A tad lucky to see his flap at a corner go unpunished, but was otherwise untroubled throughout.
Not ever likely to be the game where his defensive credentials would be put to the test, but he still took care of business with little fuss.
D. Van Buyten
Rarely put a foot wrong at the back, though in truth, danger moments from the opposition were few and far between.
He spent most of his time camped high up in the opposition half. His final ball was hit or miss however, starving Mandzukic of service.
Functioned essentially as an auxiliary winger, and was involved with plenty of combinations with Xherdan Shaqiri down the right flank.
Direct and decisive on the flanks for Bayern, with his 35th minute glancing header proving to be the match-winner.
Mopped up loose ends effectively in the middle of the park, and really enjoyed a comfortable outing with his Freiburg counterparts not putting up much of a fight.
Linked play well, though his shooting could have been more clinical when presented with the chance.
The most dangerous player on the pitch for the Bavarian giants. He was a nightmare to contain over on the right wing, and his free kick set up Emre Can's goal.
Looked a tad off the pace playing just off Mandzukic up front, and he struggled to make any real impact in the final third.
The Croatian forward played well with his back to goal and was able to lay off multiple shooting opportunities for his team-mates.
Showed poor command of his area in the build-up to the only goal of the game, but was not forced to make too many saves otherwise as Bayern's radar was decidedly off.
Put out a lot of fires inside his own area, committing himself entirely to the cause. Not afraid to put his body on the line to prevent an opening either.
Xherdan Shaqiri gave him a torrid time on the left, and he came off second best in most of his duels with the Switzerland international.
Could not accomplish much defensively on the flank, as the constant waves of Bayern attacks meant that he was treading water for much of the game.
Had little say in the direction of the midfield battle, as the clear superiority of his Bayern counterparts meant that he was left chasing shadows.
Often lost the physical battle against Mario Mandzukic, as he failed to muscle the Croatian off the ball on the occasions when he had his back to goal.
Woked very hard to close down the space outside his penalty area, where Bayern set up camp for the majority of the match. His effort could not be faulted, but he could not always keep up.
A fruitless outing for him today, as his lack of time on the ball meant that he had little influence in the attacking third of the pitch.
Simply never managed to get it going today, as his rare touches on the ball never amounted to anything meaningful for his side.
Like Daniel Caligiuri on the opposite flank, his task was always destined to be difficult. He fared slightly better on the ball, but still spent much of the afternoon chasing.
Led the line well for the visitors, and his ability to hold up the ball and link with his team-mates were at the heart of the few positive moments for Freiburg.
