Kevin Trap: Blameless for both goals. Otherwise little checked. For sports director Markus Krösche, he is the best German goalkeeper this calendar year in terms of his performance and consistency.
tuta: Neglected his defensive duties at 1: 3. Afforded a flank into the evening sky. A little away from his best.
Kristian Jakic: Nominated by Croatia for the World Cup. Kneeled in as defense chief as usual and had to take a lot. Didn’t always make the right decision.
Evan Ndicka: Acted routinely. But he wasn’t without mistakes.
Junior Dina Ebimbe: Goal scorer to 3:0, but missed the goal to 5:2. Need to learn more about defending.
Daichi Kamada: No goal or assist this time. But still pacesetter with its technology and overview.
Djibril Sov: As a soloist with assertiveness, he worked his way up to 1:0. Confident ball conqueror and good ball distributor.
Ansgar Knauff: With a lot of power and energy. Could hardly be stopped by his opponents.
Jesper Lindstrom: Scored the 4:2 and could have increased his goal tally (six Bundesliga goals). Was involved in the first three goals. Bursting with joy of playing. Tricked and pushed the pace. And had remarkable hack tricks in his repertoire.
Mario Götze: Key point. Professional with outstanding precision. With an 88 percent pass rate. A feast for the eyes, how he handles the ball. How he celebrates the direct pass with incredible ease. How he increases the gait or slows down. He too can do it with the hoe.
Randal Kolo Muani: source of strength for unity. The Frenchman could hardly be stopped and shot the 2-0 with force. Unsurpassed as an assist provider: has ten assists in the Bundesliga. But not nominated for the World Cup.
Hrvoje Smolcic: Came into play for Jakic. Decent appearance.
Rafael Borre: Got a chance of parole in place of Lindstrom. With one or the other unfortunate action.
Luca Pellegrini: Replaced knob. Consistent when defending.
Lucas Alario: Was allowed to play for Kolo Muani. Permanent status as short-time worker.
Almamy Toure: Replaced Dina Ebimbe. His first appearance after a long injury break.
