Made a couple of great saves, not least when he got down to toe a Huntelaar effort around the post and was generally solid. Could do little about either goal.
The young defender, one late tackle in the second half aside, was in fine form, keeping Huntelaar shackled for the most part and leading the defence well.
Came into this game half-fit and it showed. He often had no answer to Draxler and was turned far too easily for the first goal.
Was involved in the own goal but can count himself unlucky, as can Schuster. Was key in defending from set pieces and helped frustrate Huntelaar.
Was perhaps guilty of not getting down the left quickly enough on occasion but did well in the second half, keeping Farfan largely quiet and putting in a couple of crosses.
Made the Freiburg goal to give his side hope, sprinting the length of the pitch and feeding a team-mate before the ball fell kindly to him to tap home.
Forced a great save from Hildebrand which led to the goal and set up a chance for Schuster with a cunning dummy in an accomplished performance.
Was thrown it at the deep end, making his debut in one of his club's most important games ever, but acquitted himself well, making a few threatening runs and some tidy passes.
The skipper will go to bed tonight cursing his luck after scoring the decisive own goal but could do little about it. Otherwise, he was solid in midfield, attacking with intent and defending well.
The Congolese midfielder was a typically commanding presence in midfield, driving his team forward, but he had worryingly little cutting edge when it really mattered.
Was making his final appearance for SCF and did not disappoint with a threatening performance throughout, making several runs.
Remained largely troubled through the first half, claiming a few crosses and gratefully gathering the ball after a toe from Matip.
Was a rock at the back for his side throughout the first period, making a number of interceptions. Was quieter in the second half but kept things tight.
Had a fairly understated game, keeping things tidy at the back. He was often the man to hoist forward a clearance and made one great run into the Freiburg box.
Got forward well in support of Farfan but lost the ball in his own feel on one occasion when in the opposition box. Made a couple of great interceptions at the back too.
Put in a typically accomplished performance, making some great blocks at the back and keeping Freiburg's attackers quiet.
Took his goal brilliantly, bending a beautiful shot into the far corner from the edge of the box. Was always the most dangerous player on his side and almost set up a second, only for Huntelaar to drive wide.
Helped anchor things in midfield with Jones often the one to push forward. Made the right passes, kept his position well and got some tackles in - exactly what was required of him.
A typical Jones performance - busy at the back, making a number of interceptions and driving forward but should have done far better with a chance right at the end of the first half. Made amends by forcing the winner, though.
Was a lively presence down the right but often failed to make the most of the position into which he got himself. His willingness to track back was refreshing.
Had some bright moments when he went forward but was often lacking the composure to finish. Worked his socks off though and can certainly be happy with his efforts.
Perhaps should have done better on a couple of occasions here, not least when he drove a shot wide and glances a header off target. Worked hard, though and set up Draxler's goal.
