Borussia Dortmund seized control of UEFA Champions League Group D with a thrilling victory over Real Madrid CF.

An enthralling encounter became all the more intriguing when Robert Lewandowski fired Jürgen Klopp's side in front on 36 minutes, only for Cristiano Ronaldo to swiftly equalise with his fifth European goal of the campaign. As a breathless game unfolded after the break between two former winners of this competition, Marcel Schmelzer ultimately sent the Bundesliga team to the top of the section with a left-foot volley just after the hour.

  • Schmelzer's first European goal clinches victory

  • Madrid's first defeat in Europe this campaign
  • First time Ronaldo has scored and lost in the competition
  • Lewandowski also on target, getting 36th-minute opener

Reaction

This game will surely give my players a boost of confidence. We always want to play well but unfortunately it is not always possible to play like we did today.

We've lost a game but the consequences are not too dramatic. We have six points and have two games to play at home. Achieving the necessary points to qualify is within our grasp.
