Germany’s Borussia Dortmund cruised into the quarter final of UEFA Champions League on Wednesday after securing a 4-nil victory over Portugal’s Benfica, in their 2nd leg round of 16 tie at the Signal-Iduna-Park.

Dortmund, who lost the first leg 1-0 to the Portuguese side, managed to go ahead after just 4 minutes on Wednesday, when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang headed the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-0.

The German side increased the pressure after the halftime, and got their 2nd of the match through Christian Pulisic who lifted a clever chip over the on-rushing keeper.

Minutes later, Aubameyang tapped home from close range, after a superb volleyed cross from Marcel Schmelzer. And Aubameyang added Borussia’s 4th late in the match to complete his hat-trick as the German side secured a 4-1 aggregate victory, and advance into the quarter final of the competition for the third time in 10 years.
