Goal.com rates the performances of both sets of players at Signal Iduna Park as Jurgen Klopp's team stormed into the quarter-finals at the expense of die Roten

By Charlie Scott

  • Roman Weidenfeller
    31

    3.00

    Roman Weidenfeller

    A spectator in the first half. Called into action shortly after the break as Mame Diouf bore down on goal but came off his line well to steal the ball, before the striker then scored his side's only goal late on.

  • Neven Subotic
    36
    2
    3.50

    Neven Subotic

    Superb at the back for the home side. Snuffed out the early danger of Mame Diouf with some timely interceptions. Also posed a threat from set pieces and headed just wide after connecting well with a Reus free kick in the second half.

  • Mats Hummels
    41
    6
    3.50

    Mats Hummels

    Confident in the centre of defence alongside Neven Subotic, didn't put a foot wrong all game and even came close to scoring from a corner midway through the first half.

  • Lukasz Piszczek
    60
    3
    4.00

    Lukasz Piszczek

    Got forward whenever possible down the right for the home side, and ensured that Hannover left-back Christian Pander had few chances to support his side in attack. A very impressive performance from the defender.

  • Sebastian Kehl
    32
    3
    3.50

    Sebastian Kehl

    Chipped the ball brilliantly on to the head of Kevin Grosskreutz to help set up the first goal, and put in a typically composed performance in midfield.

  • Ilkay Gündogan
    38
    4
    3.50

    Ilkay Gündogan

    Showed a greater hunger for the ball than his midfield opponents, and provided the perfect defensive platform for his side to attack.

  • Mario Götze
    155
    3
    5.00

    Mario Götze Top of the Match

    Scored a brilliant hat-trick for Dortmund as they romped to victory. Dispatched the first goal of the evening from close range before scoring a fine free kick to make it 3-0 before half-time. A smart volley late on sealed his hat-trick, as the 20-year-old stood out in a fine team performance.

  • Marco Reus
    66
    1
    3.50

    Marco Reus

    Provided a sublime assist for Reus' fortunate goal in the 18th minute, slicing the Hannover defence open with a perfect pass to his team-mate. Impressive throughout both on and off the ball.

  • Jakub Blaszczykowski
    65
    2
    4.00

    Jakub Blaszczykowski

    Added a second for Dortmund in the 18th minute, thanks to a fortunate deflection after Ron-Robert Zieler parried the attacker's initial shot back onto him and over the goal line. Displayed remarkable energy levels to hassle Hannover in possession throughout, and was superb with the ball at his feet.

  • Kevin Großkreutz
    38
    6
    3.50

    Kevin Großkreutz

    Grabbed the assist for Dortmund's opening goal with a well-weighted headed pass to Mario Gotze. Stood in for the injured Marcel Schmelzer at left-back and was confident in what was an unfamiliar position.

  • Robert Lewandowski
    81
    1
    4.00

    Robert Lewandowski

    Missed two good chances to score in the opening minutes, but apart from that was unplayable for the home side. His hold-up play was impeccable, and he got a deserved goal late on to make it 5-1.

Substitutions

  • Ivan Perisic
    30
    2

    Ivan Perisic

    Brought on in the closing minutes of the match. Played some neat passes in the build-up to Lewandowski's goal.

  • Leonardo Bittencourt
    27
    1

    Leonardo Bittencourt

    No time to have an impact on the game after being introduced in the dying seconds.

  • Julian Schieber
    22
    5

    Julian Schieber

    The former Stuttgart replaced Reus towards the end of the match and put in a decent showing.

  • Ron-Robert Zieler
    3
    5
    2.50

    Ron-Robert Zieler

    Will have felt slightly aggrieved to have conceded so early on, as Ilkay Gundogan appeared to block his attempt to punch Kevin Grosskreutz's header away. Could do little about Reus' fortunate second, before Gotze fooled him with his low free kick just before half-time. Was then beaten from close range by Gotze and Lewandowski late on.

  • Karim Haggui
    2
    5
    1.50

    Karim Haggui

    Turned far too easily by Robert Lewandowski as the Polish striker nearly made it 4-0 to Dortmund on the hour mark. Gave away some needless free kicks that invited more pressure on his side, and lost his focus late on as the home side scored twice.

  • Mario Eggimann
    1
    5
    2.00

    Mario Eggimann

    Struggled with the decent build-up play from Lewandowski and the overlapping runs of the trio of attackers supporting him as Dortmund ran riot at the Westfalenstadion.

  • Steven Cherundolo
    1
    5
    2.00

    Steven Cherundolo

    Tried to slow the pace of the game down with some decent ball retention in the first half, but to no avail. Fouled his way into the referee's notebook with a cynical block on Marco Reus that resulted in Gotze making it 3-0. Taken off in the second half.

  • Christian Schulz
    0
    4
    2.00

    Christian Schulz

    Lost possession far too often as Dortmund's midfield showed a greater desire for the ball and controlled the game.

  • Christian Pander
    0
    4
    2.00

    Christian Pander

    Endured a torrid time during his 30 minutes on the pitch as Dortmund's right side ran riot. Subbed off before half-time for Jan Schlaudraff.

  • Sergio da Silva Pinto
    2
    2
    2.00

    Sergio da Silva Pinto

    Had very little impact on the game as he failed to get near Dortmund's faultless midfield.

  • Manuel Schmiedebach
    0
    4
    1.50

    Manuel Schmiedebach

    Attempted to impose himself physically on Dortmund's midfield with some robust challenges, but only succeeded in giving away a number of free kicks and picking up a yellow card for a foul on Ilkay Gudogan.

  • Szabolcs Huszti
    2
    5
    2.00

    Szabolcs Huszti

    Barely featured as Dortmund controlled the game, but did manage to provide an assist for Mame Diouf late on as the former Manchester United forward scored a consolation goal.

  • Didier Ya Konan
    1
    10
    1.50

    Didier Ya Konan Flop of the Match

    Subbed off midway through the second half after putting in a ineffective performance.

  • Mame Biram Diouf
    6
    3
    2.50

    Mame Biram Diouf

    Looked to use his pace to trouble Neven Subotic and Mats Hummels but was faced by two defenders at the very top of their game. Scored a late consolation with a well-taken header.

Substitutions

  • Hiroki Sakai
    8
    2
    2.00

    Hiroki Sakai

    Brought on for the captain Steven Cherundolo after the interval and looked comfortable when in possession.

  • Artur Sobiech
    8
    1
    2.00

    Artur Sobiech

    Introduced in the second half for the disappointing Ya Konan but failed to have an impact on the game.

  • Jan Schlaudraff
    0
    5
    2.00

    Jan Schlaudraff

    Replaced Pander before half-time after being a doubt to play in this match. Part of the wall that jumped over Gotze's low free kick that made it 3-0 to Dortmund.
