Fans who attended Borussia Dortmund’s 8-4 win against Legia Warsaw certainly got their money’s worth.

The attacking was as good as the defending was bad, and we loved every second of it.

The teams set a record by scoring seven goals in the first half - Dortmund led 5-2 - and they didn’t dry up in the second half.

Those seven goals came in just 22 minutes. It was entertainment at its finest.

Aleksander Prijovic gave Legia the lead in the 10th minute but Dortmund hit back with three goals in three minutes, Shinji Kagawa scoring twice and Nuri Sahin adding another.

Goals galore

Prijovic reduced the deficit before Ousmane Dembele and Marco Reus, making his return from a lengthy injury, made it 5-2.

Reus grabbed his second seven minutes after the restart but Legia refused to go away, Michal Kucharczyk scoring Legia’s third goal.

Teenager Felix Passlack made it 7-3 with nine minutes to go and it was 7-4 when Nemanja Nikolics got on the scoresheet.

Reus got his hat-trick, and concluded the scoring, in the second minute of stoppage time.

Check out every goal from this evening’s thriller at Signal Iduna Park.

Twitter reacts

BVB's Twitter account deserves a round of applause

A congratulations is in order to the person running Dortmund’s official Twitter account, who did extraordinary well to remain calm. Nobody would have blamed them for logging off, packing up and saying to hell with it all.

Check out some of the tweets below.

Winner-takes-all

For the second time in this season, a late goal from Real Madrid secured a 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon. Had the Portuguese side not conceded in the 87th minute, Borussia would have sealed top spot in Group F.

As it stands, the Germans hold a two point lead over Los Blancos heading into the winner-takes-all matchup at the Bernabeu in December.

Thomas Tuchel’s team can certainly be considered dark horses in the Champions League. Few teams in Europe have as many quality attacking options as Dortmund, who showed they can beat the best by beating Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Although Tuchel might want to focus on defending in training this week.
