in the final third.
An awful game by the young Czech, who failed to impress at both ends of the pitch. Was pinned back by Robben on the wing, and failed to produce anything memorable in the attacking third as well.
Was below his usual standard as he often found himself a step behind Gomez. Was caught out of position on a few occasions, and should have challenged Robben for the opener.
The veteran put in a great shift as covered a lot of ground and fought for every ball. Stifled Kroos' efficiency in the centre of the pitch.
Saw very little of the ball, and when in possession his passing was sloppy and inefficient. Spent most of the game chasing Bayern Munich's players.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man had a torrid time as he misplaced several passes and was inefficient in the tackle. Replaced by Cohen in the second period.
The midfielder filled in at right-back for Nurnberg and generally did well. Let Pranjic get past him on one occasions, but generally stifled the Croatian. Did not have much to do against Ribery.
The striker was largely neutralised by Badstuber and was often forced to drop deep to receive the ball. Was strong in the air, but did not get many chances.
Had a few lapses in concentration that nearly led to goals. First he misjudged a shot that hit the bar, and moments later slipped, leaving his goal exposed.
Made some crucial interventions when Nurnberg threw everything in attack in the final minutes. Was strong in the tackle and good in the air.
Did not have much to do at the back, but did not use the time to contribute in the final third. Looked isolated from the game for large periods.
The captain did very well on both sides of the pitch, and played a crucial role in the opener as he had a powerful shot blocked. Made a few telling passes.
Had very little to do as Nurnberg rarely threatened Bayern Munich's goal. Showed good positioning and was solid in the air.
The Germany international did very well in the centre of the pitch as he sprayed the ball with ease and conducted Bayern Munich's play. Created a few decent chances for his team-mates.
The Ukraine international delivered a sound performance as he displayed good work-rate and read the game well. Showed decent passing.
The Croatian was largely invisible for most of the game, and, baring one good cross that led to a chance for Robben, did nothing meaningful. Replaced by Ribery in the second half.
Showed superb dribbling and technique, but his finishing let him down on all, but one occasion. Easily waltzed past Pinola numerous times and made a few good passes.
Created a goal which was wrongly disallowed, and hit the bar with a header from close range. Showed good positioning and was decent in possession.
The attackers showed persistence throughout the match as he created a handful of chances after winning back possession. Made a few great runs and was very dangerous.

Replaced Didavi late on, but failed to impress.

Is still easing back to form and was not at his usual level.
Came on to help keep Nurnberg at bay in the final minutes of the game.
The Frenchman was supposed to add a spark to Bayern Munich's left flank, but failed to do so.
