Dortmund qualify for next stage of Champions League, but Spurs lose at Wembley and Real Madrid are held in Warsaw in a six-goal thriller.


In the final matches on day four of the Champion’s League Group F saw Dortmund prevail versus Sporting Lisbon 1-0, while the Legia Warsaw Real Madrid match saw two late goals to leave the score 3-3.

It means Dortmund leapfrog Real into first place and are qualified for the next stage. Sporting stay in third.

In Group G English champions Leicester could only get a goalless draw against FC Copenhagen to lose their 100% record, while Porto beat Club Brugge 1-0.

Leicester stay top while Porto move into second, and Brugge remain bottom and pointless. It means the English side is guaranteed at least a third-placed finish, so the Foxes’ European adventure will continue.

Lyon scored a late equaliser in Italy to surprise Juventus who led for most of the encounter, but Seville made the most of home advantage by thumping a ten-man Dinamo Zagreb 4-0.

It means the Spanish side goes top of Group H, while Juventus drop to second. Lyon are third.

Finally in Group E Monaco beat CSKA Moscow 3-0 at home, while Spurs again failed to ignite Wembley and went down 1-0 to Leverkusen.

Monaco go top of the group while Leverkusen are second, but there is still everything to play for in this group.
