Real Madrid lead the way in Group H, with Borussia Dortmund now facing a daunting ask of qualifying after having lost both their games so far.

72' Ramos is caught out of positon and Dahoud has the chance to find Aubameyang with a regulation pass, but overhits it, with groans ringing out in the stadium!
...
70' Lovely football! Ronaldo is found in space on the right, and fakes a shot, to pass to Carvajal  on the overlap, but his chipped cross to the far post cannot find a Madrid shirt!
...
68' Replays show that Bale was clipped, but the defender had gotten his toe to the ball. A correct decision from the referee then...
...
67' SO CLOSE! Gotze with another magical lofted pass finds Aubameyang making a darting run to the near post, but the Gabonese striker only manages to toe poke the ball wide!
...
66' Borussia Dortmund look favourites to score at  the moment, with the hosts now having 52% of the possession overall, a huge improvement from the first half.

...
63' Julian Weigl goes into the book for a crude foul on Cristiano Ronaldo

...
53' Omer Toprak goes into the book for clattering into Isco from behind. No arguments there.
...
51' The Yellow Wall is still singing to their credit, but there's an air of despondency as Dortmund pass the ball around at the back without any urgency. It seems Zinedine Zidane's side is all set to become the first ever Real Madrid side to win at the Westfalenstadion.

49' THE GOAL 'DROUGHT' IS OVER! Toni Kroos sends Gareth Bale clear down the left wing, and he outpaces Sokratis, before sending in a peach of a low cross for Cristiano Ronaldo to tap in from the penalty spot!

...
Well, it may be Ronaldo's landmark appearance, but all the talk is about Gareth Bale's stunning strike! Is this the moment where his Madrid career turns around? Or is it another false dawn.

Either way, the second half is coming up soon. Stay tuned!
...
HT: Borussia Dortmund 0-1 Real Madrid
...
45+1' HOW DID HE MISS?! Toni Kroos sends in a peach of a delivery from the left corner and it finds Ramos is space in the box, but he glaces his header wide with the goal at his mercy. Unbelievable!
...
45' 1 minute of added time.
...
44' BLOCK! Toni Kroos chases a cushioned header from Bale and sets off on the counter, spreading it wide to Ronaldo on the right. The Portuguese star cuts inside on his left foot and looks to have dummied two defenders and then lets fly, only for Toprak to find himself in the way. Moments later Ronaldo has a similar chance in the box, but shoots wide of the near post with a low drive. 
...
41' Yarmolenko sends in a tempting ball in from the left corner, with Philipp attempting an audacious overhead kick that's...well it wasn't good.
...
40' Aubameyang sends the free-kick straight into the wall, with the ball going out for a throw in - not his night so far. However, Yarmolenko is full of endeavour and earns a corner of Nacho a minute later.
...
40' Luka Modric goes into the book for not retreating quickly enough as Dortmund lined up a free kick in a promising position.
...
38' OFF THE POST! After a couple of panicked clearances, the ball falls to Aubameyang in the box, and he toe pokes the ball past Navas, only to watch in agony as it hits the outside of the post. To spare him his blushes, the offside flag is up!
...
36' What a waste. Peter Bosz looks rather unhappy as Sahin has all the time and space in midfield to send in a cross to the numerous yellow shirts in the box, but opts to shoot, sending a wild effort into Row Z.
...
33' CRUCIAL INTERCEPTION! Casemiro loses the ball in midfield and the ball makes its way to Gotze, who finds Aubameyang bearing down in goal on the edge of the box. The Gabonese striker's first touch is a tad heavy, which allows Carvajal to rush in and make a crucial clearance!
...
32' The Yellow Wall scream for a penalty as Philipp and Carvajal engage in a drag race down the left wing, only for the Spanish fullback's hefty shoulders to guide the youngster out of the way. The ref isn't listening to the crowd anytime soon...
...
30' Aubameyang's Madrid audition isn't going too well at the moment. Gotze finds the Gabonese striker with just Ramos to beat, but despite twisting and turning multiple times, he's unable to get away from the Madrid captain.
...
29' Gareth Bale goes into the book for elbowing Sokratis (I'm not about to type his surname) while challenging for an aerial ball.Didn't seem deliberate at all and the Welshman can consider himself unlucky.
