The youngster was alert throughout, making a few impressive blocks. Gladbach rarely troubled his goal.
An improved performance compared to recent weeks, dealing well with Hanke. Made a superb interception to stop Reus from opening the scoring although struggled a little when Idrissou entered the game late on.
After a quiet first-half, the Bayern captain was on top form going forward in the second period, bombing forward to provide extra width when possible.
The Frenchman was a little off color today although he did come close to opening the scoring with a curling effort before providing the assist for Robben's eventual opening and winning goal.
Frustrating afternoon for the Dutchman who struggled at times to influence the game as much as he would have liked. However, when it really mattered the Dutch magician showed some excellent dribbling skills in the build up to his only goal of the game. Big goal too.
The German playmaker wasn't at his best this afternoon with Gladbach doing well to close him down quickly. A few misplaced passes early on did nothing for his confidence as he failed to pick up his performance.
The Brazilian looked comfortable in the center of defense although he will surely face sterner tests than that of Gladbach's attack. Showed some nice touches.
The Croatian looked fairly decent defensively, keeping the usually lively Herrmann quiet- although he failed to provide the attacking threat that he is expected to bring to this Bayern side.
The young German struggled to dictate play in the center of the park with Gladbach working well to close down space. Improved as the game went on.
The Bundesliga top-scorer was always looking for the ball although his first touch at times was poor. Missed several guilt-edge chances which could have proved costly for the Champions.
Average game for the World Cup 2010 Golden Boot winner who did not see as much of the ball as he would have liked. A few nice touches here and there but failed to provide the trickery that is accustomed to his game.
The Belgian shot-stopper had a fairly quiet game with Bayern not at their best. He did make a handful of decent stops but could do nothing about Robben's winner.
The Brazilian centre-half dealt with Gomez's threat brilliantly and kept the former Stuttgart striker well marked throughout the game.
The full-back performed admirably against Ribery and Pranjic, keeping both men quiet down the wings and forcing the latter to come infield to find the ball.
Like his fellow full-back Jantschke, the Belgian did very well to limit his opponents, particularly keeping Robben quiet for the majority of the game.
The central midfielder was hard working while on the pitch and helped minimize Schweinsteiger and Kroos' influence on the game. His passing was decent too.
The Austrian defender looked impressive this afternoon. He provided a welcome presence to the Gladbach backline and made several great interceptions.
The former Mallorca man had a quiet game, struggling to get involved in play especially as the game went on and Bayern began to dominate.
The Norwegian January signing looked good playing defensive midfield today. He put a shift in and helped keep the likes of Mueller quiet throughout.
The winger had a decent game and looked good on the ball although unfortunately this was limited due to Bayern being in control of the majority of possession.
The highly-rated youngster looked lively when on the ball and created several half-chances for his team-mates. Would have hoped to have seen more of the ball.
The tall striker was often left isolated and was unable to hold the ball up efficiently when given the opportunity. Not a great performance.

Came on for Kroos with 15 minutes to go and played fairly well, always looking for the forward ball.
The veteran striker looked lively when introduced into the game and came very close to adding a second when his low effort rebounded off the post.
- 1 C. Heimeroth

The powerful striker did well on his introduction into the game, causing Badstuber in particular with a few problems.
