Called into action more than he has been in recent games, but made his work look easy. Always alert to position himself properly make life easy for himself, be it saving shots or claiming crosses. Still has not conceded in nine games.
Conceded a couple fouls on Sam and was fortunate not to be carded in the early minutes. Had less trouble later on, and was extremely active on the right flank.
D. Van Buyten
A surprise inclusion, the Belgian justified his starting role with an immense free kick. Booked for a needless foul away from the ball, but perhaps as a surprise, his lack of pace was not exposed as it has been in the past, and his height was a major advantage in preventing Kiessling from taking down balls in the air. Nearly had a brace, but had his header saved.
The second-busiest man on the day in terms of ball contact, the captain had a relatively quiet day, and was never really tested by Balitsch, Danny or Bellarabi.
Let Kiessling get away from him once but was outstanding afterward. Won almost every challenge he had to make, but anticipated play well and was always in the right place at the right time. Possibly the world's most in-form defender at the moment.
There was a sequence in the first half that summed his performance: he received the ball amid multiple defenders deep in his own half, turned past them, and within seconds received a return pass at the byline. Schweinsteiger these days is absolutely everywhere.
The Frenchman is in the form of his life now; how he created the opener with such apparent ease speaks volumes of his class. As he goes, so go Bayern.
Made an immense challenge to stop Kiessling, and had a great goal called back late in the game. Extremely clean in possession and inventive with some of his passes, he was just what Bayern needed alongside Schweinsteiger in defensive midfield.
Less influential perhaps than he has been in recent games, and rather quiet as most of Bayern's play went through the wings. Substituted late.
Opened the scoring with his second goal in as many matches, and absolutely roasted Castro. Played more crosses than any other player, even if they were not always accurate, and was a real catalyst for the Bayern attack.
Off the pace in his 100th competitive appearance for Bayern. Was caught offside several times and never posed much of a threat on goal; he was substituted in the second half.
Cannot be faulted for the goals conceded. The youngster did very well to make a few saves, and his decision-making to come off his line was of the quality that one might expect expect from a much more experienced player.
Good in his tackling, but was unable to forge an effective partnership with Renartz. The better of the two, but still not convincing. On the attacking end, had one attempt test Neuer.
D. da Costa
Given a very difficult task in his Bundesliga debut, and when he was first tested by Ribery, failed to stop the Frenchman as Bayern opened the scoring. Recovered somewhat, but was replaced early in the second half.
Looked bright in the early proceedings as he got the better of Rafinha, but never was able to make much of his opportunities and only had one attempt on goal all game. Booked late for a foul committed in frustration.
Used as a winger primarily to add a bit more support against Ribery and Lahm, he was somewhat effective defensively but the Frenchman had a good game and Balitsch never got forward. Not the best from the former Hannover man.
As the playmaker, it was his duty to create chances on goal, but he failed to do so. Had plenty of the ball, but did absolutely nothing of value with it.
Worked hard alongside Bender in the midfield, but was ultimately out-classed. Cannot be faulted individually, as the battle was lost more on the flanks than in the centre.
Booked for a very cynical challenge and was generally too slow to react. Nearly let in Muller for a late goal, but was bailed out by Leno. A disappointing performance from the youngster, who not long ago was capped for country.
Good in possession, but his defending against Muller was rather atrocious. At fault for committing himself and failing to stop Robben's goal, and was very fortunate not to be punished more for what was a very underwhelming defensive performance.
By a mile (almost literally), the most industrious player on the pitch. The 22-year-old was a titan in the centre of the park, and is very unfortunate to play for a team that does not complement his style. He would fill in perfectly in place of his brother, Sven, at Dortmund.
Broke free once early in the game, but had his shot saved. Posed a frustrated figure as his usual advantage, his aerial presence, was kept in check by Van Buyten.

On for the closing moments and had no time to make a significant impact.
Came on at a time when Bayern were lacking energy in midfield, and his introduction fixed any weakness his team had shown up until that point.
On for the closing minutes, the Dutchman looked as though he hadn't missed a month with an injury. Scored with a clinical finish at the death.
