Borussia Dortmund head coach Peter Bosz is not convinced that Real Madrid are favourites to win the Champions League despite his side's 3-2 loss at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Dortmund fought back from 2-0 down to level the match against the two-time defending champions thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's quick-fire brace in Madrid on Wednesday. However, German visitors – who were already out of contention– succumbed to a Lucas Vazquez strike with nine minutes remaining.

"After today's game, I don't know if it is possible to say that Real Madrid are the favourite to win the Champions League," Bosz said during his news conference. He added "They were not very strong tonight. "Although, it is true that they rested many players and they are one of the favourites."

Dortmund will turn their attention to the Europa League after finishing third in the group, 11 points behind second-placed Madrid and 14 adrift of table-toppers Tottenham.
