Real Madrid have suffered a Champions League setback with defeat at Borussia Dortmund.

Mesut Ozil's 89th-minute free-kick rescued a point for Real Madrid from a pulsating 2-2 draw with Borussia Dortmund to keep both sides on course to qualify from Champions League Group D.

Marco Reus had deservedly put the German champions in front on 28 minutes with a spectacular volley from Robert Lewandowski's knockdown, but Pepe levelled for the hosts six minutes later with a bullet header from Ozil's cross.

The visitors went back in front seconds before the break thanks to Mario Gotze's chip over Iker Casillas that found the net via a deflection off Alvaro Arbeloa, but Madrid were much improved after half-time and finally got level thanks to Ozil's perfectly placed free-kick.
