Real Madrid vs. Borussia Dortmund: 7 Lessons Learned from Group D Blockbuster

We still have two more matches to play, but this year's Champions League Group D matches are already proving to be some of the most exciting the competition has ever produced.

With another dramatic, late equalizer, Real Madrid proved that while they may not be the better team in 90 minutes against the other domestic champions of Europe, they can never be counted out.

This time it was Mesut Ozil who would score from a free kick. Before that, Marco Reus and Mario Goetze were the two best German midfielders on the pitch.

While Los Merengues won a point in the end, Jose Mourinho will certainly not be happy with the match or the result.

Playing at home and with a stronger team, a win was always the goal for the Spanish champions. Unfortunately, nearly every individual on the team had a poor match and were outplayed for large stretches of the game.

Jurgen Klopp will definitely enjoy the result. Getting any points from the Santiago Bernabeu is a tough task.

However, he will also regret letting the full three points slip through his fingers at the very end.

In this piece I will discuss the play from both sets of players and the decisions from their managers that decided yet another exciting Group D matchup.
