Real Madrid survive Borussia Dortmund comeback in Germany


Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid shared the points in a thrilling match at the Westfalenstadion, in which the home side dominated possession and chances on goal.

Dortmund made a strong start to the match, pressuring the Real midfield and creating good space in attack through Moussa Dembele in particular. However, the German side’s insistence on playing high up the pitch left them vulnerable and Real pounced, as Ronaldo finished a swift counter-attack to put the visitors in front.

The home side began the second half more conservatively, and Real were able to regain the lead in the 68th minute, as Varane found the net at the right end of the field.

However, Dortmund were relentless in their assault of the Madrid goal and were duly rewarded with another equaliser through substitute Andre Schurrle. It set up a nervy finale for Real as waves of Dortmund players flooded forward for a winner, but the Spanish side held on for a point.
