Player Ratings: Bayern Munich 4-0 Schalke

Goal.com assesses the talent on show as the Bavarians took a huge step towards the Bundesliga title by sweeping aside the stricken Gelsenkirchen outfit

By Enis Koylu

  • Manuel Neuer

    Manuel Neuer

    Kept yet another clean sheet, but it was not through his own merit - he quite simply could not have done less.

  • Dante

    3.00

    Dante

    His presence was barely felt as Bayern simply had next to no defending to do. Tidy enough in possession when the ball came to him.

  • Jerome Boateng

    3.00

    Jerome Boateng

    Had no work to do, but did just fine when called into action. Made one good interception late on as Schalke searched for a consolation.

  • Philipp Lahm

    3.00

    Philipp Lahm

    Did not bomb down the right as he usually does, but did not have to. Had next to nothing to do in one of the quietest games a Bayern defender will ever have.

  • David Alaba

    4.50

    David Alaba Top of the Match

    With little to be done in the way of defending, the Austrian youngster had license to get forward, and get his name on the scoresheet twice.

  • Franck Ribéry
    8
    1
    4.00

    Franck Ribéry

    A constant thorn in the side of Schalke, the Frenchman was his usual probing self, terrorising Howedes down the right and getting the ball rolling by winning the penalty.

  • Javi Martínez
    7
    0
    3.50

    Javi Martínez

    Did not have to anchor the midfield as much as usual, and pushed forward a little bit. Great in possession, but understated in all.

  • Arjen Robben
    9
    0
    3.50

    Arjen Robben

    Ultimately was not able to get his name on the scoresheet, but still had a fruitful evening, working hard down the right and setting up Gomez for the fourth.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    12
    0
    3.50

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Did not show any signs of injury, and put in a lovely performance, scoring the second goal with a beautiful free kick. Helped to set up the fourth with a great dinked ball over the top of the defence.

  • Toni Kroos
    6
    0
    3.00

    Toni Kroos

    Did not shine as brightly as he has in other matches this season, but can still be relatively proud of his efforts. Neat and tidy in possession, before being given a rest for the last 20 minutes.

  • Mario Gomez
    7
    1
    3.00

    Mario Gomez

    Put in a decent claim for a regular place in the side with some great forward play, particularly after the break, when he set up Alaba's second and got one of his own.

Substitutions

  • Rafinha
    3
    1

    Rafinha

    Brought on with 20 minutes, he had nothing to do.

  • Diego Contento
    4
    0

    Diego Contento

    Given a rare appearance when the game was over.

  • Luiz Gustavo
    3
    1

    Luiz Gustavo

    Made one good tackle in his 18-minute cameo.

  • Timo Hildebrand
    0
    1
    2.00

    Timo Hildebrand

    Made a good save to deny Ribery early on, but could do nothing about any of the goals. A night to forget for everyone involved with Schalke, not least the goalkeeper.

  • Benedikt Höwedes
    1
    0
    2.00

    Benedikt Höwedes

    Played at right-back, he failed to keep up with the hungry Ribery and Alaba combination down the Bayern left. Will be eager to forget this one.

  • Christoph Metzelder
    0
    1
    1.50

    Christoph Metzelder

    Given a torrid time by the Bayern front line, who ran riot throughout. The 33-year-old simply didn't look up to the pace.

  • Joel Matip
    0
    1
    2.00

    Joel Matip

    As with the other Schalke defenders, the Cameroon international will be eager to put this match behind him. Nothing more than anaemic at the back.

  • Sead Kolasinac
    1
    1
    3.00

    Sead Kolasinac

    Making a rare appearance, the youngster gave away the free kick from which Schweinsteiger scored, but was one of the few who looked eager to get forward.

  • Michel Fernandes Bastos
    0
    1
    2.00

    Michel Fernandes Bastos

    Had the only two Schalke shots of note; a half-decent effort which hit the side-netting, and a comical scooped free kick which went well over.

  • Marco Höger
    1
    2
    2.00

    Marco Höger Flop of the Match

    Conceded the penalty which led to the first goal and was booked in the second half. Visibly frustrated throughout.

  • Jermaine Jones
    0
    1
    2.50

    Jermaine Jones

    His usual boisterous self in midfield, he did his best to quell the waves of Bavarian attacks, but faced an uphill battle throughout.

  • Tranquillo Barnetta
    0
    1
    2.00

    Tranquillo Barnetta

    Given a rare chance to impress, the Swiss winger hardly touched the ball, and was smothered on the rare occasion that he got possession.

  • Roman Neustädter
    0
    1
    2.00

    Roman Neustädter

    Could not keep up with the multitude of Bayern attacks as the Bavarians' midfielders surged forward.

  • Teemu Pukki
    0
    1
    2.50

    Teemu Pukki

    Did his best to chase down every ball, but so much of the match was played in his own half, he could not make an impact.

Substitutions

  • Jefferson Agustin Farfán

    Jefferson Agustin Farfán

    Was not fit enough to start, and looked it.

  • Raffael

    2.50

    Raffael

    Did not fare any better than Hoger when brought on.

  • Edu

    Edu

    Barely touched the ball during his brief cameo.
