Marius Wolf (3/10)
Wolf’s poor start to the season continued as he had a game to forget against Heidenheim. The make-shift right-back struggled defensively and turned the ball over in the lead-up to the away side’s first goal. He also failed to make any impact going forward.
Niklas Süle (5/10)
Süle had a rather solid first half but was far from his best after the break. The former Bayern centre-back was too casual at times, and failed to organise the BVB defence as it was falling apart.
Nico Schlotterbeck (5/10)
Like Süle, Schlotterbeck did not make any major errors. But he did look shaky at times and also came close to scoring an own goal. The Germany international did play some excellent forward passes in the first half.
Ramy Bensebaini (5/10)
Bensebaini was caught out of position on a few occasions, including in the build-up to Heidenheim’s opening goal. He also missed a glorious chance to score in the second half.
