Goal.com rates the performances of the players involved in the Borussen derby victory for BVB, which sealed the Bundesliga title for Jurgen Klopp's outfit

By Vasil Kotsev

  • Roman Weidenfeller

    Roman Weidenfeller

    Gladbach did not have a single shot on goal in the first half as the goalkeeper was nothing more than a spectator before the break. Did well to come off his line on a couple of occasions, but could have easily just sat in the stands and enjoyed the match.

  • Neven Subotic
    49
    15
    3.00

    Neven Subotic

    The Serbian had very little to do, but still managed to play Reus onside in a situation that could have easily resulted in a goal, had the referee not waved his flag.

  • Mats Hummels
    64
    10
    3.50

    Mats Hummels

    Was solid throughout the game, and made a handful of good forays in the final third. Showed his remarkable vision by delivering a few wonderful passes.

  • Lukasz Piszczek
    66
    12
    3.00

    Lukasz Piszczek

    The Pole was not his usual attacking self on the right flank as he looked timid and disinterested. Rarely troubled in defensive sense.

  • Marcel Schmelzer
    141
    10
    4.00

    Marcel Schmelzer Top of the Match

    The left-back was Dortmund's outstanding player in defence as he was impervious at the back and an absolute beast in attack. Assisted Perisic's goal with fine free-kick.

  • Sebastian Kehl
    41
    13
    3.00

    Sebastian Kehl

    Did not look worried that his team might throw the game away as he stepped down a gear from his usual standard. Not involved in an attacking sense and rarely had to intervene at the back.

  • Ivan Perisic
    98
    12
    3.00

    Ivan Perisic

    Looked very motivated to prove himself and constantly chased the ball. Was rewarded for his efforts with a superb chance, which he put away with aplomb.

  • Jakub Blaszczykowski
    51
    20
    3.00

    Jakub Blaszczykowski

    The winger was largely invisible throughout the first half, and hardly improved after the break. Lost the ball very easily on a handful of occasions.

  • Ilkay Gündogan
    48
    21
    3.50

    Ilkay Gündogan

    Made a couple of great passes, but was not up to his usual standard on the day. Did not put much effort in defensive sense either.

  • Robert Lewandowski
    87
    16
    3.00

    Robert Lewandowski

    The Polish striker started off well, troubling Gladbach with his clever movement and strength. Had a nice shot narrowly miss the target early on, but from there on he was largely invisible.

  • Shinji Kagawa
    195
    29
    0.00

    Shinji Kagawa

    The Japanese did very well to create chances for himself, but his finishing let him down way too many times. Missed a handful of easy opportunities, but it did not really matter in the end as he decided the game with a goal on the hour mark.

Substitutions

  • Moritz Leitner
    35
    11
    0.00

    Moritz Leitner

    Replaced Gundogan in the second half, but failed to provide anything breath-taking.

  • Mario Götze
    76
    12
    0.00

    Mario Götze

    Made his long-awaited return in the final minutes of the match.

  • Marc-Andre ter Stegen
    26
    9
    3.50

    Marc-Andre ter Stegen

    Pulled off a superb double save on Kagawa and Lewandowski early on, and made a few very good reflex blocks. Could have probably done better for the opener.

  • Filip Daems
    9
    5
    3.00

    Filip Daems

    Did well to neutralise the threat of Kuba and Piszczek on the flank. Saw plenty of the ball, but kept it simple in possession. Rarely had chances to attack.

  • Roel Brouwers
    7
    5
    2.50

    Roel Brouwers

    The defender had a decent game, but also a few lapses in concentration. Nowhere to be seen for Dortmund's double chance in the 20th minute. Should take some blame for BVB's second and allowed a good opportunity for Lewandowski in the 61st minute.

  • Tony Jantschke
    13
    6
    2.00

    Tony Jantschke

    Put in a good shift in defensive midfield as he did very well to help neutralise the threat of Polish duo Kuba and Piszczek on the right flank.

  • Dante
    6
    11
    2.50

    Dante

    Was shaky at the back, and could have probably done better for the opener. The Brazilian was not his usual aggressive and imposing self at the back.

  • Martin Stranzl
    5
    23
    2.00

    Martin Stranzl Flop of the Match

    Looked out of depth at right-back and it showed. Was run ragged by Perisic and Schmelzer and was often caught out of position, including for the second goal of the game. The opener also came from his zone and that was no coincidence.

  • Patrick Herrmann
    5
    11
    1.50

    Patrick Herrmann

    Was absolutely invisible until his substitution shortly after the break. Will want to quickly forget this horrible Saturday performance.

  • Marco Reus
    37
    13
    3.00

    Marco Reus

    Tried hard to upset his future employers, but received little support from his team-mates. Was wrongly flagged for offside on a couple of occasions in the first half, but could have done better with his chance in the 63rd minute.

  • Havard Nordtveit
    11
    5
    2.00

    Havard Nordtveit

    Put in plenty of effort as he ran his socks off for his team. Tackled hard and pressed the opposition, and made a few crisp passes.

  • Juan Fernando Arango
    7
    9
    2.00

    Juan Fernando Arango

    The Venezuelan had a forgettable game as more often than not his passes did not find a team-mate. Was predictable in possession and failed to inspire his team-mates.

  • Mike Hanke
    6
    9
    2.00

    Mike Hanke

    The striker ran and ran after the ball, but had virtually no impact on the game. Did not get any chances and was deprived of possession for most of the match.

Substitutions

  • Oscar Wendt
    4
    7
    2.50

    Oscar Wendt

    Came on for Juan Arango, but was not much of an improvement over the Venezuelan.

  • Alexander Ring
    4
    6
    2.50

    Alexander Ring

    Failed to provide a spark in the final third after replacing Patrick Herrmann.
