Could not be blamed for the Leverkusen goal, after being badly let down by his defence, and later produced a fine stop from Son to keep his side in the game.
Dragged out of position a few times by the movement of Can on his side of the field.
Looked out of his depth once again, and was at fault for the opener after losing possession deep in his own half and allowing Leverkusen to counterattack.
Defended decently, but did not offer much in attack. Competent but little more.
More solid than his defensive partner Friedrich, but he was still left scrambling once or twice to defend against a few Leverkusen attacks. Sent off late on for two silly yellow cards.
One of Dortmund's better players, as he flashed through a few good passes. But his best work came in fits and starts. Just did not offer a consistent threat.
Worked his socks off as ever, but could not get into any space and, as a result, was stifled for most of his time on the pitch.
Kept the ball moving well during the few positive spells in possession that Dortmund enjoyed and played his part off the ball as well.
Had been performing reasonably well before being forced off through injury in the second half.
His first touch and execution left a lot to be desired but his pace ensured that he remained a decent outlet and attacking threat.
Try as he might, the Polish frontman could not get any change out of the Leverkusen defence. A frustrating outing.
Never forced into a truly world-class save, but he did stop a Reus shot at the death to preserve Leverkusen's lead.
Took care of everything on his side of the field and supported the attack extremely well.
Handled everything that Lewnadowski threw at him during a storming game at the back.
Was having a strong game up until he stupidly went in two-footed on Lewandowski, resulting in a straight red that, luckily for him, did not end up costing his team.
Put in a tireless shift in the middle of the park as always, closing down the opposition well and adding to Leverkusen's superb defensive showing.
Resourceful rather than incisive out on the right, but still was an asset for his team in the attacking third.
A brick wall in front of the defence, hounding the opposition and making a number of key tackles around the penalty area.
Strong in both halves of the field, covering his flank well and causing real danger when he cut in onto his right foot from the left in the attacking third. A wonderfully dynamic display.
Took his goal superbly, and though Leverkusen did not attack much in the second half, his off-the-ball movement made him a constant danger.
Held the ball up well, as usual, and battled very hard against the Dortmund centre-backs. A good spearhead.
