Goal.com rates the talent on show as the Bavarians strode into the DFB-Pokal semi-finals with a superb win over their rivals at the Allianz Arena

By Enis Koylu

  • Manuel Neuer

    Manuel Neuer

    Dortmund challenged the former Schalke keeper very little, but he was equal to everything they threw at him, and was dominant in the air from crossed.

  • Dante
    6
    1
    4.00

    Dante

    The Brazilian continues to be an unlikely star for the Bavarians. Helped keep Dortmund's fearsome attack away from his goal, and was a threat in the opposition box too.

  • Daniel Van Buyten
    3

    3.00

    Daniel Van Buyten

    Did not shine quite as brightly as Dante, but put in a solid performance at the heart of defence. Perhaps should have scored from a corner late on.

  • Philipp Lahm
    3
    1
    3.50

    Philipp Lahm

    Set up the goal by showing superb industry and putting Schmelzer under pressure, and kept Reus very quiet at the back.

  • David Alaba
    3
    1
    3.00

    David Alaba

    Was not at the level at which he had been playing in recent weeks, but still put in a tidy performance, without standing out too much.

  • Javi Martínez
    5
    1
    3.00

    Javi Martínez

    Could have been sent off for an ugly challenge on Lewandowski in the second half, but was otherwise impressive, coming close to scoring with a superb volley.

  • Arjen Robben

    4.00

    Arjen Robben Top of the Match

    Exorcised some demons with a superb strike that flew over Weidenfeller, and was a constant threat to the Dortmund goal with his direct running.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    5
    1
    4.00

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Showed a superb range of passing, not least a lovely chipped ball to set up Martinez for a volley in the first half, but faded slightly late on.

  • Toni Kroos
    4
    1
    3.00

    Toni Kroos

    Will be disappointed not to have scored, having been presented with some great chances, but his crossing from set pieces caused Dortmund plenty of problems.

  • Mario Mandzukic
    3
    1
    3.50

    Mario Mandzukic

    Put in another monster shift up front, helping to pressurise the Dortmund defence, and although he did not find the net or test Weidenfeller, can be very happy with his efforts.

  • Thomas Müller
    6
    1
    3.50

    Thomas Müller

    Challenged Schmelzer down the Dortmund left time and time again, and was a constant threat once more, prior to his withdrawal as Heynckes looked to close out the game.

Substitutions

  • Jerome Boateng
    3
    1

    Jerome Boateng

    Given a few seconds at the end.

  • Luiz Gustavo

    Luiz Gustavo

    Came on to make things tight in midfield.

  • Mario Gomez

    Mario Gomez

    Made a cameo appearance at the death.

  • Roman Weidenfeller
    5
    1
    4.00

    Roman Weidenfeller

    Made an incredible number of saves to deny the likes of Martinez, Kroos, Dante and Robben, and was only beaten by a wonderstrike from the Dutchman.

  • Lukasz Piszczek
    1
    1
    3.00

    Lukasz Piszczek

    Got up and down the right well enough, and almost set up a late equaliser with a lovely cross. Missed Kuba on the wing.

  • Felipe Santana
    1
    2
    2.50

    Felipe Santana

    Almost scored a comical own goal with by heading a Lahm cross to Weidenfeller, and looked off the pace throughout.

  • Marcel Schmelzer
    1
    1
    2.00

    Marcel Schmelzer

    Hesitated in the box, which ultimately led to the goal, and was given a hard time down the Bayern right throughout by Muller and Lahm.

  • Ilkay Gündogan
    4
    1
    3.00

    Ilkay Gündogan

    Tried to change the game with his neat array of passing, and tested Neuer on a couple of occasions.

  • Mario Götze
    4
    3
    3.00

    Mario Götze

    Looked lively early on, running at Bayern and trying to set up team-mates, but faded late on when the game opened up a bit more.

  • Marco Reus
    1
    3
    3.00

    Marco Reus

    Did not have the time or space to influence the game as he has in recent weeks, and was withdrawn in favour of the more physical Schieber late on as Klopp tried to change things.

  • Kevin Großkreutz
    1
    3
    1.50

    Kevin Großkreutz Flop of the Match

    One of his poorest performances of what has been a below-par season for him. He was completely anonymous prior to his withdrawal on the hour mark.

  • Sven Bender
    2
    1
    3.50

    Sven Bender

    Worked as hard as ever in the first half, repelling wave after wave of Bayern attacks. Did not deserve to come out on the losing side.

  • Robert Lewandowski
    1
    4
    2.00

    Robert Lewandowski

    Dortmund missed him over the weekend, and were made to miss him once more. Did not show up and had no effect whatsoever on the match.

Substitutions

  • Jakub Blaszczykowski
    1
    1
    3.00

    Jakub Blaszczykowski

    Fared better than Grosskreutz, but was ultimately unable to carve out an opening.

  • Julian Schieber

    Julian Schieber

    Missed a great stoppage-time chance to level things with a header.
