The keeper conceded five goals in the first half but was hardly at fault for his teams disappointing display. In fact, he made a couple of decent saves from Kuba and Grosskreutz. However, he let too many shots inside his near post.
He failed to hold up an organised back line with Sobiech as a porous Furth had the game out of reach after just 45 minutes. It will be a performance that he will be desperate to forget as soon as possible.
The left-back had an absolute nightmare as Piszczek and Kuba combine brilliant down his left flank. He could not deal with the pace of the BVB attack and was withdrawn early in the first half.
A terrible afternoon in the heart of defence as he was powerless to resist Dortmund's persistent, fluid attacking. His team were cut apart at will by the visitors and showed why they have been unable to win at home this season.
The Bulgarian failed to provide much cover to his defensive partners. He was beaten time and again by Gotze, allowing him in from the left unchallenged to get his two well-finished goals.
Tried to use his pace to pressurise the Dortmund defenders but as his team struggled to get the ball up that half of the pitch, his role in the game quickly waned. He failed to worry the opposition defence.
Did not offer any sort of attacking outlet on the right flank for his team. He did not possess the energy to help offer his team relief by carrying the ball forward and he rarely got back to help defend.
A speculative effort on goal in the third minute was his only positive influence on the game. He failed to screen the defence effectively and allowed Dortmund to dictate the game in the middle of the park.
Did not provide much cover to his defender and allowed the BVB forwards far more space than they should have been. However, in the second half he was more promising and managed to bag himself a goal.
Found himself completely overrun in midfield, struggling to influence proceedings in any manner. He spent much of the game chasing the ball down and was unable to provide any service or support to the forwards.
The striker had an a couple of chances to worry Weidenfeller but was unable to finish them. His movement and hold up play was fairly decent but his team lacked the commitment to worry the opposition.
The keeper did not often have anything to do but he kept his concentration for when he really needed it.. He made a couple of decent stops to keep Furth out of his goal when he was called upon.
A calm performance at centre-back but he seemed to struggle when coming under pressure. He did not read the game particularly well and seemed to be much more reactive to proceedings than usual.
The Brazilian won't have may easier afternoons than the one he spent at the Trolli Arena. He was never really stretched by the pace of Sararer and will be disappointed to have seen the clean sheet lost late on.
Combined positively with Kuba all afternoon to ensure a torrid time ensued for the left-sided Greuther Furth players. He put in a tireless 90 minutes but did not stretch the opposing defence quite enough.
The Polish international had a storming outing down Dortmund's right wing, regularly charging into the penalty area and causing trouble. Ended the game with one goal from a brave header and also three sublime assists.
An unforgiving performance from the midfielder as he went into every challenge fully-committed. However, his influence with the ball at his feet was far weaker and his passing left a lot to be desired.
An impressive afternoon for the young German, playing in a more advance role behind the striker. Gundogan bossed the play with his incisive passing while also grabbing a couple of fine goals himself.
An exquisite 45 minutes was all the 20-year-old needed to show his class. He opened the scoring with a clever finish after just 12 minutes and got another after once more drifting in from the left to devastating effect.
The on-loan midfield was given a large amount of freedom in midfield in which to operate. He used it well, distributing the ball to a high level but did not provide much of an attacking injection from deep.
Played as a makeshift left-back and certainly looked suspect when put under pressure in the second half. His positioning was far from perfect, though he did occasionally provide some decent support for his team-mates at the other end.
The striker displayed some quality in the movement was but unable to get in amongst the goals until the 80th minute. He had previously hit the bar, but his movement and link-up play was not quite as sharp as usual.
Replaced Abdul Rahman Baba in the 38th minute as Furth were embarrassed by Dortmund. He added a bit more solidity to his team and also ended the afternoon with an assist following a good move with Prib.
Came on for the appalling Varga at half time and played far better than the Bulgarian. He still struggled but kept a close watch on Bittencourt.
Replaced Gundogan with 22 minutes remaining but was unable to make his mark on the game. He was beaten far too easily by Prib as he scored Furth's only goal.
His replacement of Gotze at half time seemed to suck the life out of BVB, who were a far less dangerous team after the restart. Bittencourt's involvement from the left was minimal at best.
Came after Kehl just after the hour mark but failed to add any more sting back into Dortmund's stale play in the second half.
