Only goal he had a chance with was Mandzukic's, in which he rashly came off his line to try and claim the ball out of the air. Apart from that kept the score relatively low with a couple of great saves from the Croatian and Muller.
Struggled terribly to deal with the drifting runs of Muller and the overlapping runs of Rafinha, and most of Bayern's play went down the right-hand side. However, improved when came up against Robben, as he regularly clawed the ball away from the Dutchman.
Positioning was way off at times as he stepped out rashly to make a few challenges, which never really came off. Displayed next to no communication with his central defensive partner, Marcelo.
Languished in the box for far too long after a free kick which saw him play Thiago onside for Bayern's second goal. Was involved in a running duel with Mandzukic and gave as much as he got, winning a number of headers against the Croatian.
Got up and down the right wing well and aimed to get up and help out as an extra attacker, albeit his final ball could have been better. Kept Gotze at bay fairly easily as the German wasn't at his best, but didn't spot the overlapping runs of Alaba, who ran freely past him.
Didn't see as much of the ball at his feet as he would have liked as he was basically employed as an extra defender to track the runs of Alaba. Didn't fair too well, as he committed a few lazy fouls down the wing.
Was the catalyst for the tempo in the opening stages as he relentlessly pressed the Bayern midfield and hardly gave them time on the ball. However, as time went on he sat deeper and deeper and didn't affect the game as much with his passing.
Was Hannover's brightest player during his time on the pitch and caused Bayern a few problems with his pace and his runs down the left. However, had to be withdrawn with injury in the first half.
Failed to track the late run of Muller and allowed the German to drift into the box unopposed to open the scoring for Bayern. Couldn't deal with the intense tempo of the match and looked fatigued when he was replaced in the second half.
Squandered his side's best chance of the first half as he attempted to take the ball beyond Starke inside the box with an extra touch, only to see his eventual shot saved. Had a couple of other shots that went wayward but did pose a threat with his runs in the channels.
Almost clawed a goal back for Hannover in the second half when he bulleted a header towards the corner which was saved by Starke. Put himself about up top on occassion but on the whole, was well marshalled by Javi Martinez.
Saved Bayern from going a goal behind early on when he rushed off his lined and remained big to deny Rudnev's strike. Was shaky at times at the back as he was rather laid back in possession, but pulled off a superb save from a Diouf header.
Didn't have anything to deal with defensively which came him free roam of the park down the left wing. Got into the box with some wonderful bursting runs, but final ball could have been better. Set-pieces didn't improve from his penalty miss in the Champions League.
Came back into midfield after returning to full-back midweek, and acted as a foil to Schweinsteiger's diagonal passing with his short, incisive passes in the middle of the park. Not the most marauding performance, but competently protected the back four.
Displayed a terrific engine down that right-hand side and was always available for a pass and on the overlap down the wing. Notched up a couple of assists as he hit the byline and found Muller for the opening goal and clipped a cross to the back post for Mandzukic.
Tested Zieler in the opening stages as he cut in from the right and lashed a strike towards the bottom corner. With Martinez sitting deep, this allowed him to make bursting runs from the back and act as the catalyst for some attacks.
Seamlessly slotted in at centre-back and was rock solid in his defending. Won just about every header from balls launched up top and utilised his positional sense to great affect as he was always in the right place at the right time to intercept balls inside the box.
Set the tone for his return from injury early on as he picked out two world-class diagonal passes to the wings within the first five minutes. Orchestrated the first goal with a lovely pass down the right for Rafinha and assisted Thiago's strike with a superb clipped ball to the back post.
Slotted in just behind Mandzukic and linked up superbly well with Lahm in the middle of the park as he received the ball to feet from the German. Got on the scoresheet with a fantastic touch and volleyed finish at the back post.
Was employed on the left-hand side but typically always looked to cut inside and pick out passes inside rather than hitting the byline. Was neat on the ball, but his performance lacked a penetrating dribble or incisive pass to affect the play.
Was involved in a battle with Marcelo at the back and came off second best a few times, but ultimately caused huge problems with his presence inside the box. Tested the keeper with a few shots and eventually grabbed his goal with a cushioned header at the back post.
Continually drifted in from the right to act as an extra centre forward and did so to great affect for his opening headed goal in the first period. Grabbed his second with an assured touch and finish just inside the box and generally was a menace in the final third.
