Borussia Dortmund suffered their first defeat in the third group game of the Champions League.

And it was a definite one.

At Ajax Amsterdam, Marco Rose's team lost 0: 4 (0: 2).

Marco Reus (11th minute, own goal), Daley Blind (25th), Antony (57th) and Sébastien Haller (72nd) scored in favor of the Dutch, who with nine points have the best chance of advancing.

Dortmund are second with six points.

No sooner had the smoke of Bengal fires pulled from the two fan camps than the Ajax supporters were allowed to cheer. But a Dortmund player scored the goal. Captain Reus falsified a free kick by Dušan Tadić with his head into his own goal (11th). BVB came under pressure against the extremely strong home team, Blind's goal in the 25th minute was the only scoring opportunity used by many. Erling Haaland only gave Dortmund their first opportunity in stoppage time in the first half.

Shortly after the break, Mats Hummels outplayed the Ajax defense and Haaland's volley shot Remko Pasveer over the crossbar.

Was the next hit getting closer now?

No, the game found its winner.

Antony slipped into the far corner after Haller's header was extended (57th), and BVB gave up.

Hummels and Emre Can overlooked Haller.

The ex-Frankfurt headed against Gregor Kobel's direction (72nd).

In the parallel game of the group, Sporting Lisbon won 4-1 (3-1) at Besiktas Istanbul.

RB Leipzig is still waiting for the first point win in the Champions League, the Bundesliga side lost 2: 3 (1: 1) at Paris Saint-Germain, which leads Group A with seven points, ahead of Manchester City (6) and Club Bruges (4 ).

RB Leipzig threatens the premature group.

Early on, the French champions seemed to live up to their favorite role without the ailing Neymar, but with Lionel Messi, Julian Draxler and Mbappé on the offensive.

The latter benefited from his speed on a counterattack, hurried away - and hit the left corner against the direction of Péter Gulácsi (10th).

The Leipziger, who knew how to please with a courageous start before conceding, got the well-deserved equalization: left-back Angeliño had plenty of room for a sharp flat pass to the second post to taker Silva (28th).

Messi with a double pack

Angeliño again played a large part in the fact that the strong Leipzig team turned the game in the meantime.

Nordi Mukiele headed his buttery flank into the left corner (57th).

Then one could feel sorry for the German runner-up.

A mistake by Adams in midfield was punished, Mbappé picked up the pace, Messi's finish bounced off the inside post before the Argentine pushed him over the line himself (67th).

After a foul on Mbappé, Messi took the penalty kick: He took just a few short steps and then chipped the ball into the middle of the goal (74th).

Gulácsi had jumped to the right.

Nothing changed at the end of the game, Mbappé's missed penalty in stoppage time had no consequences.
