An 8-4 scoreline in the Champions League match between Borussia Dortmund and Legia Warsaw was a massive pre-match 1000/1.
Last night Dortmund and Legia Warsaw played out a 12-goal thriller that set a new record in the Champions League. The 8-4 scoreline surpassed Monaco's victory over Deportivo La Coruna in 2003 that finished 8-3.
Dortmund were the heavy pre-match favourites and as such goals were expected, with over 3.5 total goals the favourite at 7/10. No one expected the goal fest that fans at the Westfalenstadion were able to enjoy though, with the final scoreline of 8-4 1000/1 before the match begun.
It all started so well for Legia Warsaw when they scored the opening goal that was to spark seven first half goals in just 22 minutes. At the end of that spell of goals, Dortmund found themselves 5-2 up going into half time and the match, as a spectacle, appeared to be over. That didn't stop the goal glut though, with five more goals in the second half, with three in the last ten minutes and a last minute own-goal from Jakub Rzezniczak.
As well as breaking the record for the highest scoring Champions League match in history, it was also the first time there have ever been eight different scorers in a single match. Legia Warsaw also picked up an unwanted record by becoming the first team to score four goals in a Champions League match and not end it victorious.
