Champions League roundup: Dortmund get late winner over Zenit as Chelsea settle for draw against Krasnodar 

  • Dortmund seal late victory at Zenit St Petersburg with Axel Witsel scoring the winner against his former club to clinch top spot in group
  • Chelsea were forced to settle for a point against Krasnodar in their final Champions League group stage clash 
  • Lazio draw 2-2 with Club Brugge as Italians throw away two-goal lead 

Dortmund secured a 2-1 win over Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League as Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw with  Krasnodar. 

Borussia Dortmund struck twice in the space of 11 second-half minutes to seal a 2-1 victory at Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League on Tuesday and clinch top spot in Group F.

The victory took Dortmund to 13 points from their six games, with Lazio taking second spot on 10 after a 2-2 draw with 10-man Club Brugge, who finished third.

With top spot in the group already in the bag, Chelsea went into this encounter with the pressure firmly off – a draw probably a fair result on the night.

With nothing to play for Frank Lampard rested a host of his key players ahead of Saturday’s trip to Everton while academy prospect Tino Anjorin was handed his full debut.

The Blues were level just four minutes later when Jorginho converted coolly from the penalty spot after a foul.

Elsewhere, Lazio sneaked into the Champions League knockout stage for the first time in over 20 years on Tuesday despite being held to a 2-2 draw at home to Club Bruges who played the entire second half with 10 men.
