Aubameyang Gets Hat-Trick Helps As Dortmund Progress To Quarter-Final

Aubameyang's hat-trick was more than enough to put Borussia Dortmund into the Champions League quarter-finals as they beat Benfica 4-0 on Wednesday evening. He missed a penalty and numerous chances during a torrid first leg, but redeemed himself in the return fixture to help Dortmund beat their opponents 4-1 on aggregate.

Aubameyang opened the scoring in the fourth minute, with the game finely poised on a level aggregate score at half-time before Dortmund ran away with the game in the second half. Christian Pulisic added a second on 59 minutes, before Aubameyang added another almost instantly afterwards and rounded off his treble with 86 minutes on the clock.

Dortmund were fortunate to end the first-half will a full complement of players as Dembele committed two crunching fouls in the space of two minutes but was not booked for the second and given his marching orders in what was a lucky break from the home side.
