Goal.com takes a closer look at the players involved in a frenetic clash at Signal Iduna Park, won by the visitors who came from behind to further dent BVB's title dreams

By Daniel Edwards

  • Roman Weidenfeller
    14
    32
    3.00

    Roman Weidenfeller

    Could have done better on both of Rudnevs' strikes, especially on the second when he allowed the ball to escape through his legs.

  • Mats Hummels
    15
    37
    2.50

    Mats Hummels

    Failed to impress in the centre of defence, given a torrid time by Rudnevs and nowhere to be seen when the striker added his second to end the game as a contest.

  • Lukasz Piszczek
    46
    21
    3.00

    Lukasz Piszczek

    Struggled to keep hold of Aogo, and his slack marking played a part in HSV's equaliser.

  • Felipe Santana
    11
    39
    2.00

    Felipe Santana

    A strong, solid performance from the centre-back, especially in the air, but was not comfortable dealing with HSV's fluid counters.

  • Sebastian Kehl
    15
    29
    2.50

    Sebastian Kehl

    Given a tough task keeping tabs on the in-form Van der Vaart, and on more than one occasion let the midfielder slip away.

  • Sven Bender
    10
    41
    2.50

    Sven Bender

    Badly caught out by Son as the Korean breezed past him on the way to handing Hamburg the lead.

  • Mario Götze
    30
    34
    3.00

    Mario Götze

    Will be kicking himself for failing to force at least a save from Adler after doing so well in the opening minutes. Dortmund's most potent threat on goal.

  • Marco Reus
    40
    23
    3.00

    Marco Reus

    A strangely muted performance from the talented winger, who was given little space to shine and his contribution was limited to sporadic involvement.

  • Jakub Blaszczykowski
    58
    17
    3.50

    Jakub Blaszczykowski

    Forced to play deep in his own half for large spells of the game, nullifying his quality as an explosive threat down the flank.

  • Nuri Sahin
    31
    39
    3.00

    Nuri Sahin

    Great expectations surrounded BVB's prodigal son on his first start, but a lacklustre display failed to get his side moving in the middle.

  • Robert Lewandowski
    74
    57
    1.50

    Robert Lewandowski Flop of the Match

    Showed his typical poaching skills to hand Dortmund the lead, but let himself down in a tussle with Van der Vaart that meant his game finished early.

Substitutions

  • Ilkay Gündogan
    45
    12
    3.50

    Ilkay Gündogan

    Brought on with Dortmund already chasing a lost cause, and could not turn the tide.

  • Julian Schieber
    5
    40
    2.00

    Julian Schieber

    Replaced Kehl with 25 minutes to go, but the game already appeared out of reach.

  • René Adler
    52
    3
    3.50

    René Adler

    Badly let down by his defence as Lewandowski burst through to score, but responded with a commanding, flawless display between the posts.

  • Dennis Diekmeier
    24
    9
    3.00

    Dennis Diekmeier

    Rather lucky not to become the second HSV man sent off after pulling down Reus as the last defender. Defended diligently and without fuss.

  • Heiko Westermann
    20
    14
    2.50

    Heiko Westermann

    Was badly at fault for Lewandowski's opener, guilty of ball-watching, but rallied from that slip to put in a solid display at the back.

  • Jeffrey Bruma
    19
    19
    2.00

    Jeffrey Bruma

    Saw red for a cynical foul on Reus when the midfielder was streaking through, although his tackle may have saved an equaliser.

  • Marcell Jansen
    38
    5
    3.50

    Marcell Jansen

    Linked effectively with Aogo throughout the game, firing Hamburg's counterattacks, and also dealt well with the ever-dangerous Kuba at the other end.

  • Dennis Aogo
    38
    5
    3.50

    Dennis Aogo

    An electric presence both down the flanks and in the middle. Set up Rudnevs' first strike, and was unlucky not to get his own name on the scoresheet.

  • Tomás Eduardo Rincón
    28
    6
    3.00

    Tomás Eduardo Rincón

    A lovely, understated performance from the Venezuela international, who quietly went about his business of disrupting the BVB midfield.

  • Rafael van der Vaart
    47
    27
    3.00

    Rafael van der Vaart

    More than a little fortunate to stay on the pitch in the first half, but his confrontational style and playmaking abilities unsettled Dortmund across the pitch.

  • Per Ciljan Skjelbred
    37
    4
    3.50

    Per Ciljan Skjelbred

    Was the recipient of a brutal tackle that earned Lewandowski a red card, changing the course of the game. A quiet presence, enabling Aogo and Van der Vaart to cause problems.

  • Artjoms Rudņevs
    75
    11
    4.00

    Artjoms Rudņevs

    A wonderful display from the No. 10, who netted two perfectly-executed finishes to see his team through to a key victory.

  • Heung-Min Son
    191
    11
    4.50

    Heung-Min Son Top of the Match

    Will remember this game chiefly for a wonderful solo effort that handed Hamburg a lead they never relinquished. Floated across the pitch, and always looked dangerous.

Substitutions

  • Slobodan Rajkovic
    31
    4
    3.50

    Slobodan Rajkovic

    Came on for Van der Vaart to keep the midfielder safe from a second yellow, as Hamburg enjoyed the comfort of a clear lead.

  • Tolgay Ali Arslan
    20
    6

    Tolgay Ali Arslan

    A late cameo for the midfielder to further shore up the HSV midfield.

  • Gojko Kacar
    19
    4

    Gojko Kacar

    Entered in injury-time for the excellent Son.
