Borussia Dortmund and Legia Warsaw combine to smash UCL goals records
Borussia Dortmund and Legia Warsaw made Champions League history on Tuesday - with the 12 goals they shared the highest in a single match, reports BBC.
Thomas Tuchel's side beat their Polish opponents 8-4 on a truly memorable evening in Germany.
It surpassed the 11 scored when Monaco beat Deportivo La Coruna 8-3 in 2003.
There were seven goals in 22 first-half minutes - and Legia ended up as the first side to score four goals in a Champions League match and still lose.
Dortmund's Marco Reus celebrated his return after six months out by not only captaining the side but also by scoring a hat-trick.
"I was just happy to be there from the start," said Reus, who missed the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016 because of injury.
"It is how you imagine your perfect comeback. I waited a long time for this and so it is even sweeter. The ball will be signed by everyone and will go on the shelf."
