Borussia Dortmund are currently leading the group with 9 points won and a record of 3 wins and 1 defeat. Their only loss in the group so far came against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano in the previous round. But they are still topping the group, having the same amount of points as Atletico, because of a better goal difference.
