It was a frustrating night for Real Madrid as they lost ground to Borussia Dortmund at the top of Group F in the Champions League by only a mustering a 3-3 draw with Legia Warsaw.

Zinedine Zidane will feel particularly disappointed to see his side leave Poland with just a point after seemingly being in control of the match at 2-0 in the first half.

However, the home side responded via three goals without reply and nearly pulled off a shock victory were it not for Mateo Kovacic's late equaliser.

Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema were Madrid's other goalscorers on another unusually quiet evening for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese forward was kept at bay for most of the game and was given little more than scraps to feed on over the course of the 90 minutes.

Nevertheless, one small humorous clip of his performance has been thrown around the internet tonight.

Most Manchester United fans will remember how flashy Ronaldo was when he first arrived at Old Trafford - always trying a trick to humiliate his opponent.

He has certainly toned down his style since then but the 31-year-old still tries to pull off the odd bit of skill here and there every so often.

And the Madrid star was made to look a little silly after his attempt at a 'no-look pass' fooled everyone - including his own teammates.

As you can see by the video below, Ronaldo initially received the ball inside the Legia box but brought it out to the right-hand side, where Bale was lying in wait to be given possession.

Yet Ronaldo must have assumed Madrid's No.11 was about to burst down the wing beyond him and laid on a through ball while looking in the opposite direction.

Had he actually kept his eyes on where he planning to hit the pass, he would have spotted that Bale had made no such run. Instead, the ball harmlessly ran towards the touchline.

Madrid are now two points behind Dortmund with just two games to play but tonight's results mean there will be even greater pressure on Zidane's men to beat the German giants on matchday six to secure top spot.
