Jose Mourinho was delighted with how his Real Madrid side reacted from being a goal down at half-time to claim a 2-2 draw with Borussia Dortmund that keeps their chances of progression to the last 16 of the Champions League on track.

Marco Reus' strike and an Alvaro Arbeloa own-goal either side of Pepe's equaliser had given the German champions a 2-1 lead at the break. But after introducing Jose Maria Callejon and Michael Essien at half-time, Real proved to be the dominant side and they got the equaliser their pressure merited a minute from time through Mesut Ozil's.

And the Real boss said: "They had too much time on the ball without pressure in the first half but in the second it was completely different. The team was quick, dynamic and aggressive and I liked it a lot."
