One or two smart saves, but his positioning was a little suspect and in the end, he would be disappointed with being beaten four times.
Couldn't manage to stake his claim in this one, and though there were one or two promising instances, it was all ultimately in vain.
His positioning on the first Bayern goal was extremely suspect, and allowed Muller all the time he needed to blast home. Never really recovered after that, and looked nervy thereafter.
Had one or two authoritative challenges on Robben, but otherwise appeared as helpless as the rest of his back four to stop Bayern.
Was actually shaping up as Koln’s best defender on the evening, before his unfortunate own goal early in the second half that put the match forever out of the home side’s reach.
Given a tough time of it by Ribery, and always looked to be a step behind the Frenchman whenever they squared up on the flanks.
Left chasing shadows with regularity, and coughed up possession with the same consistency to boot. A forgettable showing, and put out of his misery in the second half.
Managed to find himself in space a few times to potentially hurt Bayern on the counter attack. However, his endeavour never managed to find a reward, and he faded as the game progressed.
Never came close to getting into the game, as the Midfield trident of Kroos, Schweinsteiger and Muller simply rang rings around him.
Could not find a way to align his central play to Podolski’s determination in moving into the channels. His movement was timed all wrong, and he was subbed at the half after an invisible game.
The lone beacon of quality for the home side throughout the match. As has been shown countless times throughout this season, he is simply too good for this Koln team. His pace, directness and jackhammer of a left foot gave Bayern constant problems, and he put the only Koln goal on a plate.
Made a crucial save from Podolski with the game still up for grabs, but was left helpless by Tymoshchuk’s poor defending for Koln’s only goal of the game.
Supported the attack solidly with a few marauding runs down the right flank. Did not always fare well defensively though, as Podolski was able to cause him a few problems on the break.
Never put under too much pressure in the heart of defence, as the threat from Koln came mainly from the flanks. Did a decent enough job of marking Jajalo.
Exhibited some positive signs with an energetic and enthusiastic display in both halves of the field, but one or two hairy lapses in concentration at the back meant that a bit of the shine was taken off his performance.
Got roasted for the only Koln goal of the game, failing to get near Novakovic and allowing the substitute an easy finish. Not exactly the most encouraging signs for Bayern ahead of the Champions League and DFB Pokal finals.
A solid game from the midfielder, as he seemed happy to sit deep and play a supporting robe and leave the more ambitious central play to Kroos. Held onto the ball well, and was usually quick to track back into his own half on the occasional Koln break.
With Koln forcing many of their attacks forward down his flank, Robben was often left in a lot of space to receive the ball. He was constantly a threat with his directness, and put the game beyond Koln’s reach with Bayern’s third goal early in the second half.
Has arguably been Bayern’s best player this season, even ahead of the prolific Gomez, and showed it today with another devastating game in the attacking third. His play from the channels caused constant danger, with two deliveries from out wide leading to two Bayern goals. The only shame was that he was unable to register a goal himself.
Given free reigns to dictate play from a central position, and kept the Bayern machine constantly ticking over with incisive and accurate passing. Set up Roobben’s goal, but was taken out of the game around the hour mark.
As ever, his movement and precise runs caused the Koln defenders no end of problems. He did have his chances to score, but it wasn’t to be as he finally conceded the Bundesliga top scorer race to Huntelaar on the last day of the season. Still, 26 league goals is nothing to scoff at.
Aligned great off the ball movement with a willingness to get involved in the attack. Scored in either half – a well-taken finish and an impudent heel flick – to help Bayern seal the points. The Bavarians will no doubt hope that he can take this kind of form into their two cup finals to come.
