There were seven goals in the first half of Borussia Dortmund v Legia Warsaw, and everyone lost their chill

A full-time scoreline that reads 5-2 might be considered one of the games of the season – but what if those seven goals came in the first 32 minutes?

Well that’s exactly what happened at the Westfalenstadion, where German side Borussia Dortmund recovered from 1-0 down against Legia Warsaw after 10 minutes to go 5-2 up just 22 minutes later.

It was quite the turnaround, although Dortmund’s Twitter account seemed to enjoy it.

Records were smashed, obviously.

You really couldn’t leave the game for very long before everything had changed.

It was a bit crazy. Try to remain calm, everybody.

And although it seemed like the score could be anything from 6-3 to 9-4 by the end of the half…

…we then endured 13 minutes without a goal.

Still, mustn’t grumble.

Not with statistics like those.
