Shaky in the first half, and nearly gifted Dortmund a goal with some shoddy judgement on set-pieces.
Caught out on the right once or twice after Dortmund brought on the likes of Kuba in the second half.
After looking assured for over an hour, the introduction of Dortmund’s all-star bench cast saw his production fall off ever so slightly, but he still managed to stand his ground more often than not.
Not afraid to throw his weight about at the back, disrupting the likes of Julian Schieber off the ball on more than one occasion. Physically imposing throughout.
J. van den Bergh
Became increasingly ambitious as the game wore on, finding himself in attacking positions with more regularity. However, he rarely produced the end product to make his effort worthwhile.
Took advantage of lax marking to nod home what turned out to be a consolation goal for his side late in the second half.
Isolated and frustrated for most of the game after what looked to be an encouraging start. Barely touched the ball in the second half.
His set-pieces were accurate enough, but other areas of his game were lacking as the Dortmund midfield controlled most of the game.
Spent large spells of the game on the periphery, but when on the ball, he was usually decisive. His deliveries from the flanks were threatening, and had his teammates reacted quicker, Fortuna may have well fared better in front of goal.
Wriggled into a few threatening positions as the second half progressed, and one snap shot was diverted away from danger in timely fashion by Kehl.
Really started the game strongly, with an unwavering willingness to get himself on the end of every ball near the Dortmund box. However, as the game progresses, his influence waned and he appeared far less threatening.
Saved the points for Dortmund right at the end with a world class stop on a header that seemed destined to be creeping in.
Strong in the air as always, and hardly put a foot wrong at the back during a comfortable outing. Provided a good threat at the other end of the pitch as well.
Had one gaffe where he was slow to react to a ball over the top, but was otherwise decent enough at the back, robbing the ball off the Fortuna attackers more than once.
Broke up play effectively in the middle of the park and did not overstep his role – always looking for a more creative teammate to lay the ball off to.
Beaten once or twice by Axel Bellinghausen on the flanks, but was otherwise relatively solid in his defensive duties, making no glaring mistakes.
Drafted into the left-back role he has fulfilled in recent weeks, Grosskreutz put in a willing shift as always, and was on hand to make some solid defensive plays in his own half of the field.
Heavily involved in Dortmund’s attacking endeavours, and increasingly found his poise as the match went on. Teed up Nuri Sahin for the opening goal, and his ability on the ball caught the eye.
Embarked on one stunning run down the right flank, beating two players, and generally gave a good account of himself in an advanced position. He just needed to be a little more consistent.
Controlled the game from his central position, and capped off a memorable game with an absolutely cracking effort from at least 30 yards out that bent right into the top corner. Set up Kuba for the clincher with a lovely slipped pass.
A bit hit or miss out on the left, as some intelligent moments in possession were undercut by a lack of dynamism and penetration from him, which concentrated play centrally at times.
Linked reasonably well with the players behind him, but did not always have the presence inside the box to lead the line in a truly impressive fashion. Picked up a yellow card for an inexplicable jump right into the Fortuna keeper.
