I Feel Screwed As We Played A Great Game - Zinedine Zidane (Highlights)

Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane has expressed his unhappiness after his team conceded a late equaliser in Tuesday's Champions League away to Borussia Dortmund, making it the team's the third successive draw.

Cristiano Ronaldo had put Madrid in front, but Pierre-Emerick Aubemyang put the game back on level terms.

Raphael Varane made it 2-1 midway through the second half, before Dortmund substitute, Christian Pulisic, made a cross that gave Andre Schurrle the chance to equalise with just three minutes remaining.

I feel screwed as we played a great game, made huge effort everyone in attack and defence, Zidane said. 

We played the game we hoped to. But in the end, the same again, it is the third game in a row.

I feel bad for the players, they do not deserve this. It is not a bad result, but being 2-1 up with three minutes left. You feel screwed.

Zidane said his players had not repeated the same mistakes in concentration which had allowed Las Palmas to equalise last weekend, saying that all teams who come to play at Dortmund knew they would "suffer" at times.

Against Las Palmas we lacked concentration at the end, he said. 

Today that did not happen. From minute one to 90 we did our jobs.

In the first half we suffered with their counters, but that is normal here, in this stadium. Then to be 2-1 ahead, with three minutes left, it is difficult. But we will keep going and we will change this.
