Player Ratings: Bayern Munich 3-0 Augsburg

Pep Guardiola's side made Bundesliga history thanks to top displays in particular from Franck Ribery and Jerome Boateng, while Kevin Vogt was overwhelmed for the visitors

    Manuel Neuer

    Bayern Munich and Germany's number one won't have many easier days than this as he didn't have to produce a single stop, the most arduous parto f the day being the 50-metre run to congratulate Boateng on the opener.

  • Dante

    Dante

    A dominant display from the Brazilian as he showed his aerial prowess at both ends, setting up Boateng for the opener with his deft downwards header. Couldn't have produced a more dominant display at the back, but had very little to do due to his side's all-round dominance.

  • Rafinha

    Rafinha

    Looking more and more the part in the FCB starting XI as he continues at right back while captain Lahm is moved to a midfield holding role. Continued to get forward down the right too, mimicking his team-mate Alaba when he could.

  • Jerome Boateng

    Jerome Boateng

    Produced a fantastic finish for the opening goal, the kind you would only expect from the right foot of a seasoned striker. Had very little else to concentrate on though as Bayern's defence conentrated on mopping up counter-attacks and recycling possession.

  • Philipp Lahm

    Philipp Lahm

    Still to look 100 per cent convincing in that advanced role in midfield. Composed on the ball as ever, but when Javi Martinez occupies the holding role, Lahm's inability to create like his fellow midfielders is rather highlighted.

  • David Alaba

    David Alaba

    The partnership which the Austrian has struck up with Ribery is a joy to behold and once again they provided moments that would make even the Augsburg fans gasp with approval. Got in behind the back four several times today but the killer pass just didn't click for him this afternoon.

  • Franck Ribéry

    Franck Ribéry Top of the Match

    The Frenchman gave another reminder as to why he is considered a front runeer for the Ballon D'Or along side Messi and Ronaldo. Caused havoc constanty from cutting off his left-wing berth. Won the free-kick and finished it emphatically to seal the victory before we had even reached the break.

  • Javi Martínez

    Javi Martínez

    Martinez took the holding role ahead of Lahm and it was easy to see why when the Spaniard performs so elegantly in the role. Seamlessly moving from defence to attack. Ghosted into the box late a couple of times and was unlucky not to find the target late on.

  • Mario Götze
    4
    1
    3.00

    Mario Götze

    The former Borussia Dortmund man got the opportunity to start ahead of Robben but may feel like it was an opportunity missed as he failed to see much of the ball throughout, with play concentrated down Bayern's left flank. Was unlucky not to get his toe on Ribery's cross-shot at one stage.

  • Toni Kroos
    6

    3.00

    Toni Kroos

    Sat in central midfield with Lahm and was constantly looking to link up with Ribery to his left. Again went in search of wondergoals with long-range efforts but none of them were coming off today.

  • Mario Mandzukic
    6
    0
    2.50

    Mario Mandzukic

    Hassled and harried the back four of Augsburg but didn't get much of a sniff in front of goal all game as he was closely monitored by the central-half pairing of Klavan and Callsen-Bracker

Substitutions

  • Jan Kirchhoff

    Jan Kirchhoff

    Came on late and was denied his first Bundesliga goal by a smart Hitz stop.

  • Arjen Robben

    Arjen Robben

    A substitute for Gotze, he tried to forge opportunities on several occasions but found himself constantly shut out by Klavan.

  • Thomas Müller

    Thomas Müller

    Sealed the win from the spot with a coolly taken penalty in stoppage time.

  • Marwin Hitz

    Marwin Hitz

    It is never going to be an easy trip for a goalkeeper when he visits the Allianz Arena and Hitz must have feared the worst when he conceded after just six minutes. Rallied with some decent stops though, including a memorable fingertip effort to deny Robben.

  • Paul Verhaegh

    Paul Verhaegh

    Had to deal with the irresistible partnership of Alaba and Ribery down Augsburg's right flank. Was never made to look foolish by the pair though and largely stood his ground, although was done for a pace on several occasions.

  • Ragnar Klavan
    1

    3.00

    Ragnar Klavan

    The Estonian certainly made his presence felt around the park with some meaty challenges on Mandzukic and Ribery. Also frustrated Robben when the Dutchman came on, blocking every effort the winger attempted.

  • Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker

    3.00

    Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker

    Proved a tricky customer for Mandzukic to elude as the central defender gave the Croatian very little time to himself. Another who was happy to pitch in with a few last ditch tackles as Augsburg looked to deploy damage limitation tactics.

  • Matthias Ostrzolek
    1

    3.00

    Matthias Ostrzolek

    A confident performance from the full-back who gave Mario Gotze very little change during his hour on the pitch. Was penalised very late on, and very harshly for a handball that led to the final goal.

  • Kevin Vogt
    1

    2.50

    Kevin Vogt

    Lost in a midfield battle that Augsburg were inevitably set to lose, Vogt's contribution largely consisted of tracking back and making sure the white wall of shirts in front of the Augsburg goal was that much thicker.

  • Daniel Baier

    Daniel Baier Flop of the Match

    Sat in the holding position and did contribute a link between defence and midfield on the odd occasion where the visitors were able to break, but was largely consumed with the task of breaking up play in front of his own area.

  • Tobias Werner

    Tobias Werner

    One thing that Augsburg did see plenty of was set pieces, but be it a corner or free kick they were let down by Werner's delivery time and again. Even in open play when he got down the left he still couldn't beat the first man. A performance to forget perhaps.

  • Jan Moravek

    2.50

    Jan Moravek

    A tireless display form the Czech international as he burst a gut on occasions to keep up with dangerous counter-attacks from the hosts. Eventually had to go off after his face felt the full wrath of an Arjen Robben shot, albeit via the knee of Klavan.

  • Andre Hahn

    Andre Hahn

    Easily the best performance out there in a white jersey, Hahn was everywhere in the opening period. Whenever Munich lost possession, it seemed to be Hahn and whenever Augsburg had it in advanced position it seemed to be him on the ball too. Just a final ball lacking at key moments.

  • Halil Altıntop

    Halil Altıntop

    A very frustrating afternoon for Alintop who cut a forlorn figure up top for Augsburg. Abandoned and isolated from his team-mates, there might have even have been a hint of relief when he was finally substituted.

Substitutions

    Jeong-Ho Hong

    Came on late on but had no time to make an impact.

    Arkadiusz Milik

    Came on for the isolated Alintop. Had a couple of chances but couldn't take either of them.

  • Sascha Mölders

    Sascha Mölders

    Came on for the final 10 minutes but had no time to leave his mark.
