The first lot of fixtures for Matchday 2 of the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League took place around Europe on Tuesday night.
Groups E, F, G and H were in action in Europe's premier club competition which, as per usual, threw up a number of intriguing results.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 95th Champions League when firing home in the 17th minute before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted his seventh of the season in all competitions with an easy finish just before half-time.
Raphael Varane had the ball fall kindly for him and duly reacted by rifling Real into the lead on 68 minutes before a fierce Andre Schurrle strike three minutes prior to regular time gave Dortmund a share of the points.
The other group fixture saw Sporting Lisbon comfortably account for Polish side Legia Warsaw 2-0.
First-half goals from Bryan Ruiz and Bas Dost, his fifth in five matches, had the Portuguese giants on the way to a vital lot of three points which has them within striking distance of group leaders Real and Dortmund.
Spurs are now just a point behind the side that beat them on Matchday 1, AS Monaco, who needed an injury-time leveller from Kamil Glik to force a 1-1 draw with Bayer Leverkusen who hit the front in the 73rd minute when Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez helped himself to his 100th goal since arriving in Europe from Mexico.
'The Dragon Slayer' Islam Slimani, who joined the Foxes from Sporting in the summer, made it six goals against the Dragoes in 2016 with a 25th-minute header from a lovely Riyad Mahrez cross to give Claudio Ranieri's side a perfect start to life in Europe.
In Denmark, FC Copenhagen kicked into gear in the second half to beat Belgian side Club Brugge 4-0 thanks to goals from Thomas Delaney, Federico Santander and Mathias Jorgensen, after an own-goal from Stefano Denswil, to see the Danes go second on the group table.
Miralem Pjanic kicked things off and Gonzalo Higuain score this 5th goal in just his third Juventus start in the first half before Paulo Dybala and Dani Alves (first Euro goal for the club) added to the scoreline in the second lot of 45 minutes.
Wednesday night sees the European action continue with Groups A through to D, highlighted by last season's finalist Atletico Madrid's hosting of German powerhouse Bayern Munich and Manchester City's trip to Celtic.
