Copenhagen break UCL duck in draw with Dortmund

FC Copenhagen scored their first goal in this season's Champions League campaign as they drew 1-1 with already qualified Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday in their last Group G game.

The Danes had been condemned to last place from the previous matchday and, although the match lacked significance, the hosts got off to a strong start.

Dortmund keeper Gregor Kobel was forced into a superb save in the 10th minute to deny teenager Roony Bardghji.

Despite resting several players, Dortmund struck first through Thorgan Hazard's well-taken effort at the far post against the run of play in the 23rd minute.

Copenhagen put the Germans firmly on the back foot in the first half and had 12 shots on goal before they were rewarded with Hakon Haraldsson's 41st-minute equaliser.
