Goal.com takes a closer look at the players involved in a frenetic clash at Signal Iduna Park, won by the visitors who came from behind to further dent BVB's title dreams

By Daniel Edwards

  • Roman Weidenfeller
    3
    10
    3.00

    Roman Weidenfeller

    Could have done better on both of Rudnevs' strikes, especially on the second when he allowed the ball to escape through his legs.

  • Mats Hummels
    3
    6
    2.50

    Mats Hummels

    Failed to impress in the centre of defence, given a torrid time by Rudnevs and nowhere to be seen when the striker added his second to end the game as a contest.

  • Lukasz Piszczek
    8
    4
    3.00

    Lukasz Piszczek

    Struggled to keep hold of Aogo, and his slack marking played a part in HSV's equaliser.

  • Felipe Santana
    0
    7
    2.00

    Felipe Santana

    A strong, solid performance from the centre-back, especially in the air, but was not comfortable dealing with HSV's fluid counters.

  • Sebastian Kehl
    2
    6
    2.50

    Sebastian Kehl

    Given a tough task keeping tabs on the in-form Van der Vaart, and on more than one occasion let the midfielder slip away.

  • Sven Bender
    2
    6
    2.50

    Sven Bender

    Badly caught out by Son as the Korean breezed past him on the way to handing Hamburg the lead.

  • Mario Götze
    6
    7
    3.00

    Mario Götze

    Will be kicking himself for failing to force at least a save from Adler after doing so well in the opening minutes. Dortmund's most potent threat on goal.

  • Marco Reus
    9
    6
    3.00

    Marco Reus

    A strangely muted performance from the talented winger, who was given little space to shine and his contribution was limited to sporadic involvement.

  • Jakub Blaszczykowski
    10
    6
    3.50

    Jakub Blaszczykowski

    Forced to play deep in his own half for large spells of the game, nullifying his quality as an explosive threat down the flank.

  • Nuri Sahin
    6
    9
    3.00

    Nuri Sahin

    Great expectations surrounded BVB's prodigal son on his first start, but a lacklustre display failed to get his side moving in the middle.

  • Robert Lewandowski
    10
    12
    1.50

    Robert Lewandowski Flop of the Match

    Showed his typical poaching skills to hand Dortmund the lead, but let himself down in a tussle with Van der Vaart that meant his game finished early.

Substitutions

  • Ilkay Gündogan
    4
    3
    3.50

    Ilkay Gündogan

    Brought on with Dortmund already chasing a lost cause, and could not turn the tide.

  • Julian Schieber
    1
    8
    2.00

    Julian Schieber

    Replaced Kehl with 25 minutes to go, but the game already appeared out of reach.

  • René Adler
    8
    1
    3.50

    René Adler

    Badly let down by his defence as Lewandowski burst through to score, but responded with a commanding, flawless display between the posts.

  • Dennis Diekmeier
    4
    2
    3.00

    Dennis Diekmeier

    Rather lucky not to become the second HSV man sent off after pulling down Reus as the last defender. Defended diligently and without fuss.

  • Heiko Westermann
    4
    4
    2.50

    Heiko Westermann

    Was badly at fault for Lewandowski's opener, guilty of ball-watching, but rallied from that slip to put in a solid display at the back.

  • Jeffrey Bruma
    3
    6
    2.00

    Jeffrey Bruma

    Saw red for a cynical foul on Reus when the midfielder was streaking through, although his tackle may have saved an equaliser.

  • Marcell Jansen
    7
    1
    3.50

    Marcell Jansen

    Linked effectively with Aogo throughout the game, firing Hamburg's counterattacks, and also dealt well with the ever-dangerous Kuba at the other end.

  • Dennis Aogo
    8
    1
    3.50

    Dennis Aogo

    An electric presence both down the flanks and in the middle. Set up Rudnevs' first strike, and was unlucky not to get his own name on the scoresheet.

  • Tomás Eduardo Rincón
    7
    2
    3.00

    Tomás Eduardo Rincón

    A lovely, understated performance from the Venezuela international, who quietly went about his business of disrupting the BVB midfield.

  • Rafael van der Vaart
    7
    5
    3.00

    Rafael van der Vaart

    More than a little fortunate to stay on the pitch in the first half, but his confrontational style and playmaking abilities unsettled Dortmund across the pitch.

  • Per Ciljan Skjelbred
    6
    1
    3.50

    Per Ciljan Skjelbred

    Was the recipient of a brutal tackle that earned Lewandowski a red card, changing the course of the game. A quiet presence, enabling Aogo and Van der Vaart to cause problems.

  • Artjoms Rudņevs
    9
    8
    4.00

    Artjoms Rudņevs

    A wonderful display from the No. 10, who netted two perfectly-executed finishes to see his team through to a key victory.

  • Heung-Min Son
    33
    3
    4.50

    Heung-Min Son Top of the Match

    Will remember this game chiefly for a wonderful solo effort that handed Hamburg a lead they never relinquished. Floated across the pitch, and always looked dangerous.

Substitutions

  • Slobodan Rajkovic
    4
    2
    3.50

    Slobodan Rajkovic

    Came on for Van der Vaart to keep the midfielder safe from a second yellow, as Hamburg enjoyed the comfort of a clear lead.

  • Tolgay Ali Arslan
    4
    2

    Tolgay Ali Arslan

    A late cameo for the midfielder to further shore up the HSV midfield.

  • Gojko Kacar
    2
    2

    Gojko Kacar

    Entered in injury-time for the excellent Son.
