DORTMUND, Germany (AP):

Borussia Dortmund scored a late equaliser to earn a 2-2 draw against Real Madrid in the Champions League yesterday, the latest setback for the 11-time winners.

After two consecutive draws in the Spanish league, Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to have ended the winless run by scoring one goal and helping to set up the other. But substitute Andre Schuerrle struck in the 87th minute to earn Dortmund a point.

Ronaldo put Madrid ahead in the 17th and provided the cross that led to Raphael Varane's goal in the 68th after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had levelled for Dortmund in the 43rd.

Madrid and Dortmund have four points each from two matches in Group F, while Ronaldo has now scored 95 goals in the Champions League and 98 in all UEFA competitions.
