Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Bosz doesn't think Real Madrid should be considered favourites to win the UEFA Champions League this season.

Vazquez saw a powerful drive held by Burki as Madrid stepped up a their attempts for a winner, which Ronaldo thought he had when he swept home Casemiro's knockdown only to see the flag up for offside.

The result does not change the complexion of Champions League Group H. Real Madrid progress to the knockout stages in second place behind Tottenham. Earlier this year he became the player with the most penalty kick goals in Champions League history, with 12, one more than Lionel Messi.

But four minutes later it was Ronaldo who took centre stage, the 32-year-old claiming yet another record with a display of exquisite technique. "I scored, I helped the side win".

Also, Liverpool, Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk, all won on to clinch the last remaining berths in the round of 16 of the tournament.

It's a nice goal and the record is important, too. Nacho is the only fit centre-half and Marcos Llorente is the only candidate to partner him. That agreement ended in 2016, however, with the governing body reintroducing its own accolade once again - 'The Best' Fifa Men's Player.

"You see few people going out on the street these days".

"Let's hope he gets more of them and that's positive for everyone".

He even wore his new Air Force 1 CR7 trainers for the trip, complete with a golden swoosh and eye-catching white style.

"He won't be there Saturday that is for sure".

He was lethal in counter-attacks and deserved his brace. He had 22 touches of the ball, less than any of his teammates, including the 'keeper Navas (26).

Mayoral put the hosts ahead eight minutes into the match with a close-range shot after a move that started with a pass by Ronaldo to Isco inside the area.

The winner of the prestigious award will be announced on Thursday 7 December at 6.45pm. He may be forced to play at centre-half against Sevilla.
