"Dortmund kidnap a point", says the international press

The majority of the international papers think Dortmund deserved more at the Bernabéu and that Özil's strike saved a Madrid who weren't superior.


"Dortmund kidnap a point", says the international press

Bild: "Oh no. Özil robs Klopp of a super-victory." After 89 minutes and at 2-1 up, the draw was conceded with a free-kick from Mesut Özil. With a win the German team would have practically been in the last sixteen. But goals from Marco Reus and an own goal by Arbeloa weren't enough to get victory.

Sportbild: "Özil stuns Dortmund in injury-time." Jürgen Klopp's team challenged the Spanish giants at the Santiago Bernabéu and still have the best chances to get to the last sixteen of the Champions League.

La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Borussia, magic in Madrid but Özil saves Real." With a great team performance in the first-half, the Germans had Mourinho scared. He made changes and in the end got the deserved goal from the ex-Werder Bremen man.

L'Equipe: "Madrid and City avoid the worst." The Madrid players were demanding almost until the end a penalty for a challenge on Kaká. They didn't get it, just as they didn't manage to snatch the first place in the group two weeks after their defeat in Germany.

Zeit Online: "A stubborn Dortmund obtained the draw in Madrid." Until the 89th minute Borussia were close to upsetting Real Madrid. Then Mesut Özil arrived. The favourites didn't win, not for a lack of will but because they met very strong opponents. Dortmund have great chances with what remains of the group stage.

Die Welt: "Dortmund kidnap a point in Madrid." Dortmund gave Madrid a good fight, but couldn't get more than a draw. Mesut Özil got in the way of a second consecutive win against the Spanish champions.

Olé: Real Madrid gave away the first half, and against a great Dortmund managed an agonizing draw thanks to the deftness of Özil. The Germans remain leaders in the group of death and look likely to do big things.

Record: "The daring Germans silenced the Bernabéu." After the defeat in Germany the 'merengues' (Madrid) only managed a draw at home in the end.
