The German side made it 21 goals across their six matches during their 2-2 draw with Real Madrid on Wednesday.

This meant they beat the previous best of 20 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.
