England international Jadon Sancho scored his first Champions League goal as Borussia Dortmund recorded an impressive win over Atletico Madrid.
The teenager scored Dortmund’s third with a simple tap-in after goals from Axel Witsel and Raphael Guerreiro.
Guerreiro then made it 4-0 after capitalising on a poor back pass from Felipe Luis to finish past Jan Oblak.
The result was manager Diego Simeone’s biggest defeat in his seven years in charge of Atletico.
Witsel opened the scoring with a deflected shot in the first half but it was 73 minutes before Guerreiro made it two, finishing off a brilliant team move.
Former Manchester City winger Sancho came off the bench just after Dortmund’s second and got his name on the score sheet four minutes later when Mario Gotze played Achraf Hakimi through and he squared the ball for an easy finish.
The 18-year-old, who made his England debut this month as a substitute in a 0-0 draw against Croatia, became the second-youngest English player to score in the Champions League, after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Arsenal against Olympiakos in 2011.
He is also the first English player to score for a non-British club in the Champions League since David Beckham for Real Madrid against Rosenborg in November 2005.
Atletico Madrid hit the post twice, either side of half-time, through Saul Niguez and Angel Correa but the German side were ultimately too much for them.
The result means Dortmund top Group A with nine points. Atletico remain in second, having won their first two games.

The goalkeeper can’t stop replaying that losing moment in the semi-final against Algeria, wishing it would’ve turned out differently somehow
Daniel Akpeyi defended his teammates from criticism following Nigeria’s 2-1 defeat to Algeria in Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) semi-final.
The Super Eagles looked to be in with a great chance of beating Djamel Belmadi’s men to reach the competition’s final after dismissing South Africa in the quarter-final.
However, a Riyad Mahrez last-minute free-kick sent Gernot Rohr’s men crashing after Odion Ighalo had erased Willam Troost-Ekong’s own goal.
Rohr’s team faced the wrath of fans for offering precious little in Cairo, but Akpeyi believes otherwise.
