Goal.com takes a closer look at the talent on show at Borussia Park, as the North Rhine-Westphalia rivals played out a well-fought draw

    Marc-Andre ter Stegen

    May have conceded the penalty, but was one of his side's star performers, making a string of saves as BVB laid siege to his goal late on.

  • Filip Daems

    3.00

    Filip Daems

    Dealt with BVB's double-pronged attack down the right well enough, but did not get forward in support of Wendt as much as he would have liked.

  • Álvaro Domínguez

    2.50

    Álvaro Domínguez

    Followed up his recent poor run of form with another bad showing here. Was given a torrid time by Gotze's direct running in the first period, in particular.

  • Oscar Wendt
    1
    0
    2.50

    Oscar Wendt

    Got down the left well to help set up the equaliser, but will be disappointed not to exploit the space left by Piszczek more.

  • Tony Jantschke

    Tony Jantschke

    Did a great job of ruining Reus' Borussia Park homecoming, shackling his former team-mate brilliantly, never affording him the room to express himself.

  • Martin Stranzl

    2.50

    Martin Stranzl

    Missed an excellent chance to score for his side with a header that went straight at Weidenfeller, and like Dominguez, was given a hard time by Gotze's running.

  • Lukas Rupp
    1
    0
    3.00

    Lukas Rupp

    Found himself in a couple of good positions thanks to his industry on the right, but all too often, he failed to take advantage. Still, he put in a decent enough shift for his side.

  • Thorben Marx
    0
    0
    3.00

    Thorben Marx

    Was up for the fight in midfield, and but for his yellow card for a clumsy challenge on Gotze, could be very happy with his showing.

  • Havard Nordtveit
    1
    0
    3.00

    Havard Nordtveit

    Nearly scored a freak goal which almost crept into the net over Weidenfeller. Broke forward well from midfield, particularly after the break, without abandoning his defensive station.

  • Amin Younes

    4.00

    Amin Younes Top of the Match

    Took his goal superbly, and it was no less than the youngster deserved for a great performance. Was also the first Gladbach player to test Weidenfeller shortly before the goal, and never stopped running.

  • Mike Hanke
    0
    1
    2.50

    Mike Hanke

    Was never really involved with the match prior to his withdrawal just after the hour-mark, showing a couple of lethargic touches.

Substitutions

  • Roel Brouwers

    2.00

    Roel Brouwers

    Given about 30 seconds at the end.

  • Luuk de Jong
    1
    0
    3.00

    Luuk de Jong

    Brought an effort and craft to the attack that Hanke really failed to provide before him.

  • Peniel Kokou Mlapa
    0
    0
    2.00

    Peniel Kokou Mlapa

    Missed one great chance to win the game, firing into the side-netting when he should have buried it.

  • Roman Weidenfeller
    2
    0
    3.50

    Roman Weidenfeller

    Could do little about the goal, but was generally composed throughout, making a couple of decent saves, without having all that much to do.

  • Neven Subotic
    1
    0
    3.00

    Neven Subotic

    Like Hummels, he defended fairly well as Gladbach failed to trouble Dortmund truly for the most part, but will be disappointed that the cross for the goal was taken into Younes' path via a deflection off him.

  • Mats Hummels
    2
    0
    3.00

    Mats Hummels

    Had a great first half, fending away a host of promising attacks, as BVB hunted in packs, but was forced off with a minor thigh injury at half-time.

  • Lukasz Piszczek
    0
    2
    2.50

    Lukasz Piszczek

    Beaten for pace by Wendt in the build-up to the goal, and was fairly quiet until his withdrawal in favour of Nuri Sahin late on.

  • Marcel Schmelzer
    2
    1
    3.50

    Marcel Schmelzer

    Brought his usual mix of tidy defending and endless drive to the match, helping create counter-attacks, but not abandoning his post at the back.

  • Sebastian Kehl
    1
    0
    3.00

    Sebastian Kehl

    Missed an easy chance with the last kick of the game, but was generally steady in possession throughout.

  • Moritz Leitner
    0

    2.00

    Moritz Leitner Flop of the Match

    Was neat and tidy enough when afforded a rare start, but really did not stand out at all. Was unsurprisingly withdrawn in favour of the more attacking Bajner.

  • Ilkay Gündogan
    2
    0
    3.50

    Ilkay Gündogan

    As ever, he dictated the game in the middle of the park, helping drive his team forward, and had a couple of decent-looking efforts.

  • Mario Götze
    2
    0
    3.50

    Mario Götze

    Was a constant thorn in Gladbach's side throughout the first half, winning and scoring the penalty with a run of real quality, and had a couple of late threatening efforts saved by Ter Stegen.

  • Marco Reus
    1
    1
    2.50

    Marco Reus

    Stole the show when the two sides met earlier this season, but failed to replicate the performance on his Borussia Park homecoming. His link-up play was not to its usual standard, and his set pieces were poor.

  • Kevin Großkreutz
    1
    0
    2.50

    Kevin Großkreutz

    Brought his usual industry to his side, but snatched at a couple of decent chances late on.

Substitutions

  • Felipe Santana
    0
    2
    3.00

    Felipe Santana

    Replaced Hummels, and made a couple of errors early on, playing in Younes. Saw the equaliser deflect off him.

  • Nuri Sahin
    2
    0
    2.00

    Nuri Sahin

    Afforded 10 minutes or so late on.

  • Bálint Bajner
    1
    0
    2.00

    Bálint Bajner

    Brought on to try and give his side the edge in the box, he failed to do much on his Bundesliga debut.
