Cristiano Ronaldo may be out of favour with Zinedine Zidane at the moment but the Real Madrid striker has a fan for life in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's son.

Ronaldo and Aubameyang were both on the scoresheet in Germany on Wednesday night as Borussia Dortmund played out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Real Madrid.

Last season's Champions League winners took the lead through Crisitiano Ronaldo's opener before Aubameyang levelled the game for Dortmund,

France defender Raphael Varane looked to have won the game for Zinedine Zidane's side before Andre Schurrle earned the home side a point with a stoppage time goal.

Aubameyang took to his Instagram account to thank the 31-year-old after presenting his son with the Real Madrid star's match shirt.

"Cristiano, you've made my son happy," Aubameyang wrote.

Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are both level on four points after two games in group F.

Thomas Tuchel's side will now meet Sporting Lisbon in back-to-back fixtures while Real Madrid welcome Legia Warsaw to the Bernabeu.

The Gabon striker was linked with a summer move to the Bernabeu but decided to stay at Westphalian stadium.

The 27-year-old, who scored 39 goals in all competitions last season, has previously admitted an ambition to play for Los Blancos.

"My childhood dream was to play for Real Madrid," he said in a recent interview with L'Equipe.

"I promised my grandfather, who was from Avila some 110 kilometers away from Madrid, that I would play there. I realise that it will not be easy, but is always in the back of my mind."
