That was fun. BVB beat Warsaw in the Champions league 8-4 on Tuesday in a barn burner of a game. The BVB goal scorers were Shinji Kagawa (17’ 18’), Ousmane Dembele (29’), Marco Reus ( 32’, 52’, 90’) Felix Passlack (81’). The Warsaw goal scorers were Prijovc (10’, 24’), Kucharczsyk ( 57’) and Nikolics (83’).

Now as fun as this game was, we still gave up 4 goals to a very bad team. While tat is pretty bad there were a lot of factors that played into it. First Bartra wasn’t supposed to play after Tuchel tried to pull him from the lineup last minute. UEFA wouldn’t let him and Bartra probably had to prepare on short time. Our back line was very makeshift with Sebastian Rode playing as a right back for some reason. No matter Tuchel is still probably going to make the team do defensive drills all week to get their basics back together.

The Bee’s goals came from just absolute defensive collapse from Warsaw. Shinji’s two goals in 78 seconds were absurd. They were also his first goals in the Champions League in 4 years. Yay!. Nuri Sahin is showing sign of a comeback with a nice goal a minute after Shinji scored his second. Ousmane Dembele was on fire the whole game and got his goal in the 29th minute. Marco Reus capped the half for us with a goal. The next half started the same with a Reus goal then a Passlack goal then another Reus goal.

Overall this game was just so nuts its hard to describe. There were tons of goals by both teams as they refused to play any defense. It definitely was an odd one and will now go down as the highest scoring Champion League game ever.
