After Jose Mourinho watched his Real Madrid side draw 2-2 at home with Borussia Dortmund, the 49-year-old said if they qualify from the group in second place, it will not be a problem for them.
Rather, the Portuguese said the teams that finish in first place will be in an uncomfortable position.
Dortmund currently tops the group, after winning at home two weeks ago.
“If we qualify, if this is the most difficult group and we end up second, then, that’s a problem for the other teams that end up first in their groups,” Mourinho told reporters after the game. “The two times that I’ve won the Champions League my team ended the group stage in second place.
“There is no drama here. We played a great game versus Manchester City and today it’s been another great game.
“We made two big defensive mistakes, you can’t do that against a big team, they will kill you.
“Dortmund put us under a lot of pressure. In the first half we couldn’t perform, but the second half was quite different, I liked the second half.”
