Varane then made amends down the other end in the 68th minute, firing home from close range after Karim Benzema had seen his effort following Ronaldo’s delivery cannon back off the woodwork.

But Schurrle had the final say for Dortmund in the 87th minute, smashing into the roof of the net following a ball into the box from Christian Pulisic.
