Cristiano Ronaldo was a winner on his return to former club Sporting on Tuesday, as Real collected three points in Portugal.
Raphael Varane opened the scoring after 29 minutes for the reigning champions of Europe, but it appeared the hosts had stolen a point after an Adrien Silva penalty with 10 minutes to play.
However, Real remained dangerous and Karim Benzema wrapped up the victory with only three minutes of normal time remaining.
Dortmund will join Real in the next round after already previously qualifying from Group F, and they slammed Warsaw 8-4 at the Westfalenstadion.
Shinji Kagawa and Marco Reus both bagged a brace each, and efforts from Nuri Şahin, Ousmane Dembele, Felix Passlack and a deflected own goal by Jakub Rzezniczak in injury time wrapped up the hammering for the Poles.
Juve were in convincing form as they qualified, winning 3-1 against Sevilla in Spain.
