Midfield star Mario Goetze started for Borussia Dortmund in Wednesday's Champions League semi-final, first-leg at home to Real Madrid, just a day after it was revealed he had agreed to join Bayern Munich.
The 20-year-old has enforced a release clause in his contract allowing him to leave for a reported 37 million euros (US$48.17m) and there had been speculation he would be left out of the semi-final at Signal Iduna Park.
Felipe Santana, who scored the winning goal in Dortmund's dramatic 3-2 quarter-final win over Malaga, had to make do with a place on the bench as Mats Hummels returned at centre-back.
Defensive midfielder Sven Bender came in for Sebastian Kehl, who has a foot injury, with goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller taking over the captaincy.
