Who was the man of the match?

Tip Of The Cap: Manuel Neuer. Yes, it was his fault that the one save that he had to make, but it was a pretty nice save. Neuer's failed clearance fell to the foot of Marc Stendera, and he ripped a shot at the Bayern net. Neuer dove to his left and palmed the ball away to preserve the 0-0 scoreline. Bravo, Mr. Neuer. Now, please don't make any more mistakes.

Golf Clap: Javi Martinez. Thankfully, Martinez is rounding into form FC Bayern. Since returning from his injury, Martinez has slotted in at centerback for the injured pair of Mehdi Benatia and Holger Badstuber. He's fantastic and put together a great defensive performance on the day.

Standing Ovation: Jerome Boateng. The German put together a great performance at centerback. He's easily in the discussion for "World's Best Centerback" and continues to show it week after week. As Boateng has showed on numerous occasions this season, his passing can be a difference maker for FC Bayern. Against Frankfurt, he played a deft pass over the top that Robert Lewandowski scored, but the Polish striker was called offside.
