In the RTÉ commentary booth, Jim Beglin was inspired to claim that Dortmund can go on and win the Champions League, while George Hamilton declared a goal of the tournament contender, as Marco Reus swept the ball past Keylor Navas in the Real Madrid goal.
The inch-perfect counter attack goal was scored in the 88th minute, leaving little time for a response, which then saw Borussia Dortmund top the group ahead of Real Madrid.
As Marcelo charged forward, he was caught in possession and within seconds the Dortmund players were celebrating.
That should be taught as an example in the perfect counter attack. Beautiful stuff.
Damien Duff and Liam Brady weren't quite having Beglin's claim that they can go on and win the whole thing, but they came from 2-0 down in the Bernabeu tonight, so write them off at your peril.
They also set a new Champions League record with that late goal:

Pretty good going, to be fair.
