Player Ratings: Freiburg 0-2 Bayern Munich

Goal.com was on hand to rate those involved in Bayern's 2-0 win over in-form Freiburg, as the visitors managed to hold firm against the plucky home side to gain three points

By Simon Harrison

  • Oliver Baumann

    3.00

    Oliver Baumann

    Performed admirably, denying Bayern several scoring opportunities and his command of the area was excellent.

  • Fallou Diagne
    2
    9
    1.00

    Fallou Diagne Flop of the Match

    Ineffectual when on the pitch, and was deservedly sent off for an obvious tug on Xherdan Shaqiri's shirt.

  • Vegar Eggen Hedenstad

    2.50

    Vegar Eggen Hedenstad

    Performed well at times, but was frustrating at others. Summed up by a magnificent run in the second half, but blasting a valuable free-kick well over Neuer's bar.

  • Oliver Sorg
    0
    4
    2.50

    Oliver Sorg

    Had a reasonable first half, but struggled to deal with Franck Ribery throughout. Conceded the penalty that gave Bayern the lead.

  • Cedrick Makiadi
    0
    4
    2.50

    Cedrick Makiadi

    Failed to have any true effect on the game, as Bayern's midfield were much more capable of moving the ball about quickly.

  • Jan Rosenthal
    3
    3
    2.50

    Jan Rosenthal

    Showed occasional touches of class, and was perhaps unfortunate not to pick up an assist.

  • Jonathan Schmid
    1
    3
    2.50

    Jonathan Schmid

    Spurned a couple of reasonable chances, but struggled to get into good positions due to the performances of Bayern's central defensive pairing.

  • Johannes Flum
    1
    3
    3.00

    Johannes Flum

    Energetic performance, and was unlucky not to quite reach a teasing ball which skidded across the six-yard box for a potential Freiburg equaliser.

  • Julian Schuster
    4
    3
    3.00

    Julian Schuster

    He was the source of most of Freiburg's attempts on goal, but he couldn't find the back of the net. Was denied well by Neuer on a couple of occasions.

  • Daniel Caligiuri
    2
    4
    2.50

    Daniel Caligiuri

    Disappointing performance, and picked up a yellow card which gives the player a disciplinary ban.

  • Max Kruse
    4
    3
    3.00

    Max Kruse

    Was always an outlet for his side, who were besieged at times. Unlucky not to get on the scoresheet, as his general performance perhaps deserved a goal.

Substitutions

  • Marc Lais
    0
    3
    2.00

    Marc Lais

    Failed to make a real impact on his Bundesliga debut.

  • Sebastian Freis
    0
    7
    2.00

    Sebastian Freis

    Could have scored with his first touch, but fired a feeble effort straight at the Bayern goalkeeper.

  • Manuel Neuer
    67
    1
    3.00

    Manuel Neuer

    Did what he was required to do, and made a particularly good save low down to his left in the second half, to prevent a Freiburg equaliser.

  • Dante
    87
    0
    3.50

    Dante

    Had a very strong game, hit the bar and prevented countless attacks.

  • Philipp Lahm
    78
    1
    3.50

    Philipp Lahm

    Apart from one lapse in concentration, the Germany international was solid at full-back, and also grabbed an assist.

  • David Alaba
    67
    5
    3.00

    David Alaba

    The young Austrian had a steady game, but failed to really combine with Ribery as he has previously this season.

  • Holger Badstuber
    55
    9
    3.00

    Holger Badstuber

    Had a steady game, was never in the forefront of the action like his central defensive partner.

  • Franck Ribéry
    67
    8
    3.00

    Franck Ribéry

    His driving runs caused real problems for the home side, and he had several opportunities to extend Bayern's lead, but was wasteful. His spurned chance in stoppage time summed up his game.

  • Javi Martínez
    86
    2
    3.50

    Javi Martínez

    Held the Bayern midfield together well, distributing the ball efficiently and also showing a few touches of skill. Could have conceded a penalty with a clumsy handball in the first half.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    79
    5
    3.00

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Was lively in the first half, but was more nondescript in the second, which justified Heynckes' decision to substitute the young midfielder.

  • Toni Kroos
    61
    8
    3.00

    Toni Kroos

    Again, a steady game for Kroos, who battled well against a hard-working Freiburg outfit.

  • Thomas Müller
    73
    4
    3.50

    Thomas Müller

    Slotted away his penalty coolly, and was unfortunate not to grab another goal due to the offside flag.

  • Mario Gomez
    47
    23
    2.50

    Mario Gomez

    Wasn't really his day. Worked hard and was a physical presence, but his substitution was definitely justified.

Substitutions

  • Rafinha
    44
    7
    2.50

    Rafinha

    Was lively after coming on, but failed to really get into the game like his fellow substitutes.

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
    89
    7
    4.00

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk Top of the Match

    Worked hard upon taking to the field, and scored a rare Bundesliga goal to secure the three points for his side.

  • Claudio Pizarro
    50
    10
    3.00

    Claudio Pizarro

    Had better luck than his teammate Gomez, but really should have put the game beyond doubt before Tymoshchuk's strike, as he fired a great chance straight at Baumann.
