Could do nothing about Reus' opening goal, and carried out his tasks efficiently, willing to come off his line to aid his defence whenever possible.
Fortunate to convert his free-kick, as it was an intended cross as opposed to a good finish. Provided Perisic with plenty of service and was solid against Aubameyang despite his lack of pace.
Competed well in the physical battle with Lewandowski, but was unable to prevent the Poland international from seeing plenty of the ball.
Covered excellently in the second half to deny the pacey likes of Aubameyang and Reus, while also getting forward to test Schmelzer.
Made two important blocks to deny Mkhitaryan, and was a solid presence at the heart of the Wolfsburg defence.
Caused a few problems in the later stages, finding pockets of space around the edge of the Dortmund box, and worked incredibly hard to pressure from the front.
Was a scrappy physical presence, as can be expected from the Brazilian, but didn't do too much in terms of shaping the game. Broke up play well.
A good engine in midfield, as the youngster would often find himself scrapping on the edge of the Wolfsburg box, before later arriving on the edge of the Dortmund area to try his luck at goal.
Reasonable ineffectual, as Schmelzer stood up rather well to the efforts of the German midfielder. Worked hard and chased lost causes.
The former Dortmund man certainly came back to haunt his old employers, delivering a few good crosses from the left and constantly keen to use a piece of skill to beat his man.
Worked incredibly hard to not give Dortmund's defenders too much time on the ball, and took his goal phenomenally, curling it home from 25 yards to give Weidenfeller no chance.
A reasonably solid game from the Dortmund goalkeeper, as he made a couple of good saves to keep his side ahead in the first half, and commanded his area well.
Unfortunate to leave the field early on through injury, but made a couple of important recovering challenges.
Covered well in the second half at times, but offered absolutely nothing offensively whatsoever. Not inventive, but worked hard.
Perhaps fortunate to have not picked up a second yellow card at some points, but the central defender was one of Dortmund's main sources of inspiration.
Gave away the free-kick which led to Wolfsburg's first goal, and didn't really get his foot on the ball too often. A rather ineffectual outing.
Took his free-kick excellently and was unfortunate to see another cannon off the crossbar. Got into some good areas but didn't quite get the service.
An early yellow card prevented the Germany international to breaking up play as he would normally do, and with Wolfsburg keen to get the ball wide he was often bypassed.
Worked hard, as can always be expected, but was given a stern test in the form of Perisic. Didn't often allow the Croatian to get beyond him to the byline, but allowed his former teammate to have too much influence.
Had a few half chances, but his weight of ball let him down at times. Threaded through some nice passes and looked lively, but only in small glimpses.
A scrappy performance from the Gabon international, as his pace caused plenty of problems, but his wasting of opportunities was lamentable.
Battled well and worked hard at the top of the Dortmund line-up, but wasn't often allowed to turn. Had a couple of half chances, but was mainly utilised for bringing others into play.
