Dortmund’s chance to go to next round diminish
Dortmund’s lacklustre performance continued after the break and the noisy stadium erupted in joy when Mickael Pote ended APOEL’s barren run in front of goal — thanks to a mistake from goalkeeper Roman Burki.
Burki’s attempted pass out of the back went straight to Lorenzo Ebecilio, who eluded Marcel Schmelzer and fired a shot that Burki failed to gather. Pote was first to react to score from the rebound.
Greek defender Sokratis equalised five minutes later with a header from Mario Goetze’s cross.

Shinji Kagawa struck the crossbar two minutes later after reserve goalkeeper Gudino got a touch to his shot, and Dortmund knew it was out of luck when Gudino and the post denied Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in injury time.
With Madrid and Tottenham on seven points after their 1-1 draw in Madrid, Dortmund, with one point, face a tall order to emerge from the group.
