Champions League Matchday 5 Tuesday Games Roundup

Champions League Matchday 5 Tuesday games, Dortmund and Legia Warsaw blitzed the record for goals scored in a Champions League game as der BVB secured an emphatic 8-4 win over the polish outfit courtesy of a hat-trick from Marco Reus, a brace from Shinji Kagawa and further goals from Nuri Sahin, Ousmane Dembele and Felix Passalack.

The game was a remarkable one to say the least as it offered a piece of action and intrigue in basically every minute.

Aleksandar Prijovic bagged a brace for the visitors, while Michal Kucharczyk and Nemanja Nikolic also struck home to take Legia's tally up to four goals.

Despite the emphatic result, Dortmund was unable to move into top spot in Group F following Real Madrid's 2-1 victory over Sporting Lisbon.

Raphael Varane gave Madrid the lead in the first-half, although Zidane's men found it difficult to double their advantage and had to wait until the 87th-minute to score a second goal through Karim Benzema.

Adrien Silva converted a penalty which at some point drew the scores level, but Karim Benzema's late strike saw Madrid retain top spot in Group F.

Elsewhere, Leicester put their league woes behind them as they secured qualification into the knockout stages of the Champions League following a 2-1 win over Club Brugge.

Okazaki and Mahrez were on target for the Foxes, as Ranieri's emerged as winners of Group G following Porto and Copenhagen's goalless draw.

Tottenham might be back playing Thursday night football following their elimination from the Champions League.

Pochettino's side succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Monaco last night. Sidibe opened the scoring for Monaco before Harry Kane drew Spurs level with a Penalty.

Thomas Lemar then delivered the final blow to Spurs' Champions League campaign as Monaco ran out 2-1 winners from the State Louis II.

Bayer Leverkusen had to settle for a 1-1 draw against CSKA Moscow. Kevin Volland gave Leverkusen the lead in the first-half, before Bebras Natcho converted a penalty in the closing stages of the game to earn a point for his side.

Juventus secured a 3-1 win away at Sevilla thanks to late goals from Leonardo Bonucci and Mario Mandzukic.

Nicolas Pareja gave Sevilla the lead before goals from Claudio Marchisio, Leonardo Bonucci and Mario Mandzukic saw Juventus claim the three points which sends them through to the next round of the Champions League.

Lyon also picked up a win over Dinamo Zagreb last night courtesy of a 72nd-minute strike from Alexandre Lacazette. The French outfit secured a 1-0 win over Dinamo, but they're currently three points adrift of Sevilla who currently sits second in Group H.
