Goal.com was on hand to cast an eye over the players on show, as the Bavarians bounced back from defeat to Bayer Leverkusen to record a comfortable victory

By Miles Chambers

  • René Adler
    45
    6
    3.00

    René Adler

    He has been one of the in-form goalkeepers in the Bundesliga since the start of the season, and he showed some of that form to help keep Bayern at bay for large periods of the game.

  • Dennis Diekmeier
    7
    13
    2.50

    Dennis Diekmeier

    The full-back looked weak going forward and struggled to deal with Alaba and Ribery when defending. Booked a third of the way into the match for a careless elbow and was forced to be even more conservative in his challenges from then on.

  • Michael Mancienne
    3
    15
    2.50

    Michael Mancienne

    The former Chelsea centre-back looked sharp in the first-half of the match, with a super tackle on Alaba inside the box a particular highlight. But a momentary lapse in concentration allowed Bayern to catch the hosts on the break and score the opener.

  • Heiko Westermann
    7
    15
    2.50

    Heiko Westermann

    He was sturdy in the first 45 minutes but part of a backline that buckled early in the second-half. The club captain will want to forget this team performance quickly.

  • Marcell Jansen
    14
    8
    3.00

    Marcell Jansen

    He started at left-back before moving up to left of midfield in the second-half. He showed one moment of timely pace and passing 12 minutes in but not too much else. Yellow carded for dissent.

  • Tomás Eduardo Rincón
    4
    12
    3.00

    Tomás Eduardo Rincón

    He had the best (and only) Hamburg chance of the first-half when he shot inches wide from 30 yards and he shielded well when in possession. But, his marking was slack and he let opposition players have too much time on the ball. Brought off at half-time.

  • Milan Badelj
    16
    11
    2.50

    Milan Badelj

    The Croatian midfielder held his own early on in the game but struggled to keep the likes of Schweinsteiger and Kroos at bay.

  • Tolgay Ali Arslan
    5
    16
    2.50

    Tolgay Ali Arslan

    Looked sloppy and wasteful in possession. His passing was restricted to long balls which rarely came off.

  • Maximilian Beister
    10
    22
    2.00

    Maximilian Beister Flop of the Match

    The attacker was completely anonymous in the first-half perhaps even more so in the second period.

  • Rafael van der Vaart
    25
    14
    3.00

    Rafael van der Vaart

    Spearheading the centre of Hamburg’s attack, the ex-Real Madrid man threatened briefly but struggled to stamp his authority.

  • Heung-Min Son
    28
    14
    2.50

    Heung-Min Son

    The South Korean starlet was comfortable with the ball at his feet, but was not given as much opportunity to play as he would of liked.

Substitutions

  • Dennis Aogo
    13
    12
    2.50

    Dennis Aogo

    Unable to have any real impact after coming on, but hit a couple of nice passes.

  • Artjoms Rudņevs
    4
    17
    2.00

    Artjoms Rudņevs

    Brought on at half-time but was ineffectual in crafting any sort of goal for the hosts. He did win a couple of throw-ins and free kicks but certainly nothing to brag about.

  • Manuel Neuer
    96
    5
    3.00

    Manuel Neuer

    Barely had anything to do in the match for 45 minutes except watch the game in front of him. Had to make a couple of routine saves in the second but nothing of any great danger.

  • Dante
    84
    16
    3.00

    Dante

    The Brazilian had a quiet game but showed sufficient quality when required.

  • Jerome Boateng
    76
    12
    3.00

    Jerome Boateng

    The ex-Manchester City defender’s passing was occasionally wayward, but his positioning was more solid and his marking of Van der Vaart efficient.

  • Philipp Lahm
    89
    8
    3.00

    Philipp Lahm

    The full-back attacked with pace in his customary manner, but also showed his ability in defence with a couple of vital interceptions.

  • David Alaba
    112
    7
    3.50

    David Alaba

    The young left-back looked sprightly with his bursts up and down the flanks causing chaos in Hamburg’s defence. Forced a few saves from Adler and made timely tackles in his position further back when it was needed.

  • Franck Ribéry
    174
    5
    4.50

    Franck Ribéry Top of the Match

    A petty booking aside for a late tackle, the France international was in stunning form. He was a persistent threat, helped craft the second goal and put through a perfectly-weighted pass for the third.

  • Luiz Gustavo
    69
    13
    3.00

    Luiz Gustavo

    The midfielder went quietly about his business and enjoyed an efficient display before being replaced by Javi Martinez late on.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    135
    5
    4.00

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    The Germany international opened the scoring with a header and helped to dominate the midfield. Ran the show in the middle of the park.

  • Toni Kroos
    138
    6
    4.00

    Toni Kroos

    The attacking midfielder nearly tore the net in two with his thunderbolt goal and put in an admirable shift that was full of running.

  • Mario Mandzukic
    67
    22
    3.00

    Mario Mandzukic

    The striker had a number of chances to get on the scoresheet but it was not to be his day, with his team-mates taking responsibility for goalscoring duties on this occasion.

  • Thomas Müller
    120
    8
    3.50

    Thomas Müller

    Quiet early on but then burst into life by creating the first goal with a flicked header just before half-time. He then doubled the scoreline with a masterful finish from an acute angle.

Substitutions

  • Javi Martínez
    66
    18
    2.50

    Javi Martínez

    Brought on for Gustavo, the midfielder was needlessly yellow carded with just over 20 minutes left. He helped keep Hamburg's midfield at bay, but by the time he had been brought on the hosts had lost all of their fighting spirit.

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
    59
    14
    2.00

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    Came on late in the game but did not play long enough to make an impact of note.
