Goal.com rates the performance of the players involved in tonight's exciting clash ...

By Vasil Kotsev

  • Hans-Jörg Butt
    36

    2.50

    Hans-Jörg Butt

    Did well, bearing in mind that he started the game with an injury. Faultless for both goals.

  • Danijel Pranjic
    84

    3.50

    Danijel Pranjic

    Gave much food for thought to Van Gaal tonight as he assisted Bayern's first two goals tonight. Looked solid at the back, but still far from the form he once used to exhibit at Heerenveen.

  • Martín Demichelis
    67
    10
    3.00

    Martín Demichelis

    Scored the vital opener and was not troubled at the back in the first half. Looked much less composed in the session, and was at fault for Freiburg's first goal.

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk Top of the Match

    One of Bayern's best players on the pitch yet again, if not the best. Rock-solid in defence in the first half and inspirational in midfield after the break. Totally deserved his goal in the second half.

  • Philipp Lahm
    65
    8
    2.50

    Philipp Lahm

    A very quiet performance by the ever reliable right-back. Did not offer much in attacking sense, but was stable in defence.

  • Thomas Müller
    59
    12
    2.00

    Thomas Müller

    Despite a few good touches and some good runs, he was pretty wasteful tonight and rushed his decisions more often than not. Lost possession in the build-up to Freiburg's first goal, too.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    155
    7
    3.00

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Back to his world-class self. He was superb in possession and bossed the midfield in both halves. Carved some excellent chances for his team after the break.

  • Toni Kroos
    91
    7
    3.00

    Toni Kroos

    Pretty anonymous until his strike in the second half. That wonderful goal might bring his confidence back.

  • Andreas Ottl
    57
    10
    2.50

    Andreas Ottl

    He is no Van Bommel and it showed tonight yet again. He ran and ran, but his passing let him down at times. Unlucky not to score with a wonderful shot in the first half.

  • Hamit Altıntop
    46
    14
    2.00

    Hamit Altıntop

    Nothing he tried came off tonight as the Turkish international struggled in the first half. Replaced at half-time.

  • Mario Gomez
    73
    12
    3.00

    Mario Gomez

    Reminded of his inability to put away simple chances tonight as he missed quite a few. Showed some good touches, though, and good for him he managed to double Bayern's lead with a free-header from the six-yard box.

Substitutions

  • Edson Braafheid
    64
    32
    0.00

    Edson Braafheid

    Came on for fourteen minutes and managed to score a ridiculous own goal. His days at Bayern seem to be numbered.

  • Daniel Van Buyten
    37
    19
    2.50

    Daniel Van Buyten

    Looked like his clumsy self, but did help Bayern deal with Freiburg's increasingly attacking play after coming on for Altintop.

  • Oliver Baumann
    4
    4
    2.00

    Oliver Baumann

    Faultless for the third and fourth goals, but really could have been better positioned on the first two strikes. A night to forget for the goalkeeper.

  • Felix Bastians
    6
    9
    1.50

    Felix Bastians Flop of the Match

    Did well to provide the cross for Braafheid's ridiculous own goal, but had an average game tonight. Nowhere to be seen for Bayern's first strike and was occasionally bypassed by Mueller after the break.

  • Ömer Toprak
    3
    4
    2.50

    Ömer Toprak

    Poor marking resulted in two easy goals for Bayern tonight and Toprak played a big part in all of this. The hosts' attackers went past him way too many times.

  • Oliver Barth
    5
    3
    2.50

    Oliver Barth

    Equally poor in defence, his bad marking and positioning let him down on many occasions.

  • Mensur Mujdza
    7
    7
    2.00

    Mensur Mujdza

    Should have had Gomez marked in the build-up to Bayern's second and was generally very poor in defence. Offered nothing in attack and it is no coincidence that three of Die Roten's goal came from his side of the defence.

  • Anton Putsila
    6
    6
    2.00

    Anton Putsila

    Was Freiburg's best midfielder today. Provided the assist for the visitors' first goal and was very good at orchestrating his team's play.

  • Yacine Abdessadki
    4
    6
    2.50

    Yacine Abdessadki

    Aside from a good shot in the 70th minute, Abdessadki was very quiet tonight. Substituted in the second half.

  • Cedrick Makiadi
    3
    4
    2.50

    Cedrick Makiadi

    Fought hard, but was ultimately outclassed by Schweinsteiger & company in midfield. Lost the ball on a couple of occasions and did not inspire much confidence with his passing.

  • Julian Schuster
    1
    5
    2.00

    Julian Schuster

    The ex-Stuttgart man did not offer much in attack and one could hardly tell he was on the pitch tonight. A poor outing.

  • Maximilian Nicu
    3
    4
    1.50

    Maximilian Nicu

    Pretty anonymous in attack throughout the game and without much contribution in defence tonight. Substituted for Reisinger.

  • Papiss Cissé
    5
    6
    3.00

    Papiss Cissé

    The leading goalscorer in the Bundesliga so far was deprived of service tonight and struggled for most of the game. His off-the-ball play was very good, but could have done better in the 15th minute when he spurned a great chance.

Substitutions

  • Stefan Reisinger
    10
    2
    3.00

    Stefan Reisinger

    The super substitution tonight. Came on and scored right away to give hope to Freiburg. Aside from that, he did not offer much after replacing Nicu in the 62nd minute.
