Player Ratings: Bayern Munich 2-0 Eintracht Frankfurt

Goals from Ribery and Alaba led Die Roten to a comfortable victory on Saturday afternoon, preserving a commanding seven-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga

By Daniel Edwards

  • Manuel Neuer

    2.50

    Manuel Neuer

    A very straightforward game for the Germany international, who was barely tested in any serious fashion.

  • Dante
    76
    3
    2.50

    Dante

    Didn't put a foot wrong in defence, and his passing out of the back was key to Bayern's threat going forward on the break.

  • Jerome Boateng
    72
    3
    2.50

    Jerome Boateng

    Was solid in the middle until a groin injury forced him off in the first half.

  • Philipp Lahm
    74
    3
    2.50

    Philipp Lahm

    Did not get forward as much as he may have liked, but was a consistent presence in defence and coped well with the tricky Inui.

  • David Alaba
    102
    4
    3.00

    David Alaba

    Impressive stuff from the full-back, who was never afraid to cross the halfway line and pressure his opposite number. Expertly executed his chance from the spot.

  • Franck Ribéry
    137

    3.50

    Franck Ribéry Top of the Match

    A constant danger to the Frankfurt defence, as he showed the form everyone knows he is capable of. Finished the first goal with class.

  • Javi Martínez
    99
    4
    2.50

    Javi Martínez

    Still showing that he has not completely adapted to life in Germany, but a well-placed cross set Ribery up perfectly for the opener.

  • Arjen Robben
    98
    9
    2.50

    Arjen Robben

    The final product was at times lacking, but the winger never stopped running and gave Frankfurt serious headaches both from open play and set-pieces.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    85
    7
    3.00

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    A slow start from the midfielder, but he gradually came to control the game's tempo and won the penalty which sewed up three points.

  • Toni Kroos
    84
    9
    3.00

    Toni Kroos

    Had a couple of decent chances and his movement and link play with Ribery gave Frankfurt a lot of trouble.

  • Claudio Pizarro
    58
    14
    2.00

    Claudio Pizarro

    The hat-trick hero against Lille could not follow up Wednesday's heroics, and put in a rather muted display before coming off for Muller.

Substitutions

  • Daniel Van Buyten
    92
    6
    3.00

    Daniel Van Buyten

    Very impressive stuff from the Belgian, who made his first appearance of the season when Boateng came off. A rock in defence, and unlucky to see a towering header chalked off for offside.

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
    66
    7
    2.50

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    Made a brief appearance towards the end of the game.

  • Thomas Müller
    80
    6
    2.50

    Thomas Müller

    Entered for Pizarro, and gave a new dimension to the attack with his incursions from deep and talent on the ball.

  • Kevin Trapp
    46
    4
    3.50

    Kevin Trapp

    Could not be blamed for either goal, and made a handful of excellent stops to keep the margin respectable.

  • Vadim Demidov
    3
    16
    1.50

    Vadim Demidov Flop of the Match

    A game to forget for the defender, who was caught out on several occasions and conceded the penalty with a clumsy challenge.

  • Bastian Oczipka
    5
    7
    2.50

    Bastian Oczipka

    Tried hard to keep the defence in order, but struggled against the dynamic movement of Ribery and Kroos.

  • Anderson
    6
    5
    2.50

    Anderson

    One of the best in Frankfurt's backline, making several decent interventions.

  • Sebastian Jung
    9
    7
    2.50

    Sebastian Jung

    Never stopped running, and tried hard to keep the Frankfurt defence in one piece.

  • Takashi Inui
    8
    10
    2.00

    Takashi Inui

    Delighted the visitors with a couple of electric moments of skill, but was disappointing over the 90 minutes.

  • Alexander Meier
    8
    5
    2.00

    Alexander Meier

    Tried to use his height and physique to positive effect in Bayern's area, but saw little of the ball to make the difference.

  • Stefan Aigner
    3
    9
    2.00

    Stefan Aigner

    Very lucky not to see red in the opening minutes of the match, after a brutal challenge.

  • Sebastian Rode
    7
    9
    2.50

    Sebastian Rode

    An occasional threat out wide, but too profligate with the ball and barely created a single chance for his side.

  • Karim Matmour
    14
    6
    2.50

    Karim Matmour

    Forced a rare save from Neuer with his stinging long-range effort. Had few opportunities to impose himself inside the box.

  • Pirmin Schwegler
    5
    7
    2.50

    Pirmin Schwegler

    Overrun in midfield by the duo of Schweinsteiger and Martinez, but passed efficiently and tried to press high up the field.

Substitutions

  • Martin Lanig
    3
    8

    Martin Lanig

    Played the last five minutes with the game already slipping from the away side's grasp.

  • Olivier Occean
    5
    9
    2.00

    Olivier Occean

    Came on as another attacking option, but was ineffective in the final third.
