Player Ratings: Augsburg 0-2 Bayern Munich

Die Roten struggled to overcome their Bavarian rivals and reach the DFB Pokal quarter-finals, but goals from Gomez and Shaqiri led the 10-man visitors to victory

By Daniel Edwards

    Alexander Manninger

    Had little chance to keep out Gomez's effort, but came back with a strong debut performance that included a wonderful stop from Schweinsteiger.

  • Ragnar Klavan

    Ragnar Klavan

    Stood out with a perfectly-timed intervention in the second half that denied Schweinsteiger when the goal was within his sights.

  • Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker

    Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker

    Was caught out at the end as Augsburg threw everything into attack, allowing Shaqiri to steal in and liquidate the encounter, but was solid up until then.

  • Matthias Ostrzolek

    Matthias Ostrzolek

    Played the game far upfield as Augsburg looked for a way back into the tie and didn't want for effort, but added little of substance to the home team's attacking forays.

  • Ronny Philp

    Ronny Philp

    Struggled to contain Ribery during the opening exchanges, most notably for the goal; but came into his own once the Frenchman was back in the dressing room.

  • Daniel Baier
    2
    0
    3.50

    Daniel Baier

    One of the best players in home colours, passing the ball well and always trying to find a way through Bayern's defence.

  • Tobias Werner

    3.00

    Tobias Werner

    Worked hard in the midfield and acquitted himself well, but needed to show more precision in dead-ball situations to take advantage of an indisciplined Bayern.

  • Andreas Ottl
    3
    1
    2.50

    Andreas Ottl

    Did not use the spaces on the left well enough, and was shackled by Alaba for large periods of the game.

  • Koo Ja-Cheol

    3.00

    Koo Ja-Cheol

    Escaped with a yellow following the scuffle that saw Ribery sent to take an early bath. Struck the post with an excellent shot that threatened to open the scoring.

  • Torsten Oehrl

    2.50

    Torsten Oehrl

    Was given plenty of space to operate on the left hand side of attack, but too often failed to use it and did not link effectively with Molders.

  • Sascha Mölders
    1
    2
    3.00

    Sascha Mölders

    Always lively as the sole man up front, tested Bayern's defence a number of times but lacked definition in the area to make it count.

Substitutions

  • Knowledge Musona
    4
    2

    Knowledge Musona

    Another late throw of the dice by Augsburg as they threw attackers into the mix.

  • Aristide Bancé
    2
    1

    Aristide Bancé

    A late substitution for Klavan as the hosts pushed men forward, but to no avail.

  • Manuel Neuer
    114

    4.50

    Manuel Neuer Top of the Match

    Came up with two stunning stops in the first half to keep his clean sheet intact, frustrating the Augsburg attack. Inspirational.

  • Dante
    43

    3.00

    Dante

    Was rattled after Ribery's expulsion, earning a yellow card. Rather fortunate not to give away a penalty for an inadvertent handball, but he was competent enough for the most part.

  • Philipp Lahm
    45
    5
    3.00

    Philipp Lahm

    Always reliable down the right hand side, passed the ball well and did not let anything by him.

  • David Alaba
    35
    15
    2.50

    David Alaba

    A rather subdued display from the full-back, who was strangely ineffective going forward and pulled out of position on more than one occasion.

  • Daniel Van Buyten
    33
    7
    3.00

    Daniel Van Buyten

    Given the start ahead of Boateng, the Belgian did not always look comfortable against the lively Molders but worked hard to keep the defence intact.

  • Franck Ribéry
    49
    32
    2.50

    Franck Ribéry Flop of the Match

    Was one of Bayern's most influential men during the first half, laying on the goal - but let his temper get the better of him with an absurd sending off.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    132
    3
    4.00

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Was comfortable and accomplished in the creative role, showed great vision to open Ribery's path to goal during the move that led to Gomez's strike. Took the second goal well to end the match as a contest.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    50
    4
    3.50

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Desperately unlucky not to get on the scoresheet in the first half, denied by Manninger's acrobatics and the woodwork.

  • Toni Kroos
    37
    8
    2.50

    Toni Kroos

    Drifted in and out of the match, struggling to pose a consistent danger to Augsburg especially after Ribery saw red.

  • Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
    39
    12
    3.00

    Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

    The midfielder's most telling contribution was a brilliant effort from long-range that appeared to cross the line after smashing against the bar. Withdrawn on the hour for Martinez.

  • Mario Gomez
    54
    8
    3.50

    Mario Gomez

    Was not exactly spoilt for opportunities, but took his chance in the best centre-forward tradition to put Bayern into the ascendancy.

Substitutions

  • Javi Martínez
    56
    5
    3.00

    Javi Martínez

    Entered for the last half hour, and was invaluable in Bayern's effort to slow down the tempo and keep the ball.

  • Mario Mandzukic
    43
    14
    2.50

    Mario Mandzukic

    Entered for Gomez and squandered an excellent chance to put his side 2-0 up before Shaqiri made no mistake.

  • Thomas Müller
    59
    4
    3.50

    Thomas Müller

    Made a telling contribution in his 15 minutes on the pitch, setting up Shaqiri for the second goal.
