Marco Reus scored a hat-trick in a remarkable 8-4 win for Borussia Dortmund over Legia Warsaw

Already-qualified Borussia Dortmund crushed Legia Warsaw 8-4 a record for the most goals in a Champions League match helped by a Marco Reus hat-trick.

Dortmund scored five times in 15 minutes with Shinji Kagawa grabbing two goals while Reus, back after six months out injured, completed the scoring in stoppage time. They had gone behind early on to an Aleksandar Prijovic goal but that sparked a remarkable rush of seven goals in 15 first-half minutes that gave the home side a 5-2 interval lead.

Dortmund are top of Group F on 13 points, two ahead of Real Madrid, who beat Sporting 2-1 away, before the two sides meet in Spain in December to decide who takes top spot in the section. Real had to rely on a later Karim Benzema goal to see off their opponents, after an Adrien Silva penalty 10 minutes from time had equalised Raphal Varanes first-half strike.

Juventus qualified for the knockout stage after Leonardo Bonucci and Mario Mandzukic scored late goals to give them a stormy 3-1 win at Sevilla, who played the second half with 10 men.

Nicols Pareja gave the hosts a ninth-minute lead but they had Franco Vzquez sent off in the 36th minute for two bookings and Claudio Marchisio equalised in first-half stoppage time with a controversial penalty awarded by the English referee Mark Clattenburg.

The Sevilla coach, Jorge Sampaoli, was also dismissed for persistent dissent and watched the final half-hour of the match among the home supporters.

Bonucci fired Juventus in front in the 85th minute and Mandzukic completed their win in stoppage time. Juventus moved top of Group H with 11 points from five games, one ahead of Sevilla.

In the other Group H fixture, Lyon edged past bottom-placed Dinamo Zagreb to keep their hopes of qualifying alive. Alexandre Lacazette scored a 72nd minute goal in the Croatian capital to give them a 1-0 victory and ensure a 2-0 home win over Sevilla on the final matchday would mean they reach the last 16.

Porto missed their chance to put pressure on Leicester City at the top of Group G after they were held to a goalless away draw by Copenhagen. They sit two points ahead of the Danish side in second place going into the final round of matches, meaning both can still go through.

In the days early game, Bayer Leverkusen were held to a 1-1 draw at CSKA Moscow but the Tottenhams defeat in Monaco means the Bundesliga side are guaranteed to go through in second place.

Kevin Volland gave them a 16th minute lead and later struck a post but Natcho equalised for the Russians 14 minutes from time. CSKA can qualify for the Europa League if they defeat Tottenham at Wembley in their final game. Guardian sport and agencies
