Niclas Füllkrug (6/10)

Füllkrug found it difficult to get involved in the game due to Borussia Dortmund's lack of attacking intent. But when he did get on the ball, his hold-up and link-up play was pretty solid. He also set up Bynoe-Gittens for the goal that was ultimately disallowed for offside.

Ramy Bensebaini (5/10)

Bensebaini offered more defensive security after coming on to replace Wolf at half-time. But he also had moments of discomfort against the dangerous Stuttgart forwards. His impact going forward was also very limited.

Julian Brandt (5/10)

Brandt had some encouraging moments during the five-minute period in the second-half when Borussia Dortmund actually looked dangerous. But that was as good as it got for him.
