Dortmund’s late equalizer denies three points for Real

Andre Schurrle struck late for Borussia Dortmund to draw 2-2 with Real Madrid, denying the Spanish giants 3 points in Group F of the UEFA Champions League.

Real took a surprising lead with a Cristiano Ronaldo strike at the 17th minute following a fine counter. The Portuguese man was also lucky that referee Mark Clattenburg did not spot his clear handball in the area while defending a free-kick.

However, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang still managed to level the scores for the Bundesliga club following keeper Keylor Navas’s error.

Raphael Varane put Zinedine Zidane’s team ahead again by tapping home, before Schurrle scored the final goal of the game.

The German international came off the bench and drilled high into the net at the 87th minute from inside the box.

Within the same Champions League group, Sporting Lisbon picked up their first win after defeating beat Legia Warsaw by 2-0. Bryan Ruiz and Bas Dost were on the scoresheet for the Portuguese side.

The match results meant that Dortmund and Real now both have four points, but the German club leads by goal difference. Sporting Lisbon stands at third with three, while Legia Warsaw remains without a point.
