Came scampering off his goalline to head clear one long punt forward, but otherwise, it was a quiet day at the office for him.
D. Van Buyten
Hardly the most challenging game for him, as he rarely, if ever, dealt with anything outside of the routine.
Much like his central defensive partner Van Buyten, Dante found things almost embarrassingly easy at the back. However, he did make one vital interception on a dangerous cross by Steiber in the second half.
A sound, if not overly dynamic, game from the fullback, who attended to his sparse defensive responsibilities with little fuss, while providing a decent option out wide on the overlap.
Put in a few good tackles to quickly snuff out potential Furth counterattacks before they gathered any momentum. However, his defensive contributions were rarely needed, and he spent most of his time pushed high up the field supporting the attack to good effect.
Tracked back well to mop up the rare Furth foray into his half, and was quick to provide the back four with an outlet to release the ball. Never pushed outside of his comfort zone, though, it has to be said.
Provided plenty of good moments out wide for the home side, laying on a few glorious chances for his team-mates. Constantly kept the Furth defence guessing with his ability to get to the byeline and to cut infield.
Had one or two unsuccessful pops towards goal from long range, and though he was composed and comfortable with his passing, he never really exerted his authority on proceedings.
Controlled the midfield with consummate ease alongside Martinez, spraying countless passes around and operating a a base off which his team could build attacks. Came close with one shot that Hesl saved.
Put in a dependable shift out wide. Though his shooting was a bit off, he was on point when creating chances for his team-mates, and set up the first for Mandzukic with a low dinked cross.
Opened the scoring with a well-struck shot that still required a glaring gaffe by Hesl to find its way into the back of the net. Doubled his tally with a header from a corner. Not the most awe-inspiring display leading the line, but gave his team exactly what they needed to clinch victory.
A terrible outing between the posts, as he gifted Bayern the opener with an untidy spill into his own net, before missing an entirely saveable header from Mandzukic for the home side’s second.
Lost sight of Mandzukic on the opener, but otherwise recovered well to make a lot of clearances and interceptions that helped to keep the score down.
Made a series of clearances as Bayern kept attacking, and though he was beaten in the air by Mandzukic for the second goal, he did not often let his guard down otherwise.
Made a vital clearance off the line to prevent a surefire Bayern goal, and though he was beaten a few times, he fared relatively well compared to the rest of his team.
Fashioned probably the visitors’ best chance of the game with a teasing low delivery across the face of goal that was hacked away from danger. Otherwise, his influence on the game was negligible.
Like most of the midfield, he was most often seen chasing shadows as Bayern ran rings around him. A trying time for him today.
Won the ball a handful of times when squaring up to his opponent on the flanks and was generally solid defensively, though he found almost no opportunity to go forward.
Offered his side little threat down the right flank and was made to help his fullback in defence for the vast majority of the 90 minutes.
Completely overrun in the centre of the park and spent most of the game off the ball, trying in vain to close down his Bayern counterparts.
As the main holding midfielder, he did manage to make a few clearances when pushed into his own area, but the quality on display from Bayern was simply too much for him to handle at times.
Completely starved of service all game long and was forced to subsist on a diet of hopeless punts forward. Never came remotely close to making an impact.
