Could do little about either goal, which were exceptional efforts, and had little else with which to occupy himself. Dealt with crosses well enough.
Got forward well enough, but like fellow full-back Fuchs, left his defensive duties behind all too often. Could have done more to stop both goals, but good on the whole.
Was excellent from his set piece deliveries, but like Uchida, neglected his defensive duties all too often, and Montpellier's wingers enjoyed a fruitful evening.
Marshalled the defence in good fashion and kept Camara quiet until his injury-time wonder goal. Had a presence in the Montpellier box too.
Played fairly well, but still looks as though he needs time to acclimatise to the Champions League. Has made a decent start to his Schalke career, all things told.
Unsurprisingly, the Greek defender dominated everything in the air, and cannot be blamed for either goal. Another mature showing from the youngster.
Put in an assured, if unspectacular performance in the centre of the park in the absence of Jones, but hardly set the match alight.
A masterful performance from the youngster, who equalised after an excellent run, and won the penalty with some unbelievable skill. His suspected broken arm was a tragedy.
Picked up a booking for a clumsy challenge, but otherwise showed a neat array of passing and set up numerous chances for his team-mates.
Put his matchday 1 penalty miss behind him with a superbly taken spot kick, but could have sealed the victory with a string of excellent, but squandered chances.
Handed a surprise start, the Finnish youngster looked out of place in parts. However, he came close to scoring with an angled drive that Jourdren did well to palm away.
Made some fine saves, not least from ferocious shots by Afellay and Huntelaar, but was beaten for pace by Draxler for Schalke's first.
The villain of the night. Failed to control Dortmund's attack in the first half, and was dismissed shortly after the break for a clumsy tackle that ended Draxler's night. Should have cost his side dearly.
At 35, he looks slightly too old for this level, and struggled to deal with Schalke's slick passing in the first 60 minutes.
Was caught flat-footed for Schalke's first goal, but recovered to put in an excellent performance after the break. Looks a cut about his defensive colleagues.
Failed to deal with Schalke's four-man midfield, and Holtby and Draxler enjoyed a good evening breaking from the centre of the park. Struggled for the most part.
His decision-making could have been better on one or two occasions, but all in all, he did a fine job, particularly when he set up Ait-Fana's goal. Was isolated all too often in the second half, however.
Showcased his ability with a superb run and shot, but was mostly quiet. Looked neat enough with the ball at his feet, but was withdrawn after 68 minutes.
Like Quinteros, did very little to repel Holtby and Draxler's charges forward, and struggled in midfield. His task became easier when Schalke became sloppy, though.
Shifted from his usual position in midfield to left-back due to injuries, and did not seem to like his new position. Failed to shackle the marauding Uchida.
Opened the scoring with a magnificent effort and was neat in possession throughout the match. Was frozen out of the second half as Schalke exterted more control though.
Had no meaningful contributions to his name, other than a stupid yellow card for 90 minutes. But in injury time, he scored a magnificent winner with a snap shot - an incredible finale.
