UEFA Champions League 2017-18: Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund

A Gareth Bale opener and Cristiano Ronaldo double saw the visitors through at Signal Iduna Park, with the Bundesliga leaders only able to muster a single goal through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Frenchman praised his players for a focused and disciplined performance and for not losing their cool when Dortmund pulled a goal back early in the second half to make it 2-1 and set up a nerve-wracking final 25 minutes.

Liverpool have drawn their opening two games after they came from behind to earn a point at Spartak Moscow in Group E.

FC Porto earned its first group win by stunning Monaco with a pair of goals by Vincent Aboubakar and a late strike by substitute Miguel Layun.

Sevilla head Group H after a 3-0 win over visiting Maribor, Wissam Ben Yedder scoring twice before the break and making it three from the penalty spot seven minutes from time.

With Cristiano Ronaldo suspended to start the season, Real Madrid struggled to start the season. Carvajal found space 30 yards from goal and clipped a fine pass into the path of the Wales star, who sent a sublime volley into the top-right corner, leaving Burki stranded.

Champions League action resumes on Tuesday, with Matchday 2 of the group stage.

Both Ronaldo and Bale had been questioned as Madrid missed chances and dropped points in La Liga recently, but Zidane said he was happy that both were back on the scoresheet. Even before Tuesday, Germany had already surrendered the second spot in the UEFA coefficient table to England, with less than half as many points as the Premier League this season, and tonight's two defeats have only made a bad situation worse. A victory in Istwould not only give their youthful charges much-need confidence going forward, but would provide a solid base in the club's big to qualify for the knockout stages in its first attempt.

Besiktas, meanwhile, is exceeding all expectations. We couldn't pressure the ball in almost every moment of the game.

"We can not be pleased with the amount of opportunities we have created lately".

He has forged a partnership - dubbed Philameyang by the German media - with left-winger Maximilian Philipp, who has scored four goals in his last three games.
