Faced next to no attempts in the first half but was on hand to make a string of important stops to help his team to victory in the Club World Cup.
Despite not nearly as threatening from set-pieces, he provided the flick-on for Dante to mop up. Looked far more assured defensively as he struggled to put a foot wrong in 90 minutes.
Had very little defending to do, having been aided greatly by Shaqiri in front of him, but nevertheless supported the winger with his tendency to overlap for most part of the night.
Almost came unstuck early on following Iajour's quick feet to expose his lack of agility, but a fine finish to put Bayern on their away, along with another powerful headed attempt, meant that he more than atoned for his occasional lapses in concentration.
Anchored the midfield perfectly well, having played numerous intelligent passes to execute attacks for his team and used his anticipation to break up any potential danger. Bypassed on the odd occasion, however.
After a storming first half, in which he made mincemeat of El Hachimi, including a lay-off to assist Thiago, complacency got the better of him as his work-rate dipped after the break and allowed the full-back and Chtibi to find openings.
Along with Thiago, he helped keep Bayern in total control of possession, but his influence waned as the Moroccans grew into stature. Replaced by Martinez.
Controlled the game virtually all evening, seamlessly turning patient build-up play into attacking opportunities. Struck a cool finish to clinch the Club World Cup for his side.
Far more lively than Ribery at times but failed to truly penetrate the right flank in the ilk of an Arjen Robben. Found himself inside on many occasions but his poor shooting did him no favours.
The Frenchman was expected to produce a performance worthy of the Ballon d'Or prior to kick-off, yet he flattered to deceive. Started well enough with his incisive running but ran out of ideas after the break.
Deployed as a false nine, he constantly dropped deeper to help Bayern contain the hapless Casablanca midfield and manoeuvred himself well, but at the expense of his attacking prowwess. Swapped for Mandzukic.
Made a number of fine saves throughout to keep Bayern at bay. A real source of inspiration in the Casablanca team.
His lack of stature exposed him on a number of occasions, yet his endeavour to get back could not be faulted as he made a few important interceptions.
Z. El Hachimi
After struggling so badly to live with Alaba in the first half, his persistence proved the key as he eventually found the courage to extinguish the Austrian's impact and became an outlet out wide for his side.
Failed to make any of his deliveries towards the box count, but he caught the eye down the left, exhibiting strong running and combining with Hafidi on occasions.
For what he lacked in pace, he made up with an aerial presence which, despite proving useful from crosses, was rendered useless for most part as Bayern looked to pass their way past him.
Sat deep alongside Moutouali in midfield, yet unlike his partner showed the intent to pass the ball forward and build attacking moves.
Interchanged well with Iajour at times, as they roamed in eachothers' channels, but was unable to make his efforts count.
Swarmed by Bayern's midfield players, the Moroccan was brutally outclassed and only very rarely broke from deep. When he did, however, he could only muster up wasteful attempts at goal rather than recycling the ball effectively.
Found space down the right on occasions, yet lacked the imagination or heart to capitalise on Alaba's lax defensive play. Replaced late on.
Was extremely lively in the first half, firing Casablanca's only two meaningful attempts at goal, before completely fizzling out after the restart.
Gave Rafinha a few problems on the left by attracting fouls with his quick feet, but his head dropped as the occasion eventually got the better of him.
