BVB Coach: Real Madrid not Champions League favourites

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did his best to impress Madrid with a brace to wipe out Dortmund's 2-0 deficit, but Ronaldo became the first-ever player to score in all six Champions League games, before Vazquez's volleyed home the victor with 10 minutes left. Borussia Dortmund head coach Peter Bosz is unconvinced despite his side's 3-2 loss at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, the struggling German visitors - who were already guaranteed to drop into the Europa League - conceded a late goal and lost 3-2.

Real boss Zinedine Zidane made five changes to his starting XI having already been assured of second place in Group H.

Real Madrid and Sevilla face the final game of their respective Champions League group games on Wednesday night.

"They were not very strong tonight".

Dortmund have had a disastrous competition and have just two points after five games, although they still have a chance of qualifying for the second stage of the Europa League if they are able to match the result APOEL get in London.

"We wanted to continue in the Champions League", Bosz added. RB Leipzig were forced to settle for a Europa League spot in their debut European campaign.They lost 2-1 at home to group winners Besiktas, for whom Talisca scored a last-minute victor after Naby Keita had cancelled out Alvaro Negredo's early penalty opener. We still have to improve our level of performance, today went very badly.

Lewis added that while Everton can not give Aubameyang European football or guarantee it in the future, they have the finances to offer a hefty transfer fee for the Gabon worldwide, as well as an attractive deal to the player himself.

New Everton manager Sam Allardyce is reportedly eager to launch a £60 million bid to try to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

The Spanish right winger hailed other goal-scorers Mayoral and Ronaldo, claiming Real Madrid has a lot on display for the league ahead. But if you play a bit deeper, you have to be all the more aggressive in those zones.
