The Germany international didn't have a great deal to do apart from pick the ball out of his own net, and didn't make any saves.
The defender won plenty of aerial battles in the opposition penalty area, and drove forward with regularity to support the attack, in a committed showing.
Struggled against the pace of Kruse and Raffael, but did well in the second half as he prevented the away side from breaking forward.
A poor showing from the right-back, who provided a few crosses from the right, but was ultimately left exposed with Herrmann and Kruse enjoying themselves against him.
Pressed forward whenever possible, but his half clearance led to Gladback's opener as Herrmann capitalised to assist Raffael.
The youngster looked bright in the first half, having a few good efforts at goal, but faded when pushed out to the right hand side.
A steady game from the defensive midfielder, who won the midfield battle against Kramer and Nordtveit.
Plenty of work and commitment as always but the execution just wasn't there from the utility man. Offered little going forward.
Had a couple of poor long range efforts but spread the play quite well. An average performance from the former Real Madrid man.
Had a great chance to score but crashed his effort off the bar in a game in which the Gabon international was otherwise quite quiet.
Strong and physical but struggled after being crowded out whenever he touched the ball. Played some intelligent flicks to feed other chances.
M. ter Stegen
Made a few top drawer saves, the best of which being a reflex save to palm a Lewandowski strike around the post from 10 yards out.
Made an important block in the late stages and was solid in the air as Gladbach looked to nullify Lewandowski.
Perhaps fortunate to not concede a penalty for handball after blocking a strike but the captain was solid, keeping tabs on Aubameyang and Hofmann.
A battling and physical performance from the Spaniard, who battled to ensure that the away side left with a historic win.
Did well in the opening 20 minutes, making some important challenges, but then found it difficult to cope especially when Nordtveit left for an early shower.
Didn't offer much going forward nor from set pieces, but offered Daems protection against the overlapping Piszczek.
His foolishness nearly cost his team the game as two yellow cards in two second minutes earned him a red card for needless challenges.
Provided a couple of dangerous crosses from the right flank and didn't really struggle against Grosskreutz whatsoever.
His pace was dangerous down both flanks, but he was wasteful with two good chances in the first half.
Took his goal well, improvising to turn the ball home, and his pace and power were a thorn in the Dortmund defence's side.
Took his goal excellently, sending Weidenfeller and Piszczek the wrong way to turn the ball home into an empty net and ending his nine game goal drought.
