The goalkeeper was helpless for the Arsenal goal but played fairly well, making several confident blocks.
Decent performance from the German international defender who made several superb interceptions throughout the game. A real leader in the Dortmund back line.
The Serbian centre-half looked a little off the pace in the first half at times but he recovered well and was a solid base to build attacks from in the second period.
Solid defensively and was always looking to attack the Arsenal defence, even if his delivery into the box was a little poor at times.
The left-back did not enjoy his game this evening. He looked uncomfortable at times against the pace of Walcott and he failed to provide a decent attacking threat going forward.
The left winger had a very poor game. He was always looking for the ball but wasted it on a number of occasions. His finishing and crossing left a lot to be desired.
The Japanese attacker was a real dangerman at times for BVB tonight. Arsenal struggled to cope with his pace and movement in the attacking third. However, he did fizzle out a little in the second half.
Sluggish performance from the captain who made a rare start in the midfield. He may have added some experience to a young side but his sloppy pass was the reason for Arsenal taking the lead.
Not bad from the young German who kept his passing simple and was always looking to start off attacks for his side. His team, however, could have done with someone a little more creative than him in midfield.
The German wonderkid was a livewire throughout. Arsenal struggled with his movement and his link-up play with Kagawa in particular. Could be a star of this season's Champions League.
Average from the Pole who was guilty of been wasteful in front of goal on a few occasions. He linked well with his fellow attackers but his side needed him to have his goalscoring boots on.
Impressive display from the Polish No.1 who made several important stops to deny the Dortmund onslaught. Had no chance with Perisic's volley.
Solid from the Frenchman who dealt easily with Grosskreutz on the wing. He could have perhaps attacked a little more.
Energetic performance from the young left-back who impressed going forward and was always on hand to help his centre-halves out defensively.
Shaky start from the giant German who struggled with Dortmund's movement in the first half. However, he improved as the game went on and make some top clearances.
Top performance from the former Lorient man who made several brave last ditch blocks and tackles. Improved as the game went on.
Broke up play brilliantly for the away side and constantly got back to help his defenders out. Tired a little as the game went on but nevertheless, a solid performance.
Making his first start for the Gunners, the Israeli showed some touches in the first half but faded a little in the second with Dortmund in the ascendancy.
The England international performed well tonight, grabbing an assist for Van Persie's opening goal of the game. Made a few nice runs down the wing before being replaced late on.
R. van Persie
Took his goal beautifully and worked hard for his side, making sure he got back to defend corners and set-pieces. Led by example tonight - a class act.
Frustrating evening for the Ivorian. The former Lille man was full of running and was not afraid to get at the Dortmund defence but was often found to be isolated.

Entered the game late and played well, creating several chances for his side who were pushing for a late equaliser.
- 8 Antônio da Silva
Late cameo from the Egyptian who saw his shot in the 93rd minute blocked by Koscielny.
The Croatian came off the bench to score a superb equaliser for BVB. No goalkeeper in the world would have stopped his classy volley.

- 20 J. Djourou
Made his debut tonight but was not on the pitch long enough to make a real impact.
Replaced Walcott late on and made some smart interceptions in his brief cameo.
Replaced Van Persie in the final few minutes but did not touch the ball.
