Final score: 2-2
If some in Madrid hoped for a draw, synonymous with a second place paradoxically avoiding some big opponents in the round of 16, Zinédine Zidane had announced that he had “no calculation to make” before the final of the group F against Dortmund, and that the objective was victory. He did not lie: his team did not calculate but it missed too many chances and was resumed at the end of the match by an opponent after having led with two goals (2-2).
The Real quickly took the game in hand and it is logical that Benzema opened the score (28th) and then again in the second half (53rd).
The Zidane men could then have taken two goals in advance but Weindenfeller was in shape (68th, 79th) and Ronaldo too imprecise (pole in the 78th). It was substitute Reus who equalized (88th) on a service from Aubameyang, allowing Dortmund to finish two points ahead of his opponent in the evening, breaking the record of goals scored in the group stage (21 ).
Player: Benzema gets closer to Henry
Karim Benzema made a great match against Dortmund. Very mobile, the striker was at the origin of all attacks. Accurate with his right foot then with his head on the goals, Benzema reached 50 goals in C1, becoming the seventh-highest scorer in the history of the competition, tied with Inzaghi and a Thierry Henry unit (51 goals including preliminary rounds). It took him 88 games to reach the symbolic mark of 50 goals, less than his teammate Cristiano Ronaldo (91).
