Borussia Dortmund knocked out of Champions League at group stage

    Borussia Dortmund have been eliminated at the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2017.

    BVB were beaten 3-1 away at Sporting CP on Wednesday night. A first half brace from Pedro Goncalves and a late third from Pedro Porro sent the hosts into an unassailable lead, with Donyell Malen replying with a consolation in stoppage time.

    Marco Rose’s side are now three points behind the Portuguese champions with just one group game remaining. Due to an inferior head-to-head record, Dortmund cannot leapfrog Sporting and will head into the Europa League post-Christmas.

    Star striker Erling Haaland has missed recent weeks with a hip problem, with father Alf-Inge revealing that he may not be fit again until the start of 2022.

    Dortmund have flattered to deceive in his absence, with summer signing Malen only recently coming into form, and that was not enough to save their Champions League dreams.
