It took just eight minutes for the Polish striker to open the scoring, sweeping home Mario Götze's inviting cross from the left.

Madrid drew level before half-time when Cristiano Ronaldo rolled in following a Mats Hummels howler of a backpass.

Dortmund restored their lead five minutes after the break as a mishit shot from Marco Reus ended at the feet of Lewandowski, who poked home his shot from inside the six yard box despite claims for offside from the Madrid defense.

Lewandowski completed his hat-trick five minutes later with the pick of the bunch, showing a brilliant touch to control, turn and shot into the roof of the net.

Madrid's misery was complete in the 66th minute when Lewandowski netted a fourth on the night from the penalty spot, becoming the first player ever to put four goals past Los Blancos in a single Champions League game.

"It was just an outstanding night. Four goals is just crazy - it's difficult for me to say something about it," Lewandowski said after the match.
