Shakhtar Donetsk hit seven on incredible Champions League night

Shakhtar Donetsk celebrate
Shakhtar Donetsk ran in six goals by half-time against Bate Borisov

Shakhtar Donetsk recorded the joint-biggest away win in Champions League history as they trounced Bate Borisov on a night when a record 40 goals were scored.

It is the most goals scored on a night with just eight matches, though 44 were plundered on one matchday in 1997 when 12 games were played.

Shakhtar equalled Marseille's win at MSK Zilina in 2010 as striker Luiz Adriano scored five, levelling Lionel Messi's record for goals in a single Champions League match.

Bayern Munich hammered Roma 7-1 at the Stadio Olimpico, scoring five goals inside 36 minutes.

But such was the nature of an incredible night of football, Shakhtar went one better by the interval to set a new record for first-half goals away from home in the Champions League.

At that stage, both sides had Liverpool's record win in the Champions League - 8-0 against Besiktas in 2007 - well within their sights.

Neither could manage the feat, but Adriano's 82nd-minute penalty - his second spot-kick of the night - ensured he moved on par with Messi's haul for an individual, set in Barcelona's 7-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen in 2012.

His brilliant display also means 65% of Shakhtar's goals in Champions League football have come from Brazilians.

They moved second in Group H on five points, two behind leaders Porto who beat visitors Athletic Bilbao 2-1.
