Robert Lewandowski scored four goals and Borussia Dortmund took a huge step toward reaching the club's second Champions League final with a 4-1 walloping of Real Madrid on Wednesday. With victory in the first leg of the semifinal, Dortmund, the only unbeaten side remaining in the competition, made it six wins in six at home and extended Madrid's run of six consecutive defeats in Germany. Madrid archrival Barcelona was thumped by a German team the day before, losing 4-0 at Bayern Munich. Lewandowski opened the scoring in the eighth minute, only for Cristiano Ronaldo to equalize against the run of play two minutes before the interval. Lewandowski beat the offside trap in the 50th, and the Poland striker completed his hat trick in stunning fashion five minutes later. He finished the scoring with a penalty in the 67th, after Xabi Alonso took down Marco Reus.
