PLAYER RATINGS | Bayern Munich 3-1 Borussia Dortmund

Bayern Munich have clinched their 10th consecutive Bundesliga title following their 2-1 win against Borussia Dortmund. Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski put Julian Nagelsmann’s side into a 2-0 lead before Emre Can pulled a goal back from the spot. Jamal Musiala scored a third for Bayern late on.

Bayern Munich – 3

Manuel Neuer, 6

Benjamin Pavard, 6

Dayot Upamecano, 6 – Did a decent job of keeping Erling Haaland relatively quiet.

Lucas Hernandez, 7 – Bayern Munich’s best central-defender on the night. Made an excellent recovery and challenge to deny Marco Reus when the score was 2-1. The Frenchman finally stepping up to his price tag at the Allianz Arena.

Alphonso Davies, 6 – Made a couple of mistakes early on but settled in well. Consistent performance and did his job well.

Joshua Kimmich, 7

Leon Goretzka, 8 – Immense performance in central-midfield. Completed Joshua Kimmich well. Made the most tackles of any Bayern Munich player. Physical and dominant throughout.

Serge Gnabry, 8 – Opened the scoring with a thunderous volley after Borussia Dortmund failed to close the German down. Had a second but was ruled out for an offside in the build-up. Certainly a performance worthy of a new contract.

Thomas Müller, 7 – Played his part in Bayern second goal, assisted Robert Lewandowski.

Kingsley Coman, 6 – Lost possession of the ball on seven occasions, the most of any Bayern Munich player. Always looked to get the better of Marius Wolf but not his best performance.

Robert Lewandowski, 8 – Scored his 33rd Bundesliga goal of the season and eighth against Borussia Dortmund in eight consecutive home games. A superb composed left-foot finish under Marwin Hitz to give Bayern Munich a 2-0 lead.

Others: Jamal Musiala (7), Leroy Sané (-), Marcel Sabitzer (-), Niklas Süle (-), Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (-)

Borussia Dortmund – 1

Marwin Hitz, 6 – Made a superb save to deny Robert Lewandowski from close range at 2-1 but should have done better at clearing the ball for Bayern’s third.

Marius Wolf, 5

Manuel Akanji, 5

Dan-Axel Zagadou, 4 – The Frenchman at fault for Robert Lewandowski’s goal. Wanted too much time on the ball, failed to evade Bayern Munich’s press and tried to play the ball into Emre Can, a pass that was never on. Slow and lethargic. 

Raphael Guerreiro, 5 – Had an opportunity to clear the ball for Bayern’s third but failed.

Emre Can, 5 – Scored from the spot but another poor performance from Emre Can, a player brought in to be a leader in this Borussia Dortmund team. Did however look much better in midfield that in defence, where we’ve seen him play much of the season.

Jude Bellingham, 6 – A difficult afternoon for the Englishman but never stops running.

Julian Brandt, 6 – Had the most dribbles (3) of any Borussia Dortmund player and played some neat one-twos in the first-half. Has improved on his earlier performances.

Marco Reus, 6 – Had an excellent chance to score the equaliser but denied by a superb last-ditch block from Lucas Hernandez. Linked up well with Julian Brandt.

Reinier, 5 – Failed to make much of an impact going forward. Was always going to be difficult for a player that’s only played a handful of games this season.

Erling Haaland, 6 – Perhaps not yet at full fitness following an injury earlier in the year. Relatively quiet game but snatched at a couple of chances late on. His battle vs Dayot Upamecano rather interesting.

Others: Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (5), Felix Passlack (-), Youssoufa Moukoko (-)
