The Borussia Dortmund players covered 119 kilometres between them – four more than their Real Madrid counterparts, who had more shots (21-8), dominated possession (62 percent) and won more tackles (58 percent). Here we bring you the match facts.

Courageous: It was the third time BVB had struck a double at the Bernabeu. But having drawn 2-2 on the previous two occasions, two goals was not enough to secure a point this time around.

Marksman: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his 24th and 25th international goals for Borussia Dortmund on his 44th European appearance.

Early concessions: BVB conceded two goals in the opening 12 minutes of a match for the first time ever in Europe's elite club competition.

Team spirit: As they did last year, when they drew 2-2, the Black & Yellows fought back from 2-0 down against Real at the Bernabeu. This time, though, they were narrowly beaten as Madrid grabbed a third in the closing stages.

Third place: For the first time in the history of the UEFA Champions League, two points was enough for a team to secure third spot in the group. (br)
