Jurgen Klopp praises Borussia Dortmund's first-half performance against Real Madrid and admits that a point at the Bernabeu is a result he is happy to take.

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has declared himself proud of the German champions after they came agonisingly close to beating Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Klopp's side held a 2-1 lead going into the final stages against Madrid but were forced to settle for a draw thanks to a last-gasp equaliser from Mesut Ozil.

The Dortmund coach insisted that a point was a brilliant result against the Spanish champions.

He told UEFA.com: "Both teams played at a very high pace and in the first half we had a superb performance.

"It's always a challenge to adjust and prepare against a team like Real. The equaliser was a shame, but you rarely expect a victory when you play over here."

Dortmund are top of Group D with eight points from four games and can qualify for the knockout stages with victory against Ajax in their next Champions League match.
