Goal.com reviews all the action from an entertaining clash at Signal Iduna Park, as the two finalists in the Champions League held each other to a share of the points

By Daniel Edwards

  • Roman Weidenfeller
    32
    6
    3.50

    Roman Weidenfeller

    Had no chance to keep out Gomez's header after the Dortmund defense stood still, but came back with a fantastic stop to deny a second.

  • Neven Subotic
    17
    12
    2.50

    Neven Subotic

    Still fails to convince that he is the same defender he was before a long injury layoff. Awful marking let in Gomez for the equalizer.

  • Felipe Santana
    12

    3.00

    Felipe Santana

    Went within inches of scoring a second with a decent header that flew just over the bar. Defensively, mostly solid but got lost in the build-up to Gomez's strike.

  • Marcel Schmelzer
    24
    3
    3.50

    Marcel Schmelzer

    Ever dangerous working up and down the flank, combined well with Kuba and put Bayern under pressure with his delivery.

  • Sebastian Kehl
    11
    7
    3.00

    Sebastian Kehl

    Withdrawn for Reus with 20 minutes left as Dortmund chased all three points. Had previously been a steady if unspectacular figure.

  • Ilkay Gündogan
    19
    4
    2.50

    Ilkay Gündogan

    Took a tumble from Contento's challenge, and withdrawn early in the first half.

  • Jakub Blaszczykowski
    54
    4
    3.00

    Jakub Blaszczykowski

    Drifted from flank to flank, and always looked a threat with the ball out wide. Saw Grosskreutz when no-one else had and put in an excellent cross to set up the opener.

  • Nuri Sahin
    37
    15
    3.50

    Nuri Sahin Top of the Match

    Failed to get Dortmund's midfield firing on all cylinders, passed well but without attacking intent. Won the penalty with a decent shot.

  • Kevin Großkreutz
    25
    4
    3.50

    Kevin Großkreutz

    Was attentive and energetic all afternoon in a slightly unfamiliar role, and his volleyed goal was a thing of beauty as he timed the shot perfectly.

  • Robert Lewandowski
    64
    12
    3.50

    Robert Lewandowski

    Had a point to prove after a week of rumors linking him with Bayern, and went so close to adding a second only to be denied by Neuer. Also thwarted from the spot by another great stop.

  • Julian Schieber
    7
    41
    2.00

    Julian Schieber Flop of the Match

    An ineffective presence for his team out wide, too often went missing and did not combine effectively with the likes of Kuba and Lewandowski.

Substitutions

  • Sven Bender
    11
    5

    Sven Bender

    Played the final minutes in the place of Kuba

  • Moritz Leitner
    10
    7
    3.00

    Moritz Leitner

    Entered early for Gundogan but added little.

  • Marco Reus
    31
    5
    3.00

    Marco Reus

    Came to add an extra attacking dimension, but had precious little time to shine.

  • Manuel Neuer
    48
    2
    3.50

    Manuel Neuer

    Perhaps could have done better when he was surprised by Grosskreutz at the near post, but made up for it with two great stops from Lewandowski, one from the spot.

  • Daniel Van Buyten
    17
    3
    3.00

    Daniel Van Buyten

    Had a nervous first few minutes, looking uncomfortable in the middle, but recovered well and was strong from that point onwards.

  • Rafinha
    12
    30
    3.00

    Rafinha

    While his surges up-field occasionally left his defensive partners stretched on the right side, proved his worth with an excellent cross for Gomez. Sent off after an idiotic three minutes.

  • Jerome Boateng
    16
    12
    3.00

    Jerome Boateng

    Looked a little shaky and unsure in the middle of defense without the steadying influence of Dante. Handled for a penalty and was lucky to see Neuer save the kick.

  • Diego Contento
    11
    11
    3.00

    Diego Contento

    Guilty of drifting too far infield and letting Grosskreutz through for the opener, and lucky not to give away a penalty on Gundogan.

  • David Alaba
    19
    2
    3.00

    David Alaba

    Played further up the field than usual, on the wide left of Bayern's 4-2-3-1, and lost some of the explosive pace that makes him such a dangerous customer.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    31
    8
    3.00

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Guilty of squandering an excellent opportunity in the very first minutes of the game. Had the chance to play himself in contention for the final, and did not quite take it.

  • Luiz Gustavo
    16
    4
    3.50

    Luiz Gustavo

    Put in some big hits from the middle of the pitch, but suffered with the lack of big names around him and struggled to contain Dortmund.

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
    11
    13
    2.50

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    Solid enough alongside Luiz Gustavo, but took a number of efforts from range that never threatened Weidenfeller in the net.

  • Claudio Pizarro
    8
    13
    2.50

    Claudio Pizarro

    Failed to play a big part in the game as Die Roten's playmaker, saw little of the ball and drifted in and out of proceedings.

  • Mario Gomez
    23
    9
    3.00

    Mario Gomez

    The striker may have fallen a little out of favour with Jupp Heynckes, but there is no doubting his poaching ability. Terrific movement to escape his marker and head the leveler.

Substitutions

  • Patrick Weihrauch
    7
    4

    Patrick Weihrauch

    The briefest of cameos in injury time.

  • Emre Can
    11
    7
    2.50

    Emre Can

    Came in for Gomez following Rafinha's red.

  • Thomas Müller
    20
    6
    3.00

    Thomas Müller

    A late change for the disappointing Pizarro.
