Made two vital saves in the first half to deny Trasch and Pogrebnyak right before half-time. Stunning performance from the veteran as he once again proves that old is gold.

The big Belgian delivered another good performance in the centre of defence. Confident in the air and strong in the tackle.
The Italian had a busy game down the flank, but did not really offer anything breathtaking. Easily bypassed in the build-up to the opener.
in the first half the defender was once again slow, poorly positioned in the and looked insecure in the tackle. Improved after the break, and made a vital intervention in the 75th minute.
The captain had an off day in defence. Too slow to prevent the opener on top of his struggles against Boka and Trasch in the first half. Linked-up well with Robben in attack.
The midfielder sprayed the ball well, but was too reckless in the tackle as evidence by his foul on Khalid Boulahrouz in the second half which almost injured the defender. Scored the winner with a superb header.
The Dutch winger was once again on top of his game as he set-up two clear chances in the first half only, one of which Klose missed and the other Gomez converted. Gave Boka a nightmare of a game on the flank.
The Ukrainian had a solid game in the centre of the pitch, closing down opponents superbly and passing the ball well. Will be sorely missed if he leaves in the summer.
Miss of the season for him as he blasted over the bar from two yards with the goal open. Showed a lot of desire, but his finishing touch was sub-par.
Bundesliga's 'Torjager' once again proved his class with a superb flick to draw the game level. Oozed confidence on and off the ball, silencing his critics for the umpteenth time this season.
The dynamic attack made a few neat passes, but his final ball was not of high standard. Made a few great runs.
Nutmegged for the opener, and caught in no man's land for the winner. Beaten by Gomez with an awkward finish in the 80th minute, but luckily the bar was there to save him.
The Ivorian was caught out of position on far too many occasions, and struggled against Robben on the flank. On the bright side, he attacked very well, despite being ridiculously offside a couple of times.
The ex-Bayern Munich man did not have the best of games as he was poorly positioned for the opener, and was no where to be seen for the winner.
The Juventus target had a so-so game, and despite a few minor errors, had a good game. His positioning at set-piece was not very convincing, however.
The Bayer Leverkusen target delivered a very good performance, tackling really well and running like a man possessed. Showed nice vision with some delightful passes.
Failed to offer any threat down the flank, but did well to minimize the threat of Contento and Muller. Surprisingly, did not commit any of his occasional brutal fouls.
The Borussia Dortmund loanee had a very good game, spraying the ball comfortably, and dictating play. Faded away in the second half.
The Serbian had a torrid time against Tymoshchuk and Schweinsteiger in the centre of the pitch, and spent most of his time defending. Had a one dangerous shot in the first half, but that was all from him in the final third.
Showed quick thinking to surprise Lahm at the far post to score the opener, and generally had a good game. A promising talent, and one to watch for in the future.
Missed a glorious chance in the first half, which would have given Stuttgart a point. Nowhere to be seen after the break.
The ex-Werder Bremen man is not the most talented player around, but sure has a heart of a winner. Did superbly to assist the opener, and never stopped fighting.
