BERLIN - Borussia Dortmund came back twice to share the spoils with Real Madrid thanks to the late 2-2 equalizer from Andre Schuerrle at the second round of Group F in UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

The goals from Christian Ronaldo and Raphael Varane were not enough for titleholders Real Madrid, as Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele and Andre Schuerrle restored parity to share the spoils.

Dortmund started offensively into the game and worked out the first chances of the encounter but neither Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang nor Ousmane Dembele were able to make use of their promising chances in the opening period.

Hence, Real punished Dortmund's wastefulness in front of the goal area as Christian Ronaldo broke the deadlock against the run of the game after poking home Gareth Bale's back-heel pass to mark his 95th Champions League goal from inside the box in the 17th minute.

With the lead behind, the Spaniards retracted and let the hosts do the work. Thomas Tuchel's men pressed for the equalizer but Dembele left another opportunity unused after pulling the effort over the bar from inside the box in the 25th minute.
