By Enis Koylu

  • Oka Nikolov

    Oka Nikolov

    Made a couple of decent saves in the first half, but was not made to work that much by the champions.

  • Carlos Zambrano

    3.00

    Carlos Zambrano

    Did a decent job at keeping Gomez quiet without standing out a huge amount. Continues to be a good cog in their defence.

  • Bastian Oczipka

    3.50

    Bastian Oczipka

    Did well at left-back, helping to keep Muller, Robben and Lahm largely quiet, save when the Bayern captain set up the goal.

  • Anderson
    0

    2.50

    Anderson

    Completely lost Schweinsteiger for the goal and failed to deal with Bayern's rotating forwards.

  • Sebastian Jung
    0
    0
    2.50

    Sebastian Jung

    Has been one of his side's star players this season, but failed to keep a hold of Shaqiri in particular.

  • Takashi Inui
    1
    0
    2.50

    Takashi Inui

    Came as close as anyone in his side to threatening Neuer, but his shooting was largely wasteful as he spurned a number of opportunities.

  • Martin Lanig
    0
    0
    2.00

    Martin Lanig Flop of the Match

    Started in the absence of Schwegler but barely touched the ball before being withdrawn after just 30 minutes.

  • Stefan Aigner
    0
    0
    2.50

    Stefan Aigner

    Save for a cross to Lakic as Frankfurt rallied late on, Aigner did not have much influence on the game, despite Alaba's disappointing showing.

  • Sebastian Rode
    0
    0
    2.50

    Sebastian Rode

    The reported Bayern and Dortmund target did not have the best of times in the centre of the park, failing to deal with Schweinsteiger and Martinez well.

  • Karim Matmour
    0
    0
    2.50

    Karim Matmour

    A complete passenger when he was on the pitch, the forward was rightly hooked after 75 minutes, and his replacement did far more than him.

Substitutions

  • Stefano Celozzi
    0
    0
    3.00

    Stefano Celozzi

    Came on after 30 minutes and fared better than Lanig.

  • Marc Stendera

    0

    Marc Stendera

    Handed 20 minutes at the end.

  • Srdjan Lakic

    Srdjan Lakic

    Forced Neuer into a great save late on.

  • Manuel Neuer

    0
    3.50

    Manuel Neuer

    A passenger for much of the match, the goalkeeper came up big in the closing stages, making a couple of superb saves.

  • Dante
    2
    0
    3.50

    Dante

    Did not let the Frankfurt attack have any sight of the Bayern goal until late on, when he faded somewhat.

  • Jerome Boateng
    2
    0
    3.50

    Jerome Boateng

    Saved Bayern with a fantastic tackle on Inui to deny the Japanese a goalscoring opportunity. Solid for the most part.

  • Philipp Lahm
    2
    0
    3.50

    Philipp Lahm

    With Frankfurt offering very little down the left, the Bayern captain was allowed to stride forward and set up Schweinsteiger's winner.

  • David Alaba
    2
    0
    2.50

    David Alaba

    After his superb showing in midweek, the Austrian was slightly disappointing today, missing the penalty with a poor effort.

  • Javi Martínez
    2
    0
    3.50

    Javi Martínez

    Kept things ticking over nicely in the centre of the park after returning to the starting line up.

  • Arjen Robben
    2
    0
    2.50

    Arjen Robben

    As ever, his running was threatening, but he was often wasteful in possession, scuffing a number of shots when he should have done better.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    2
    0
    3.50

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Was arguably his side's most threatening player in the first half, running at defenders and testing Nikolov.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    2
    0
    4.00

    Bastian Schweinsteiger Top of the Match

    Continued his fine form with another accomplished showing, forcing Nikolov into a great save before the break and scoring the winner with a lovely back heel.

  • Thomas Müller
    2
    0
    3.00

    Thomas Müller

    Won the penalty, but was fairly disappointing for the most part, drifting in and out of the game before being withdrawn after an hour.

  • Mario Gomez
    2
    0
    2.00

    Mario Gomez

    Failed to stake his claim with a really poor showing. Barely had a sniff of the ball and was rightly taken off.

Substitutions

  • Franck Ribéry
    2
    0
    3.00

    Franck Ribéry

    Performed fairly well without having much of an effect going forward.

  • Luiz Gustavo
    2
    0
    3.00

    Luiz Gustavo

    Kept things ticking over in the middle.

  • Claudio Pizarro

    Claudio Pizarro

    Dragged an effort wide late on.
