New club, new start
His Mexican colleague
Two shots, one goal:
Hasan 'Brazzo' Salihamidzic (left, VfL Wolfsburg) was particularly accurate with his passes, 91 per cent of which reached their intended destination.
Timm Klose (right, 1. FC Nuremberg) was one of the main factors behind his side's clean sheet against Hertha, winning 77 per cent of his challenges.
Hoffenheim new boy
No way through: Central defender
Mr Reliable: Despite playing slightly out of position at right-back, Greek newcomer
Room for improvement:
Every single one of new Bayern defender
Can do better:
Bayern's brand new right-back
Patrick Ochs (right, VfL Wolfsburg) had only 37 touches and won just seven of his 18 challenges.
Olcay Sahan (left, 1. FC Kaiserslautern) had a rather pedestrial Bundesliga debut, getting 49 touches and winning 41 per cent of his tackles. Lukas Schmitz (right, SV Werder Bremen) had a better time of it, hit parried shot leading to Rosenberg's opener.
The disappointment was written all over their faces: Midfielder
Tunay Torun (right, Hertha BSC) was brought off at half time after an ordinary first half in which he had just 24 touches and failed to get a single shot in on goal.
Michael Mancienne (right, Hamburger SV) showed his potential with 80 per cent of tackles won, but it counted for little as the Red Shorts went down 3-1 against Dortmund.
Christian Fuchs (left, FC Schalke 04) may have won 83 per cent of his tackles, but he was culpable for both the goals his side conceded.
Richard Sukuta-Pasu (right, 1. FC Kaiserslautern) won only two of his 21 challenges and was unsurprisingly substituted at half-time.
