Barely troubled in goal, left himself unsurprisingly unguarded for Hannover's solitary strike but otherwise a quiet afternoon.
Gave Dortmund a consistent extra dimension in attack, pouring forward and contributing some excellent crosses. That same spirit occasionally left his flank as a weak point at the other end.
A somewhat shaky, uncertain performance from the central defender. Let himself down with an aimless header that led to Hannover's goal.
The best of BVB's defensive effort, did not put a foot wrong and a masterful control of the offside trap meant that Hannover were caught out time and again.
An impressive showing from the wideman. Set up Lewandowski's opener with a well-placed cross, before his shot allowed the Pole to double his tally.
Did well as an improvised right-back. Given few problems when Hannover attacked down his flank, and was a regular fixture in the rival area, going close on more than one occasion.
A powerful, dominant performance from the midfielder. Always played on the limit when it came to tackling, but was fearless and controlled proceedings.
Always inventive, looking to break forward, but did not quite come off for the forward. Guilty of squandering an excellent chance early on.
Always a strong presence in midfield, and almost added a goal when a devilish volley whizzed inches past the post.
Took his goals with customary cool, finding himself in the perfect position to finish and also giving Hannover trouble across the pitch with his running.
Did not grab the attention like the rest of Dortmund's frontline, preferring to work more quietly - until appearing with a stunning finish that made the game safe.
The result could have been much less flattering for the away team if not for the man between the posts, who came up big on a number of occasions to frustrate Dortmund.
With Djourou missing in action, given the impossible task of trying to plug the defence almost single-handed. Made a couple of big interventions to keep the score down.
One of the few men in white who tried to take the game to Dortmund, pushing forward with the ball at his feet to admittedly mixed results.
Largely disappointing from the Tunisian, who redeemed himself with a clearance off the line to deny Gotze.
A game to forget for the Arsenal loanee. Tortured from start to finish by Lewandowski, and then lost Kuba in the build-up to the third goal.
An anonymous performance from the winger, who was shackled by Kuba and taken off at half time.
Always a danger with his dead-ball delivery, which led to Hannover's solitary goal, but could not reproduce that form in open play.
A tough opponent in the middle of the pitch, hit hard whenever he had the opportunity but, unlike many of his team-mates, fought for the game until the very last whistle.
Had one of Hannover's very best chances away from the goal, but could not take advantage with a mishit volley.
Took his goal well, and had the ball in the net on another occasion only to see it ruled out for an extremely marginal offside.

Occasionally raised pulses with his bursts out wide, but such moments were too rare to allow the winger to make a real impact on the match.
