    2-2 with defending champion Real Madrid on Wednesday to win Group F and set a
    scoring record of 21 goals in the group stage of the Champions League.Karim
    Benzema netted in each half at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium to give Madrid a
    2-0 lead, but forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled the German side closer in
    the 61st and Reus struck the equalizer in the 88th.In the end it was a happy
    outcome for us, Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel said. It was very important to
    stand up to Real Madrid twice. We played full of courage.Dortmund had already
    drawn 2-2 with Madrid when they met in Germany.Madrid was left with the
    consolation prize of matching the clubs 34-game unbeaten streak that had stood
    since the late 1980s.We had a lot of opportunities to put the game away and we
    didnt, Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. We played a good match but couldnt get
    the win, now we have to move on. In the end it was well-deserved for them
    (Dortmund) for what they have done so far.Dortmund finished the group with 14
    points, two more than Madrid. Legia Warsaw, which defeated Sporting Lisbon 1-0
    in Poland, finished third with four points to qualify for the Europa League.To
    win the Champions it doesnt matter if you are first or second in the group,
    Benzema said. You have to beat all the teams.Cristiano Ronaldo was held
    scoreless for the fourth straight time in the Champions League, again missing
    the chance to become the first player to score 100 goals in European
    competitions. His total remains at 98.Benzema opened the scoring from close
    range in the 28th, completing a low cross by Dani Carvajal from the right flank.
    The Frenchman added to the lead in the 53rd with a firm header after a
    well-placed cross by James Rodriguez.Aubameyang scored from inside the area and
    then set up Reus equalizer after a quick counterattack.Aubameyangs goal helped
    Dortmund match the previous record of 20 group-stage goals, a mark that had been
    achieved by three other clubs: Barcelona, this season and in 2011-12, Madrid in
    2013-14 and Manchester United in 1998-99.Dortmunds campaign this season included
    6-0 and 8-4 routs against Legia.The draw allowed Zidanes team to match Madrids
    unbeaten run set under coach Leo Beenhakker in the 1988-89. Madrid hasnt been
    defeated since April at Wolfsburg in the quarterfinals of last seasons Champions
    League.Its important to continue to make history and continue our good run,
    Zidane said.Ronaldos best chance on Wednesday was a close-range shot that struck
    the far post in the 78th minute. He had also come close 10 minutes earlier with
    a right-foot strike that forced a difficult cross-handed save by Dortmund
    goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller.He remains the competitions all-time leading
    scorer with 95 goals, two more than Lionel Messi, who netted his 93rd in
    Barcelonas 4-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach on Tuesday. It was Messis 10th
    goal in the group stage, one short of Ronaldos record of 11 achieved last
    year.Ronaldo only scored two goals in this seasons group stage, his worst mark
