Arsenal

Wojciech Szczesny 5

For the second game in a row an attempt - Van Buyten's – was pushed meekly back into play for an opponent to convert

Bacary Sagna 5

Confidence hit by recent traumas. This was not the all-action display of old even if he tried to push down flank. Booked

Per Mertesacker 3

Slow to respond to Kroos at Bayern's opener and was flat-footed to allow Van Buyten to get away at the midfielder's corner

Laurent Koscielny 4

Nervy in defence and gave away the ball for Bayern's opener. He rather shrunk in the face of the onslaught.

Thomas Vermaelen 5

Filling in at left-back and clearly targeted as Bayern flooded down that flank, even doubling up on him. Booked

Jack Wilshere 8

Burst away from three players into the box summed up his desperation to make an impression. Provided all his side's energy

Mikel Arteta 5

His wild lunge into Madzukic earned a booking and summed up the team's early sense of panic. Tidy enough in possession.

Aaron Ramsey 5

Bypassed too easily, with the leg dangled at Müller's cross suggestive of a player off the pace. Happier going forward. Booked

Santi Cazorla 6

Initially so bright, bursting down the right, but faded. Arsenal needed him to be inspired to wound such solid opponents

Lukas Podolski 6

Peripheral through the opening period but burst into the contest and nodded in Wilshere's corner to give some hope. Booked

Theo Walcott 7

Sprightly when offered the chance to spring into space and run at back-pedalling defenders. His efforts never dipped

Bayern Munich

Manuel Neuer 5

Utterly untroubled until his focus wavered at Wilshere's second-half corner. But later blocked smartly from Giroud

Philipp Lahm 8

So sparkling when overlapping down the right, and never shirked his defensive duties. His delivery, too, was outstanding

Daniel Van Buyten 7

Tested by Walcott on the turf but was still a barrier, blocking from Mertesacker and winning the header at Müller's goal

Dante 7

Might have used his recent Brazil debut down the road at Wembley as a sighter. Aggressive and impressive

David Alaba 5

Troubled at times by Walcott's running and even dumped on the turf by Sagna. But Arsenal could not properly hurt him

Javi Martínez 8

Can a player who cost £34m be a bargain? He was precisely what so many 'contenders' in England, not least Arsenal, lack

Bastian Schweinsteiger 7

Not always the tidiest in possession, but still capable of muscling his way forward. Booked and out of return

Thomas Müller 8

A menace down the flank and smartest to react when Szczesny palmed out Van Buyten's header. Booked

Toni Kroos 9

Brilliantly crunched finish from the edge of the area to deflate Arsenal's early resolve. Gunners never truly suppressed his threat

Franck Ribéry 6

Bayern could afford the Frenchman his quiet game, even if there were still clever touches, glides and passes

Mario Mandzukic 7

The striker was a real power in the air, and might have converted Lahm's cross just before the break with a thunderous header
