It's fair to say this has been the season of Arjen Robben. The Dutch international earned the highest marks in our community ratings for yet another game, this time earning his 12th community Man of the Match award this season, after notching two goals and two assists in Bayern's 6-0 defeat of Paderborn. This was Robben's second time carrying away the top spot against SC Paderborn as he also won it in the Hinrunde fixture that Bayern won 4-0.

It's been all Robben since the start of the Rückrunde as this his was fourth time leading the pack since the restart and his third time in that many games of posting a rating about 4.5. The Dutch international has scored 6 goals in these six performances leading Bayern Munich to three wins despite some lackluster attacking play at times.

Rounding out the rest of the top performers in the 6-0 romp were Franck Ribery and Robert Lewandowski, their contributions tallying an impressive three goals and two assists between them. David Alaba once again showed that he may be one of the best defensive midfield players Bayern Munich has earning a rating far above of that of his midfield counterpart Xabi Alonso and commensurate with the impact and control he imparted on this match.

Mitchell Weiser got a huge bump for scoring his first Bundesliga goal after coming on an as a substitute, who traditionally rank much lower in the ratings. Sebastian Rode's impressive replacement of Xabi Alonso (along with his assist on Weiser's goal) did not go unnoticed either as he earned a solid boost while it was Holger Badstuber who took home the top spot in the backline.

Overall, it was a solid win against a low strength opponent and Bayern Munich graded out as such. It was the ninth match of the season that saw every player earn ratings above the 3.0 mark
