Goal.com takes a closer look at the action in the latest edition of the Revierderby, won by the hosts thanks to goals from Draxler and Huntelaar

By Daniel Edwards

  • Timo Hildebrand

    3.00

    Timo Hildebrand

    Came up with a handful of decent saves, but could do little to keep out Lewandowski from scoring after seeing his defence split wide open.

  • Benedikt Höwedes

    3.00

    Benedikt Höwedes

    Caught out on a number of occasions at the back, but was forgiven by some less-than-perfect Dortmund finishing. Finally punished with Lewandowski's goal.

  • Atsuto Uchida

    Atsuto Uchida

    A brilliant showing from the Japanese full-back, whose crossing was impeccable throughout the game. Architect of Schalke's two goals in the first half.

  • Joel Matip

    3.50

    Joel Matip

    Was unlucky to see his header cleared off the line by Mario Gotze after he looked set to score. Otherwise strong in defence, and dealt well with Lewandowski.

  • Sead Kolasinac

    3.00

    Sead Kolasinac

    Fought out an intriguing battle with Kuba on the left-hand side of defence, and held his own against the rapid winger although at times he was stretched.

  • Michel Fernandes Bastos
    5

    2.50

    Michel Fernandes Bastos

    Has been in excellent form since completing a move from Lyon, and showed it once more with some top distribution and marking.

  • Marco Höger

    3.00

    Marco Höger

    Never gave up in the middle, although occasionally was made to look second-best against an in-form Bender.

  • Jefferson Agustin Farfán
    6
    0
    3.50

    Jefferson Agustin Farfán

    As always, the Peruvian made life extremely uncomfortable for his markers with some dizzying dribbles. Used the ball well.

  • Julian Draxler

    0
    4.00

    Julian Draxler Top of the Match

    Showed his class in the opening minutes with a wonderful finish to put Schalke ahead. Drifted in and out of the encounter afterwards.

  • Roman Neustädter
    4
    0
    3.50

    Roman Neustädter

    Contained Dortmund's dynamic forwards as the away side threw everything into attack in the second half.

  • Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
    6
    0
    3.50

    Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

    Was unlucky to see a crashing volley saved by Weidenfeller early on, but made amends with a perfectly-placed header that doubled the lead. Taken off with an injury in the second half.

Substitutions

  • Christian Fuchs

    Christian Fuchs

    Entered towards the end, and kept the defence solid against a BVB onslaught.

  • Raffael

    2.00

    Raffael

    A late sub in place of Draxler to run down the clock.

  • Teemu Pukki

    3.00

    Teemu Pukki

    Thrown into the action in place of the injured Huntelaar. Squandered one great chance.

  • Roman Weidenfeller
    3
    3
    3.00

    Roman Weidenfeller

    Given little chance on either of Schalke's first-half efforts, as he was badly let down by his defence. A cracking save from Huntelaar among others kept his side in the game.

  • Neven Subotic
    0
    5
    2.50

    Neven Subotic

    The movement of Draxler and Huntelaar gave the centre-back big problems in the first half, although Klaas-Jan's enforced withdrawal led to a more accomplished display.

  • Mats Hummels
    0
    8
    1.50

    Mats Hummels Flop of the Match

    Struggled to impose himself at the back, with some poor marking allowing Schalke to race into the lead. No surprise when he was sacrificed at the break.

  • Lukasz Piszczek
    3
    2
    3.00

    Lukasz Piszczek

    Made some interesting forays into the opposition half, combining well with Kuba and putting pressure on the Schalke backline.

  • Marcel Schmelzer
    0
    6
    2.50

    Marcel Schmelzer

    Given the unenviable task of containing Farfan and Uchida on the left flank, and more often than not could not deal with the pair's direct running.

  • Sven Bender
    5
    1
    3.00

    Sven Bender

    The pick of the Dortmund midfield, as he excelled both physically and with the ball. Saw a goal ruled out, before playing a perfect pass for Lewandowski to convert.

  • Ilkay Gündogan
    3
    4
    2.50

    Ilkay Gündogan

    Was solid in the middle, but was well-contained by Schalke and unable to surge forward and test Hildebrand from deep.

  • Mario Götze
    7
    4
    3.50

    Mario Götze

    An impressive showing from the youngster, who for long spells of the game looked the man in yellow most likely to create. Popped up on his own line to save a goal.

  • Jakub Blaszczykowski
    4
    1
    3.00

    Jakub Blaszczykowski

    Posed a constant headache for the home team across the pitch with his running from deep. Squandered one excellent chance to rustle the net as he dragged wide.

  • Kevin Großkreutz
    0
    10
    1.50

    Kevin Großkreutz

    Struggled to justify his inclusion ahead of Reus with a tepid first-half display, and at the break was withdrawn for the star.

  • Robert Lewandowski
    8
    2
    3.50

    Robert Lewandowski

    Unlucky to see an effort in the first half chalked out for offside, but took his goal with customary class to bring BVB back into the match.

Substitutions

  • Moritz Leitner

    1.50

    Moritz Leitner

    Came on for Gundogan late on, but could not change the course of the game.

  • Marco Reus

    3.50

    Marco Reus

    Entered the game at the halfway stage, but again struggled to show his explosive best form.

  • Nuri Sahin

    3.00

    Nuri Sahin

    Came on at half-time, and contributed with some decent set pieces that kept Schalke guessing.
