Borussia Dortmund 8 Legia Warsaw 4 – How it happened

SoccerNews in UEFA Champions League 22 Nov 2016


Marco Reus’s 92nd-minute strike completed a stunning 8-4 victory for Borussia Dortmund over Group F rivals Legia Warsaw, setting a new Champions League record in the process.

Reus, making his first start of the season, marked a memorable comeback from injury with a hat-trick – his stoppage-time effort representing the 12th goal of the contest – overcoming the Champions League record of 11, which was set by Monaco’s 8-3 demolition of Deportivo La Coruna in 2003.

Here is how events unfolded at Signal Iduna Park, in a game that is likely to live long in the memory: 

10 – LEGIA LEAD 1-0. Aleksandar Prijovic puts Legia ahead with a sublime finish off the outside of his boot.

17 – DORTMUND EQUALISE, 1-1. Shinji Kagawa restores parity with a close-range header from Ousmane Dembele’s cross. 

18 – DORTMUND LEAD 2-1. Kagawa doubles his tally with a venomous strike from the edge of the area. 

20 – DORTMUND LEAD 3-1. Nuri Sahin heads home after a calamitous error from Legia goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak.

24 – LEGIA PULL ONE BACK, 3-2. Prijovic sweeps home his second of the match after shambolic defending from the hosts.

29 – DORTMUND LEAD 4-2. Prijovic rattles the woodwork from point-blank range, with Dembele adding Dortmund’s fourth from the resulting counter-attack.

32 – DORTMUND LEAD 5-2. Reus gets in on the act, tucking home after connecting with Kagawa’s delivery.


52 – DORTMUND LEAD 6-2. Reus has his second when he prods home Dembele’s cross.

57 – LEAGIE SCORE, 6-3. Legia pull one back once more – Michal Kucharczyk dinking a finish over Roman Weidenfeller.

81 – DORTMUND LEAD 7-3. Andre Schurrle’s effort hits the crossbar, but Felix Passlack is on hand to nod in Dortmund’s seventh.

83 – LEGIA SCORE, 7-4. Substitute Nemanja Nikolic snatches the visitors’ fourth, levelling the previous Champions League record of 11 goals in one match.

92 – DORTMUND LEAD 8-4. Reus caps off his return with a third goal, sliding a finish through the legs of Cierzniak from an acute angle.

Full-time, and a new record, as Monaco acknowledged!
