Thomas Meunier (3/10)
It was another dire display from Thomas Meunier, who looked very much out of sorts in attack and also in defence. If Julian Ryerson's injury will keep him out for an extended period, signing a new right-back may well be on the agenda for Sebastian Kehl and co.
Emre Can (5/10)
Can did some good things but also looked shaky at times as he filled in at centre-back for Mats Hummels. He failed to provide any stability to the BVB defence, as Darmstadt threatened to cause problems in and around the final third time and time again.
Nico Schlotterbeck (7/10)
Schlotterbeck played with minimal fuss and had a solid game overall. He did a good job of leading the Borussia Dortmund defence and showed glimpses of the storng form we saw from him during parts of the first half of the season.
Ian Maatsen (7/10)
Having only joined Borussia Dortmund on Friday, Maatsen slotted straight into the starting XI. With that in mind, the Netherlands full-back put in a fairly impressive performance. He made some very shrewd forward runs and showed great energy. Maatsen also came close to grabbing an assist in the first-half with a cross to Julian Brandt.
