Real Madrid beat Dortmund to win Champions League a record 15 times

Real Madrid Saturday night defeated  Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the final of the UEFA Champions League at Wembley Stadium, London.

Dortmund’s Karim Adeyemi missed two first-half chances and striker Niclas Fullkrug hit the post, with recalled Real keeper Thibaut Courtois also providing a formidable barrier.

Real, inevitably, raised the stakes, with Dani Carvajal glancing home a header from a corner 16 minutes from time before Vinicius Jr raced clear on to Jude Bellingham’s pass to add a second nine minutes later.

It crowned a glorious first season at Real for England’s Bellingham, but it was a night of disappointment for compatriot Jadon Sancho, who is on loan to Dortmund from Manchester United.
With this victory, Madrid sealed a record extending 15th title having last month been crowned LaLiga champions for a 33rd time.

Dortmund, who beat Paris Saint-Germain in the semi-final, have only lifted the trophy once, in 1997, and finished fifth in the German Bundesliga this season.

In his congratulatory message after the encounter, Dortmund manager Terzic said” It’s very tough to find the right words to describe the finals

“Performance wise we played a great game but we found out why they are champions for the 15th time.

“We were here to win and I think it was very close and there were just small things missing. But congratulations to them.

“This is a proud moment. We brought 100,000 fans to London. They thought we could win it but it’s also a little empty because we could not make it.

“This is now the challenge. We need to keep the belief. In the world of sport there is always a winner and a loser so no need to have any doubts and just to keep belief.”
