Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane addresses 'rift' with Cristiano Ronaldo

CONFIDENT DORTMUND After their shock 1-0 defeat at newly-promoted RB Leipzig a fortnight ago in the Bundesliga, Dortmund have netted 20 goals in the four games since.

Raphael Varane and Andre Schurrle would score a goal each in the second half as the Champions League match ended 2-2.

"The players played a geat match, the result is a hard one to accept because we deserved a bit more, but it is not a bad result", Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said.

In the aftermath Zidane said: 'We're broken because we played well in defence and attack and played how we wanted to play.

"Everything is normal. Cristiano wasn't the only one angry after the game but it's over now and we are thinking about tomorrow's game", the 44-year-old said.

"I am very proud of the game we played, but when you concede three minutes from the end it hurts, especially given the effort the players put in".

After the restart, Dortmund started where they left off yet they remained sloppy with their finish allowing Real Madrid to grab the lead again after Varane poked home a square pass from Karim Benzema to make it 2-1 on the scoreboards in 68th minute.

The German media said on Wednesday that Borussia Dortmund's draw in their Champions League match against Real Madrid was "deserved" and argued that after the team's strong performance in the first half, the final result should have been in their favour. The forward won out and tied things up after Cristiano Ronaldo had opened the scoring.

Keylor Navas made a good stop from Gonzalo Castro's free-kick, while Ousmane Dembele twice fired over the bar.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was standing in close quarters, and he was officially credited with the goal. "It is evident in the first goal I made a mistake", he said post game.
