Made a decent, if unconvincing, stop from Boateng in the early minutes. Otherwise was only minimally pressured, and did not make life easier for himself as he spilled Van Buyten's header and made a very poor giveaway to Kroos in the closing stages.
Facing his former team, the Dutchman showed the kind of form that once prompted Bayern to sign him. Got the better of Muller, and more impressively, Robben, throughout the match.
A rock at the back for Hoffe, the Ghanaian cleared one shot off the line, and later made a tremendous block to deny Muller. Won almost every challenge he engaged in, and kept Bayern largely silent through the middle.
A bit less flashy than his partner, Vorsah, but equally effective. Bayern posed almost no threat whatsoever in the centre, thanks to the centre-back pairing. Had Hoffe's best chance of the game as he flicked a header on goal early on, forcing a splendid save.
Kept Ribery in check over the first 45 minutes, then did the same to Muller and Alaba. Strong in the challenge, and he put in a tremendous amount of work on the day. A superb performance from the 24-year-old.
The former Stuttgart man had a tall task on hand in containing Bayern in the centre, but rose to the occasion. His positioning was tremendous as he served as a central plug to deny any inside passing.
Clean in possession and had a number of attempts on goal, but most of his shots were from far too great a distance to truly test Neuer. He might have deserved a penalty, though, after taking on Van Buyten.
Had some bright moments but some very awful ones as well. Nearly gave Gomez a goal in the early stages, and was very wayward with his finishing.
Less active on the ball than the other Hoffe midfielders, the 22-year-old made the best of his minimal time in possession by making all the right moves. Ran and ran and ran, and received a roar of applause upon his substitution.
Given a free role, he got the better of a number of defenders at different times but lacked a clinical edge. Faded in the second half and was replaced by Musona.
The former Liverpool man came into Saturday's match in excellent form, but was not quite able to make the difference. His dribbling and strength posed trouble for Bayern's defence, and he regularly took on his markers. Unable to convert with a bicycle kick, however, and a couple of times was just barely stopped.
Showed just why Bayern paid such a princely sum for his services as he ensured a draw. Made one phenomenal save from Compper in the opening minutes, and his nerves were on ice for the 90 minutes even though he was put under plenty of pressure. An absolutely top class performance.
Made a great run early and almost scored, although he could have done much more to support Robben after the Dutchman's introduction. Generally convincing in defence, although he once cheaply conceded possession and might have gotten away with a penalty late
Made one loose clearance in the early stages, but was otherwise perhaps the most impressive member of the Bayern defence. Bailed out his team-mates, particularly Van Buyten, on numerous occasions.
A bit of a mixed bag. Made a few world class challenges, but also some awful mistakes, particularly as he let Firmino past him on 66 minutes.
D. Van Buyten
Very unconvincing performance from the towering Belgian, who was caught flat-footed on more than one occasion. and was fortunate not to concede a penalty. Had a good header on goal, but at the back he was quite poor.
With Hoffenheim pressing with such intensity, the Ukrainian was found to be a bit behind the pace. Left a bit too much space open and while his passes were generally accurate, he did needless misplace the ball a few times.
Pressured in possession and was unable to distribute with the kind of accuracy he usually offers. Rather good in his defensive duties, but very ineffective in his role as a builder of the Bayern attack.
Played a nice 1-2 with Gomez early on, but lacked decisiveness. Took too long to shoot when given a look at goal early in the second half, and side-footed an attempt from distance when he should have gone for power. Just doesn't create enough goals given his role as a No. 10.
Only minimally involved in the first half, and perhaps was fatigued following an extended run of games on short rest. A bit off the pace and unable to trick Beck. Replaced by Robben at half-time.
One of the few bright spots for Bayern. Played in a gorgeous ball to Gomez early in the second half, and brilliantly took down a cross before having his finish blocked by Vorsah.
A hero in midweek, he simply had no service against Hoffenheim. once was involved in a nice 1-2 with Kroos, but otherwise was anonymous. Replaced by Alaba before the hour mark.
- 1 D. Haas
- 26 A. Ibertsberger
- 29 J. Vestergaard
Replaced Williams for the final 20 minutes, and his introduction saw a decline in quality in the Hoffe midfield. Made one good run up the centre but was otherwise a disappointment.
Came in for the final 17 minutes but only received the ball twice. His introduction was a bit too late; by that time Hoffenheim were in defensive mode.
On for the final five minutes but was unable to make a difference.
- 19 V. Ibišević
- 22 H. Butt
A surprise replacement for Gomez before the hour mark, the Austrian brought much-needed energy and pace to the Bayern attack but was kept under wraps by Beck.
- 26 D. Contento
Replaced Ribery at the half and was very ordinary. Never had space to run at defenders, and accordingly, never looked to be a threat on goal.
On for Van Buyten to play in a defensive role, the Brazilian deputised effectively in the centre and Bayern were not put under much pressure during his quarter hour on the pitch.
