Goal.com evaluates everyone on show at the Allianz Arena as the Bavarians continued their relentless march to the Bundesliga title with another devastating victory

By Daniel Edwards

  • Manuel Neuer
    24
    5
    3.00

    Manuel Neuer

    Had little to do in the Bayern net, but found himself caught out when Ignjoviski's cross split open his defence and let in De Bruyne.

  • Dante
    24

    3.50

    Dante

    An otherwise dominant display was only somewhat spoiled by an uncharacteristic error, as the Brazilian was caught in possession in his own area and Werder took advantage.

  • Jerome Boateng
    21

    3.00

    Jerome Boateng

    Was not given too much grief at the back, as Bayern controlled proceedings across the pitch.

  • Philipp Lahm
    45
    4
    3.00

    Philipp Lahm

    Shined with two wonderful assists for Robben and Ribery, in a fine attacking performance from the full-back.

  • Diego Contento
    28
    3
    3.50

    Diego Contento

    Was caught out of position for Werder's consolation but, for the most part, he did an excellent job filling in for the Alaba on the left-hand side.

  • Franck Ribéry
    49
    0
    4.00

    Franck Ribéry

    Was happy to take a backseat as Robben and Gomez stole the show early on, but was always on hand with some excellent play around the area. Then capped a terrific performance with a great volley.

  • Javi Martínez
    52
    0
    4.50

    Javi Martínez

    Put his side in the driving seat with a powerful header that was totally in keeping with what was an awesome performance in the middle of the park from the ex-Athletic man.

  • Arjen Robben
    85
    0
    4.50

    Arjen Robben Top of the Match

    A top-class display from the Netherlands international, who was at the heart of Bayern's attacking play. Set up three goals and got the ball rolling by volleying home the opener midway through the first half.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    51
    2
    4.00

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    The Switzerland international revelled in the space afforded to him around the area, failing to get his name on the scoresheet but connecting well with his attacking partners.

  • Luiz Gustavo
    36
    1
    3.50

    Luiz Gustavo

    Distributed intelligently throughout, proving an effective replacement for Schweinsteiger and spurring Bayern's attacking stars onwards.

  • Mario Gomez
    44
    3
    3.50

    Mario Gomez

    A tireless display from the forward, who had a point to prove as he seeks a regular place. Occasionally guilty of wasting the ball but deserved his two goals.

Substitutions

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
    25
    2
    3.00

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    Came in for Martinez just after half time, and continued the good work of the Spaniard.

  • Claudio Pizarro
    24
    1
    3.00

    Claudio Pizarro

    A brief run-out at the end for the Peruvian, against his former club.

  • Sebastian Mielitz
    3
    4
    2.50

    Sebastian Mielitz

    Watched his defence disintegrate before his eyes as Bayern ran rampant. Could do little to stem the flood of goals in a painful match but then, hardly covered himself in glory either.

  • Assani Lukimya
    1
    3
    2.50

    Assani Lukimya

    Along with the rest of the Bremen backline, had an afternoon to forget as the goals rained down on the visitors.

  • Lukas Schmitz
    2
    4
    2.00

    Lukas Schmitz

    Given a torrid time on the left by Lahm and Gomez, and was also at fault for the first goal when he failed to pick up the charging Robben.

  • Sebastian Prödl
    3
    10
    1.50

    Sebastian Prödl Flop of the Match

    Made life even harder for Werder just before half-time by stupidly getting himself sent off. It was a hammber blow for the visitors as he had held his own in the middle, but a bone-headed challenge on Gomez meant a red was inevitable.

  • Theodor Gebre Selassie
    1
    4
    2.00

    Theodor Gebre Selassie

    Was one of the better defenders in a Werder backline that leaked goals, although that's not saying much. Still, was unlucky to see an attempted clearance spiral past his own keeper for an own goal.

  • Kevin De Bruyne
    20
    3
    3.00

    Kevin De Bruyne

    Provided the one bright spot for Werder in an otherwise extremely disappointing runout with an intelligent finish at the far post.

  • Aaron Hunt
    2
    2
    3.00

    Aaron Hunt

    Sacrificed at half-time to shore up the Werder defence following Prodl's expulsion and Schaaf's decision was a tad surprising as Hunt had shown some bright moments in the first period.

  • Zlatko Junuzovic
    1
    4
    2.50

    Zlatko Junuzovic

    Overwhelmed by Martinez in the middle, could not compete and also conceded the free kick that led to Bayern's second goal.

  • Aleksandar Ignjovski
    3
    2
    3.00

    Aleksandar Ignjovski

    A strong presence in midfield for Werder, and a well-placed cross following Dante's mistake meant that his team would at least make the scoresheet.

  • Marko Arnautovic
    4
    2
    3.00

    Marko Arnautovic

    Did well in exploiting the space left by Lahm when the full-back pushed up, but too often could not take advantage.

  • Nils Petersen
    3
    3
    1.50

    Nils Petersen

    Completely isolated up front, could not make an impact and was a virtual spectator throughout the match. Must try harder.

Substitutions

  • Mateo Pavlovic
    3
    2
    2.50

    Mateo Pavlovic

    Given a thankless task coming off the bench into defence, and was run ragged in his 45 minutes.
