Mesut Özil struck an 89th-minute free-kick to rescue Real Madrid CF from a second successive defeat by Borussia Dortmund, a result that leaves the UEFA Champions League Group D standings delicately poised.

The German champions appeared on course for a famous win at the Santiago Bernabéu after a fearless display had earned them a 2-1 interval lead – Marco Reus's strike and an Álvaro Arbeloa own goal coming either side of a Pepe header. With the clock ticking down, however, Özil's set piece outwitted goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller who allowed the ball to bounce in at his left-hand post. The draw keeps leaders Dortmund a point clear of Madrid in Group D.

Reaction

In the first half we made two big mistakes. When you play against great players they punish you. In the second half we were the opposite, we were aggressive and dynamic.

It is always a challenge to prepare for a team like Real Madrid. We were under pressure towards the end of the game, but I am certain that we could have scored a third goal if we had broken through cleanly.

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.

    Özil (Real Madrid) scores!
    A wonderful strike from the German international as his left-footed free-kick goes over the wall and dips just inside the post giving Roman Weidenfeller no chance. A superb strike from the Madrid No.10.
