Player Ratings: Hannover 1-6 Bayern

Goal.com was on hand to cast a judgmental eye over proceedings at AWD Arena, where Bayern efficiently dispatched their foe, with Mario Gomez and Claudio Pizarro both scoring two

    Ron-Robert Zieler

    Was unfortunate to be stood behind such a leaky defence, as he conceded goal after goal, without really being able to make a save.

    Steven Cherundolo

    On his landmark game which brought him level with Hannover's record appearance holder, he failed to deal with the combination of Alaba and Ribery in the first half, and then Alaba alone in the second.

  • Johan Djourou

    Johan Djourou

    Saw a lot of the ball as his side were constantly pressed backwards but struggled to deal with Pizarro and Gomez, the former was simply too intelligent on the ball for Djourou to deal with.

    Christian Schulz Flop of the Match

    Similarly to his central defensive partner, he struggled to deal with Gomez playing on his shoulder and paid the price. He was especially at fault for Gomez' first, as he opened up a gap for Pizarro to play the through-ball.

  • Christian Pander

    Christian Pander

    His set piece deliveries were the highlight in an unforgettable game for the left-back, who was led a merry dance by Muller in the first half.

  • Konstantin Rausch

    2.00

    Konstantin Rausch

    Worked hard and was probably let down by the rest of his team. Put in a couple of great deliveries but wasn't aided by his forwards, who struggled to even get a shot on target.

  • Sergio da Silva Pinto

    1.50

    Sergio da Silva Pinto

    Fairly ineffectual and this led to his substitution at half-time. Failed to even break down a sub-standard Bayern midfield duo.

  • Andre Hoffmann

    Andre Hoffmann

    Took his goal well, as he was keen to follow in after Neuer's error.

  • Lars Stindl

    1.00

    Lars Stindl

    Was unfortunate to concede an own goal in the first half, as he had to make the challenge which resulted in him diverting Alaba's cross into his own net.

  • Jan Schlaudraff

    2.00

    Jan Schlaudraff

    Made a couple of bad decisions, opting to pass rather than shoot at good opportunities, but overall was full of good running and was perhaps too generous with the ball.

  • Mame Biram Diouf

    1.50

    Mame Biram Diouf

    Missed a glorious chance in the first half, as the opportunity seemed to overawe him, failing to make contact with a great cross. Was replaced after clattering into Neuer.

Substitutions

  • Didier Ya Konan

    2.50

    Didier Ya Konan

    Was full of running and often found himself in space on the right flank or at the back post. Although he carved out some space and time for himself, he was just lacking the finishing touch required - although he was a brighter spark for the hosts.

  • Manuel Neuer

    2.50

    Manuel Neuer

    Untested in the first half, bar one routine stop. Performed efficiently up until he flapped at Pander's powerful free kick, which allowed for Hoffmann to head home a consolation goal.

  • Daniel Van Buyten

    Daniel Van Buyten

    Played with composure and without any incident, Diouf didn't really get in behind the Bayern back four and this afternoon proved to be relatively easy for the Belgian.

  • Rafinha

    4.00

    Rafinha

    Linked up well with Muller in the first half, spreading the play down the right flank nicely but became less influential in the second half.

  • Jerome Boateng

    4.00

    Jerome Boateng

    Picked up a yellow in what was otherwise a faultless defensive display. He mopped up any loose balls into Diouf and his speed allowed for him to remain untroubled.

  • David Alaba
    3
    1
    4.00

    David Alaba

    Linked up fantastically with Ribery throughout, forcing the opening goal through getting into a fantastic position to make a cross. Tireless and faultless, Ya Konan didn't get past the Austrian once.

  • Franck Ribéry
    3
    1
    3.50

    Franck Ribéry

    Was influential in the first half, scared defenders with his pace and was unlucky to see a long-range effort strike the crossbar. Also could have picked up a penalty for being tugged back before he eventually was challenged by Zieler.

  • Luiz Gustavo
    3
    1
    4.00

    Luiz Gustavo

    Worked hard at the centre of Bayern, chasing back well and also distributing the ball to wide areas effectively.

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
    3

    3.50

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    His lack of pace showed at times but he marshalled the midfield well, stepping out to close angles and shut down space when required.

  • Claudio Pizarro

    0
    4.00

    Claudio Pizarro

    Made two fantastic assists in the first half, with the latter thread through the Hannover defence beautifully. Rightfully grabbed two deserved goals in the second, as he put in a classy display.

  • Thomas Müller
    3
    2
    4.00

    Thomas Müller

    Was perhaps a little bit selfish at times but proved tough to deal with in the first half due to his tricky footwork. Was substituted to save his legs for the Champions League.

  • Mario Gomez

    4.50

    Mario Gomez Top of the Match

    Took his two goals extremely well, with the only downside of his performance being that he was found offside on a few occasions. Clinical as always, and proved to be a valuable asset once again.

Substitutions

  • Arjen Robben
    6
    0
    3.50

    Arjen Robben

    Grabbed an assist, but wasn't as dangerous as his teammate Ribery had been in the first half. Scared defenders with his dribbling, but he lost the ball too many times through his desire to take the game to Hannover himself.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    4
    2
    3.50

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Ran the game brilliantly at the centre of midfield in the second half. He was tireless and tenacious, with the ability to thread several good balls in behind the Hannover defence.

  • Emre Can
    4
    1

    Emre Can

    Worked hard when thrown on, and although he didn't stand out compared to the likes of Shaqiri, he slotted into a solid midfield with ease.
