    Marcel Schmelzer Flop of the Match

    Tried to participate in the attacking game on the left, but with not much effect. Made an important, defensive header in the 36th minute to stop an opposing counterattack.

    Sven Bender

    Came out victorious in a lot of one-on-ones in the midfield and distributed quality balls to his team-mates throughout..

    Marco Reus

    The former Monchengladbach man looked dangerous before the break but could not carry his form into the second half. Got replaced by Ivan Perisic in the 75th minute.

  • Kevin Großkreutz

    24
    3.50

    Kevin Großkreutz

    Ran like a horse. The midfielder calmly laid off a ball to Kuba on the stroke of half-time, who was able to volley it into the net. Could not crown his performance with a goal, however, when he sent a clear chance over the bar in front of an empty net during the 82nd minute.

  • Robert Lewandowski
    23
    8
    3.00

    Robert Lewandowski

    The Poland international was caught by Dusseldorf's offside trap more than once in the first half and ultimately could not get himself as much into the game as he hoped for.

    Moritz Leitner

    Came in for the captain in the 67th minute. The youngster was ambitious in trying to help his side get the lead again after the 1-1, but could not make the difference.

    The Croatia international was brought in for Reus in the 75th minute but could not make an impact.

  • Julian Schieber

    17

    Julian Schieber

    Came in as a substitute for Kuba in the 81rd minute and looked eager to put himself on the scoring board, but did not have enough time left to make a difference.

  • Fabian Giefer

    3.00

    Fabian Giefer

    Made some great safes and looked solid commanding the penalty area. Proved his good nerves when he denied Dortmund getting the lead via a Piszczek header in the closing minutes of the game.

  • Leon-Aderemi Balogun

    Juanan

    Denied Dortmund an early opportunity to get the lead via a brave header in the sixth minute and defended superbly all game.

  • Johannes van den Bergh

    0
    3.00

    Johannes van den Bergh

    Sound defending performance overall, although Kuba's great runs proved to be too much for a challenge for him at times.

  • Axel Bellinghausen

    0
    3.00

    Axel Bellinghausen

    Had a great chance in the second half after a cross from Kruse, which was denied by a superb Weidenfeller safe. The experienced Bundesliga player could not make an impact on the game, however.

  • Adam Bodzek

    3.50

    Adam Bodzek

    Excellent display in the defence by the Poland-born, who is used playing in Dusseldorf's midfield.

  • Ivan Paurevic
    2
    1
    2.50

    Ivan Paurevic

    Was nearly invisible during his first Bundesliga appearance, which might have been due to Dusseldorf's defensive approach against the champions. Sent off for his second yellow card in the 87th minute.

  • Andreas Lambertz
    2
    0
    3.00

    Andreas Lambertz

    Solid defensive work, but he hardly drove his team-mates over the half-way line. The captain, as experienced as he might be, has still a lot to learn in Germany's first league.

  • Robbie Kruse
    16
    0
    3.50

    Robbie Kruse

    The Australian delivered a nice cross from the left to Reisinger, who turned it into the 1-1. Good performance, but his lack of experience still shows at times.

  • Ken Ilsö

    3.50

    Ken Ilsö

    Looked ambitious but nervous at times. Initiated an almost devastating counterattack in the 69th minute, which unfortunately got defended well.

  • Stefan Reisinger

    Stefan Reisinger Top of the Match

    Had some good chances throughout the game and was able to give his side the equaliser with a terrifically placed header in the 77th minute.
