Hamburg had just four attempts on goal all game, and the Bayern goalkeeper had almost nothing to do. Made one good save from Diekmeier, but that was all: on the day, he had just 19 touches of the ball.
Hamburg never looked a threat, and the Brazilian had an overall convincing - if unspectacular - performance. Was once beaten to the ball by Jansen, however, causing him to pick up a booking.
D. Van Buyten
Given a surprise start in central defence, and took his opportunity very well. Nodded in the opener, and earned an assist when finding Robben. Van Buyten's primary duty was to play well at the back, and he did just that: the Belgian was an absolute rock against his former team, winning an outstanding 10 of 11 challenges.
His resurgence continues: the centre-back never looked in trouble, and did well to cover Lahm when the full-back went forward. Earned an assist late in the game as he nodded the ball to Olic.
Bothered in defence only once, when Diekmeier out-muscled him before shooting on goal. Otherwise, the versatile full-back had a quality performance: even though he was unable to make any overlapping runs, he has found a useful position supporting the attack from a narrower area.
Skillfully made space before firing a perfect finish in for Bayern's second, and almost got a rather fortunate goal after Drobny fumbled his stinging shot. Perhaps not quite as influential as he has been in the past, but linked well with Robben in a supporting role.
Was, like Van Buyten, given a surprise start, and played reasonably well. Booked for a needless foul, but protected the back four and was cool in possession.
Truly takes this Bayern team to the next level. The Dutchman assisted Van Buyten's opener with a perfect free-kick, had the presence of mind to play a quick throw-in ahead of the second goal, and then finished a world class goal to make it 3-0. His only real mistake of the match was heading straight at Drobny early on.
Quieter than he was in midweek, but equally effective in support of the Bayern attack and in protecting the defence. Always could be found near the ball, and was effective in his simplicity.
Has been wasteful this season, and was similarly lacking sharpness against HSV. However, he did manage to score a particularly pretty goal before his substitution; perhaps he is not far from returning to form.
Restored to the starting line-up, it took little time for him to prove that he is a more appropriate No.10 than Toni Kroos. Assisted Ribery's goal with a superb cross, set up Gomez's goal, and was unlucky to be denied by the post late in the first half. He could have had a hat trick, but ended the game frustrated by his failure to score.
Cannot take the fault for any of Bayern's goals, except perhaps the Gomez shot that beat him at his near post. Made a couple of great saves to deny Gomez and Olic, but also fumbled a rather routine ball from Ribery. It was a mixed day for the Czech stopper.
Continues to struggle to adapt to the German game. The English defender was booked for a poor challenge on Robben, and was simply a mess at the back.
Had the one decent chance on goal Hamburg had on the day, and was far more tactically disciplined than he has been in recent games. Stayed deep and accordingly was never caught upfield. Did fairly well to keep Ribery quiet in spells, but the Frenchman nonetheless managed to make enough space to score his goal.
Responsible for marking Van Buyten but left the Belgian with a free header for the opener. Later lost the ball and had to commit a professional foul to stop Muller. The former Schalke man is much better in central defence; as a midfielder, he was powerless to stop the opposing attack.
Badly beaten for pace by Muller at the end of the first half, although he managed to recover and make a last-ditch tackle. Still, the young defender appeared out of his depth; he will need some time to develop a partnership with Mancienne.
Deployed as a starter to help close down Robben, the former Germany international struggled as the Bayern man ran rampant. Vented his frustration with a cynical challenge on Rafinha.
Deployed as a forward to help Son, the German-Turk found himself wandering all over the pitch in search of the ball. Rarely found it, and when he did, possession was quickly taken away.
Back in the starting line-up, the former captain played well individually, although he could not contend with Bayern's quality through the centre. He made himself available and was tidy with the ball, but appears to have lost a yard of pace in his old age.
Had more success closing down Franck Ribery than Jansen did on Robben, but his role changed after Bayern took an early lead. More was expected from him in attack, although this was hardly fair given his defensive nature.
Perhaps fortunate to stay on the pitch after committing a two-footed challenge on Robben in the opening minutes. Later put to shame as he was badly beaten before the Dutchman put in Bayern's third. His opponents had no trouble attacking up their right flank, which serves as an indictment of the 24-year-old's form.
Posed a frustrated figure on the day. Had precious little service and no support whatsoever, and was always a step too late to the ball.
- 22 H. Butt
- 17 J. Boateng
Replaced Robben and looked bright in his 24 minutes of play, but lacked a bit of precision in and around the box. If he sharpens his game, he may become a huge star.
- 30 Luiz Gustavo
- 39 T. Kroos
On for the closing stages, the Croatian forward had one shot denied by a brilliant save, but scored moments later. He is woefully short of match practice, but given time, might be a useful utility man.
Replaced Gomez for the final quarter hour, but was a ghost on the pitch. Touched the ball just once, and is quite clearly not in sync with the Bayern attack.
- 29 T. Mickel
On for the last three minutes.
- 25 P. Skjelbred
- 18 R. Castelen
Replaced the ineffective Tore and added a bit more stability to a HSV midfield that desperately needed strength in numbers at the back. Following his introduction, the visitors looked much sturdier.
Replaced Diekmeier for the final quarter of the match, and along with Kacar, shored up the HSV midfield in the centre.
