Borussia Dortmund break record for goals in Champions League group stage


Borussia Dortmund have broken the record for goals scored in the group stage of a single campaign in the Champions League.

Thomas Tuchel's side made it 21 across their six matches during their 2-2 draw with Real Madrid on Wednesday, beating the previous best set by Real Madrid in 2013-14, Barcelona in 2011-12 and 2016/17 and Manchester United in 1998-99.

Marco Reus scored the crucial goal with only two minutes of normal time to play, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang having earlier got on the scoresheet as Dortmund came from two goals down to force a draw.
