On Saturday, the Bundesliga got off to the start after the break. Bayern Munich faced Borussia Dortmund in the 135th edition of the Der Klassiker, at the Allianz Arena. Dortmund opened the scoring after Thomas Muller lost the ball in the midfield and Julian Brandt gave a through to Karim Adeyemi who did not make any mistake and put it past back Sven Ulriech.

Bayern tried to open the scoring several times but they failed. In the last 10 minutes, the game was sealed by the visitors after Julian Ryerson scored the 2nd goal. Harry Kane pulled one back but was ruled out due to offside. The visitors break the curse after 10 years and win a game in Allianz Arena. In the article, we will be looking at the player ratings of the game 

Here are the ratings from the game: 

Bayern Munich 

Sven Ulriech- 6  

Ulriech was decent in the whole game, however, he made a brilliant save in the early stages of the second half for the home side. But he 

Joshua Kimmich- 8 

Kimmich was exceptional in the right side of the team and delivered some dangerous crosses and corners, one of which could have ended up in the goal. He was good with the defensive task as well, he was the creator of most chances for the Bavarians. 

Mathias de Ligt- 7 

De Ligt had a satisfactory game with no such defensive task to do as the visitors were defensive after scoring the opener. The Dutch defender was good with his positioning and blocking as well. 

Eric Dier-7 

Dier also had a decent game, but he had the chance to pull one back for the side in the first half after his header was blocked from a corner. The centre-back was good with his defensive task and kept Niclas Fulkrug quiet.   

Alphonso Davies-5 

Davies could not find the right pass and failed to support in the attack as well. The Canadian left-back failed to keep up the expectations and was thus changed during the hour mark of the second half. 

Konrad Laimer-6 

Laimer made some good third-man moves from the middle and was good at snatching the second ball in the midfield but he was denied scoring by the defence of the visiting team.  

 Leon Goretzka-6 

Goretzka tried some shots from outside the box, but he failed to deliver. He was sluggish in the middle of the park and the transition did not happen fast and quick.  

Leroy Sane-7.5  

Sane was good in the wing matching up with Kimmich, made some good inside and outside cuts but he failed to find the back of the net as his shots were beautifully blocked by Dortmund's defence.  

Thomas Muller-5.5 

Muller's involvement in the game was not up to the mark as he could not perform as a No.10 and help find some openings for the side. Eventually being changed in the second half.  

Jamal Musiala-6 

Jamal Musiala has not found the right track in the game and failed to deliver in the crucial game. Musiala was surrounded with players with never let him dribble past into the box and thus was changed in the 63rd minute of the game. 

Harry Kane-7 

Kane had the best of chances in the game, but if he had converted one then the home side might have won the game. He missed an open header to put it back past the Dortmund keeper. However, he scored one in the dying minutes before but it was cancelled due to offside.

 Mathys Tel-5 

Tel was involved in one of the chances for the side to open the scoring but the defence of the Yellow side did not let it happen.

Mats Hummels-10  

Hummels was the standout performer in the game. The amount of courage he showed against his former side was exceptional he was outstanding. The 35-year-old made sure that no ball went past him and blocked every possible goal-bound shots and silenced Harry Kane and for his performance, he was named as the Player of the Match as well.

Schlotterbeck was overshadowed by the performance of Hummels, but he paired up beautifully with his teammate and silenced the likes of Sane and Muller.

Maasten had a decent game with Kimmich running in towards him, In the late second half of the game he was troubled by the pace of Koman, Tel and Mazraoui but he lived up and did not let the home side open the scoring  

Emre Can-6.5 

Can was decent in midfield and was the transition from attack to defence of playing the passes to his teammates. He was the destroyer as well keeping those through balls away from the defense.  

Felix Nmecha-7 

Nmecha had a great chance of sealing the game in the early stages of the second half but could not due to an excellent save from the Bayern keeper.

Jadon Sancho-5.5 

Sancho did not have the best game as he failed to create chances in the wing and was looking very slow in the wings, however, he was changed in the last few minutes of the game. 

Niclas Füllkrug-7.5

Füllkrug with the form he was in was silenced by the Bayern defenders as he was not let to play his game and thus could not score as well, shooting only two shots at the goal.
