BVB Coach: Real Madrid not Champions League favourites

Fernando Llorente of Tottenham Hotspur celebrates after scoring his sides first goal with his Tottenham Hotspur team mates during the UEFA Champions League group H match between Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur clinched top spot in Group H, followed closely behind by Real Madrid, and BVB will have to settle with challenging for Europa League glory after dropping down in the last-32 stage of the competition.

Up front, they could again be without Gareth Bale due to a calf problem. "We have to look for solutions".

"I feel for the injured players, today it is Varane, but that is why we have a squad", added Zidane, who didn't rule out the possibility of reinforcing the squad next month.

Real's Spanish striker Borja Mayoral got his first Champions League goal in the eighth minute with a chipped finish from close range while four minutes later Ronaldo struck for the sixth group game in a row, sending a wonderful curled shot into the top corner from outside the box.

"The important thing was to pass through the group stage".

"We wanted to end the group phase well with a win".

That could put them on a collision course with group winners Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United or Paris Saint-Germain, but Ronaldo remains confident.

However, Ronaldo believes the 12-time winners are capable of an upturn in form in the new year to carry them to a third straight Champions League title.

Dortmund fought back from 2-0 down to level the match against the two-time defending champions thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's quick-fire brace in Madrid on Wednesday.

"Unbelievable. We have to be very happy because it's very hard in the Champions League, but to be better than Real Madrid in the group is unbelievable". Lucas Vazquez then grabbed Real's victor nine minutes from time.

"[The Champions League] is a competition that I really like to play in", he said.
