A late goal by Andre Schurrle saved a point for Borussia Dortmund as they got a 2-2 against Real Madrid at the Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday in the Champions League.
Dortmund came back twice in the game to secure a point. Real Madrid took the lead through Cristiano Ronaldo in the 17th minute after a nice backheel pass by Gareth Bale inside the penalty area. The Germans tied things up shortly before halftime through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Madrid retook the lead in the 68th minute through centre back Raphael Varane. But Shurrle’s strike in the 87th minute saved a point for Dortmund, who tops Group F with 4 points, with Madrid sitting in second level on points. Real manager Zinedine Zidane was disappointed not leaving Germany with the three points.
“We are, and I am frustrated,” Zidane said after the game. “We played a good game in attack and defence and it was a great effort from everyone. We played the game we wanted. At the end, the same again, it’s the third match. I’m frustrated for the players because it’s undeserved. It’s not a bad result, but playing like we did, with chances we had and being 1-2 up with three minutes to go…”.
“We played well from the first to the 90th minute. If they get a goal right at the end… Sometimes in football you go on a bad run but we’ll get through it.The tough thing is telling the players that they deserved better from the game. With the effort they put in on the pitch, it’s difficult to find the words for them. But they’re intelligent and we’re going to rest up, prepare the next match and turn this around.”
