Dortmund's Schürrle denies Madrid at the last

André Schürrle's late equaliser denied Real Madrid victory at Borussia Dortmund after Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphaël Varane had struck either side of Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang's goal.

2016/17 highlights: Dortmund 2-2 Real Madrid

The spoils were shared as Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid drew 2-2 in an entertaining Group F encounter.

Dortmund looked to take the game to their visitors, only for a speedy Madrid counterattack to end in Cristiano Ronaldo's 95th UEFA Champions League goal.

Madrid seemed comfortable and content to sit back, until Keylor Navas's inability to hold a free-kick gave Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang the chance to force in an equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

Raphaël Varane was the quickest to react after Karim Benzema's volley rebounded off the post to restore Madrid's lead after the break. Just as victory appeared secure, however, André Schürrle's late thunderbolt ensured a draw for his side.

Key player: Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang (Dortmund)
The Gabonese forward was a constant thorn in the Merengues' back line with his tireless running and constant pressing. He showed his predatory instincts as he was in the right place at the right time to make it 1-1, while his presence in the box afforded Schürrle the room to score the late equaliser.
