Real Madrid hosted Germans Borussia Dortmund and finished their game in a 2 - 2 draw. Top Group spot goes to Dortmund which managed to come from behind to equalize the encounter. News for Madrid was the start of James Rodriguez, who later showed some good Football & a pass that was converted into goal.
Real Madrid had a great first 30 mins & then never again controlled fully the match to seal the encounter and give the Germans the final knock out. Borussia grew in confidence & created numerous chances including a free-kick that Navas miraculously saved.
While Real Madrid was up 2 - 0 by the 53rd min:
- Benzema 28th min
- Benzema 53rd min
- Aubameyang 60th min
- Reus 83rd min.
Bitter-sweet finish for Real Madrid which perhaps expected more but have themselves to blame, while the Germans put in a grand performance & deserved their result.
Sevilla FC travelled to Lyon needing a draw to stay in Champions League. The final result 0 - 0 draw achieved the objective although Lyon put in a better game. Gritty stuff from the Spaniards which had flashes of brilliance, including claiming a penalty on Vitolo not called.
Lyon however put forward the Football & deserved a better result, but they are the Team that leaves Champions League behind.
