    Raphael Schäfer

    The 'keeper had a decent game unlike his Bayern counterpart. Not to blame for the Mueller goal and made some impressive stops to keep his side in the contest.

  • Horacio Javier Pinola

    The left-back looked impressive going forward but struggled to cope with the pace of Robben during his defensive duties.

  • Andreas Wolf

    Andreas Wolf

    Solid game from the experienced defender who dealt with Gomez's movement with ease for the majority of the game.

  • Philipp Wollscheid

    Philipp Wollscheid

    The centre-half with the dramatic rise from fifth division football to the Bundesliga continues to impress. He was committed throughout and looked good in the tackle.

  • Timothy Chandler

    Timothy Chandler

    Dealt well with Ribery this afternoon. He had a lot of the ball and used it wisely, often finding his team-mates with the simple pass.

  • Ilkay Gündogan

    Ilkay Gündogan

    The gifted midfielder played fairly well today. He was involved with the majority of Nuernberg's best attacking play and worked hard.

  • Timmy Simons

    3.00

    Timmy Simons

    The former PSV man kept things simple in the middle and kept to his task of marking Schweinsteiger. He gave 110% this afternoon.

  • Almog Cohen

    3.00

    Almog Cohen

    The Israeli midfielder worked very hard. Not every pass came off but he was still going in the 90th minute. Excellent goal line clearance from Klose's header.

  • Christian Eigler

    Christian Eigler Top of the Match

    Committed performance from the attacker who put a shift in upfront. Brilliant finish to hit the ball into the empty net from 35 yards out.

  • Mehmet Ekici

    Mehmet Ekici

    The midfielder playing against his parent club was fairly quiet today. Expected by many to be Nuernberg's bright spark, he disappointed a little.

  • Robert Mak

    Robert Mak

    The Slovakian midfielder started slow but improved as the game went on. Nice range of passing.

    Julian Schieber

    The striker on-loan from Leverkusen entered the game late on and struggled to impose himself.

  • Thomas Kraft

    Thomas Kraft Flop of the Match

    The young 'keeper had a nightmare outing. Looked shaky from the offset and gifted Nuernberg an equaliser with an appalling clearance.

  • Danijel Pranjic

    2.00

    Danijel Pranjic

    The versatile left-back continues to play at left-back but was ineffective in this game. Average defensively and not too impressive going forward. Replaced at half-time.

  • Holger Badstuber

    Holger Badstuber

    The defender has come in for some criticism recently but performed well today. He was good in the air and made several impressive challenges.

  • Luiz Gustavo

    2.50

    Luiz Gustavo

    Decent game from the Brazilian who looks more comfortable at centre-half every week. His positioning was top notch and he helped bring play out of defence very well.

  • Philipp Lahm

    2.50

    Philipp Lahm

    Solid game from the captain who started very brightly. Always looking to get forward and defended resolutely when needed.

  • Franck Ribéry

    3.00

    Franck Ribéry

    The Frenchman is joint-top in the assist rankings and can count himself unlucky not to add to his tally with several impressive through balls.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    The playmaker had an average game. He started well but seemed to fade as the match continued. His passing wasn't at his usual precise levels.

  • Thomas Müller

    Thomas Müller

    The youngster was busy this afternoon, making several great runs. Brilliant control and finish for Bayern's opener, a vital goal for the club.

  • Toni Kroos

    2.00

    Toni Kroos

    Disappointing game for the young midfielder who struggled to impose himself. Was replaced at half-time by Tymoshchuk.

  • Arjen Robben

    3.00

    Arjen Robben

    The Dutchman was lively throughout even if not at his flowing best. Brilliant assist for Mueller's opener and full of running throughout.

  • Mario Gomez

    2.50

    Mario Gomez

    Not a great game for the striker who struggled to hold the ball up and missed the few opportunities he did have.

Substitutions

  • Miroslav Klose

    Miroslav Klose

    Replaced Mueller with 25 minutes to go and looked lively. Unlucky not to score Bayern's second with a flicked header that was cleared off the line by Cohen.

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    The Ukrainian entered the game at half-time and was pretty poor. His passing was inconsistent while he left gaps in the middle of the park.

    Diego Contento

    The left-back was a slight improvement on Pranjic, looking more solid defensively.
