DISBELIEF: Zinedine Zidane

Zidane gutted after Real throw win away.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane could not hide his frustration after his side conceded a late equaliser to draw 2-2 at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Substitute Andre Schurrle’s 87th minute rocket pulled an impressive Dortmund side level for the second time in the game, denying Real a 
victory that would have taken them three points clear at the top of Group F on Tuesday night.

Dortmund had wasted a series of chances to equalise before Schurrle struck, but Zidane still lamented his team’s failure to kill off the game, having also conceded a late leveller to draw 2-2 at Las Palmas last Saturday.

The Real legend says: “We’re broken because we played well in defence and attack and played how we wanted to play

“In the end it’s always the same and this is the third game now. I’m broken for the players, because this is not what they deserve.

“At the end of the day it’s not a bad result, but when you play like this, you feel broken.”

Real looked to be on their way to a victory after Raphael Varane tapped in to restore their lead midway through the second half, after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo’s opener.

Schurrle’s late leveller signalled a third successive draw for the European champions, who had won 16 games in La Liga until drawing 1-1 with Villarreal last week.
