Dortmund Players Rated from the 1-3 loss to Bayern Munich

Here’s how the Borussia Dortmund players fared in the 1-3 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga-

Burki- 6

Did little wrong for any of the three goals, as it was his defence that let him down. Made a smart save to deny Lewandowski’s goal early in the second-half. Unlucky to have been unable to save Alaba’s tricky goal.

Bartra- 6

Has been awful at right-back and was found out of position too often today as well. Improved a lot after shifting to centre-back in the second-half and scored a thumping goal, which later proved to be nothing more than a consolation.

Sokratis- 5.5

Somehow got away with a foul on Lewandowski, but suffered a similar fate as he had to be subbed off after colliding with Kingsley Coman prior to half-time.

Toprak- 3.5

Torrid display from the centre-back, who was slow and sluggish throughout the game. Caught dozing for all three goals and was way out of position.

Schmelzer- 5

Provided a lot of creativity in attack but couldn’t deny Kimmich’s cross for the second goal. Was flawless, apart from that.

Weigl- 4.5

Awful challenge to let Coman go away, which led to Bayern’s first goal. Had to cover in for the injured Sokratis, but Lewandowski took full advantage of his poor defending to slot past Burki.

Castro- 5

Was superb at times but disappointing at other times.

Kagawa- 7

Made his side’s first big chance by dispossessing Javi Martinez. Was unlucky to see his shot hit just outside of the post but he certainly deserved to score after a fabulous display.

Pulisic- 8

If you have to describe his performance in a single word, it would be brilliant. Was successful in eight of his 14 take-ons, and should’ve had at least two assists to his name as he tore Bayern apart in the second-half. Had other teammates been on his level, the scoreline would’ve been the other way around.

Yarmolenko- 4

An off-day for the Ukranian, who squandered two glorious one-on-one chances. Even his passing was wayward, and he looked way off the pace as Bayern ran over his side.

Aubameyang- 4

Many people have time and again suggested that the Gabonese does not suit Bosz’s style of play. And that was apparent today again, as the star striker failed to score twice, being denied by Sven Ulreich and then Niklas Sule. Has now not scored in five games in a row.


Toljan- 5.5

Replaced Bartra at right-back and was way better than the Spaniard. However, that isn’t his natural position and he wasn’t flawless obviously.

Gotze- 7

Came on in the 68th minute and after his performance, you’d wonder just why the hell did Bosz not start him. Invigorated his side and was simply brilliant but it was too late for a turnaround.

Sancho- NA

Came on too late to make an impact. Replaced the under-par Yarmolenko with ten minutes of the game remaining.

Subs Not Used– Weidenfeller, Guerreiro, Sahin, Schurrle.
