Dortmund go top after beating Real

Published 2 Comments

Borussia Dortmund claimed a 2-1 win over Real Madrid in Germany to go top of Group D in the Champions League.

Robert Lewandowski netted a 36th-minute opener for the Germans and, although Cristiano Ronaldo cancelled it out within two minutes, Marcel Schmelzer hit the home side's winner in the 64th minute.

Manchester City lost 3-1 to Ajax in the group's other game to leave Dortmund top ahead of Jose Mourinho's men, while City sit bottom with just a point from their first three games.
