Goal.com picks out the best talent as the Bavarians sealed their 23rd Bundesliga title at the Commerzbank Arena with a narrow win

By Enis Koylu

  • Oka Nikolov
    7
    5
    3.00

    Oka Nikolov

    Made a couple of decent saves in the first half, but was not made to work that much by the champions.

  • Carlos Zambrano
    6
    7
    3.00

    Carlos Zambrano

    Did a decent job at keeping Gomez quiet without standing out a huge amount. Continues to be a good cog in their defence.

  • Bastian Oczipka
    7
    5
    3.50

    Bastian Oczipka

    Did well at left-back, helping to keep Muller, Robben and Lahm largely quiet, save when the Bayern captain set up the goal.

  • Anderson
    3
    9
    2.50

    Anderson

    Completely lost Schweinsteiger for the goal and failed to deal with Bayern's rotating forwards.

  • Sebastian Jung
    6
    6
    2.50

    Sebastian Jung

    Has been one of his side's star players this season, but failed to keep a hold of Shaqiri in particular.

  • Takashi Inui
    14
    7
    2.50

    Takashi Inui

    Came as close as anyone in his side to threatening Neuer, but his shooting was largely wasteful as he spurned a number of opportunities.

  • Martin Lanig
    1
    13
    2.00

    Martin Lanig Flop of the Match

    Started in the absence of Schwegler but barely touched the ball before being withdrawn after just 30 minutes.

  • Stefan Aigner
    5
    9
    2.50

    Stefan Aigner

    Save for a cross to Lakic as Frankfurt rallied late on, Aigner did not have much influence on the game, despite Alaba's disappointing showing.

  • Sebastian Rode
    6
    9
    2.50

    Sebastian Rode

    The reported Bayern and Dortmund target did not have the best of times in the centre of the park, failing to deal with Schweinsteiger and Martinez well.

  • Karim Matmour
    2
    8
    2.50

    Karim Matmour

    A complete passenger when he was on the pitch, the forward was rightly hooked after 75 minutes, and his replacement did far more than him.

Substitutions

  • Stefano Celozzi
    6
    6
    3.00

    Stefano Celozzi

    Came on after 30 minutes and fared better than Lanig.

  • Marc Stendera
    3
    8

    Marc Stendera

    Handed 20 minutes at the end.

  • Srdjan Lakic
    7
    10

    Srdjan Lakic

    Forced Neuer into a great save late on.

  • Manuel Neuer
    97
    4
    3.50

    Manuel Neuer

    A passenger for much of the match, the goalkeeper came up big in the closing stages, making a couple of superb saves.

  • Dante
    74
    4
    3.50

    Dante

    Did not let the Frankfurt attack have any sight of the Bayern goal until late on, when he faded somewhat.

  • Jerome Boateng
    78
    4
    3.50

    Jerome Boateng

    Saved Bayern with a fantastic tackle on Inui to deny the Japanese a goalscoring opportunity. Solid for the most part.

  • Philipp Lahm
    86
    7
    3.50

    Philipp Lahm

    With Frankfurt offering very little down the left, the Bayern captain was allowed to stride forward and set up Schweinsteiger's winner.

  • David Alaba
    60
    25
    2.50

    David Alaba

    After his superb showing in midweek, the Austrian was slightly disappointing today, missing the penalty with a poor effort.

  • Javi Martínez
    74
    12
    3.50

    Javi Martínez

    Kept things ticking over nicely in the centre of the park after returning to the starting line up.

  • Arjen Robben
    78
    17
    2.50

    Arjen Robben

    As ever, his running was threatening, but he was often wasteful in possession, scuffing a number of shots when he should have done better.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    113
    13
    3.50

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Was arguably his side's most threatening player in the first half, running at defenders and testing Nikolov.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    145
    8
    4.00

    Bastian Schweinsteiger Top of the Match

    Continued his fine form with another accomplished showing, forcing Nikolov into a great save before the break and scoring the winner with a lovely back heel.

  • Thomas Müller
    73
    12
    3.00

    Thomas Müller

    Won the penalty, but was fairly disappointing for the most part, drifting in and out of the game before being withdrawn after an hour.

  • Mario Gomez
    56
    42
    2.00

    Mario Gomez

    Failed to stake his claim with a really poor showing. Barely had a sniff of the ball and was rightly taken off.

Substitutions

  • Franck Ribéry
    66
    10
    3.00

    Franck Ribéry

    Performed fairly well without having much of an effect going forward.

  • Luiz Gustavo
    59
    5
    3.00

    Luiz Gustavo

    Kept things ticking over in the middle.

  • Claudio Pizarro
    55

    Claudio Pizarro

    Dragged an effort wide late on.
