Real Madrid have once again affirmed their status as European club football giants after defeating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the 2024 UEFA Champions League finals.

Los Blancos had to ride their luck in the first period, with BVB comfortably the better side, but the Bundesliga outfit were ultimately made to pay for their missed opportunities.

With Aurelien Tchouameni out of the final through injury, Eduardo Camavinga came into the Real Madrid midfield, and the Spanish giants were otherwise as expected, with Nacho given the nod in the middle of the defence alongside Antonio Rudiger, while Thibaut Courtois started in goal.

Dortmund had Jadon Sancho, Julian Brandt and Karim Adeyemi in support of centre-forward Niclas Fullkrug, with Marco Reus on the bench in his final game for the club.

Federico Valverde fired over the BVB crossbar in the 12th minute, but it was Dortmund that dominated in the period that followed, with the Bundesliga giants causing all sorts of problems with their pace.

Julian Brandt placed one just past the post in the 14th minute, before Adeyemi managed to round Courtois seven minutes later, but he took it just too wide, and Carvajal was across to make the challenge.

Fullkrug was next to come close, hitting one off the base of the post, before Courtois was forced into a smart save to deny Adeyemi, with the attacker’s running power causing so many issues.

Dani Carvajal sent Carlo Ancelotti’s side ahead in the 74th minute, before Vinicius Junior doubled their advantage in the 83rd minute, and Dortmund were unable to respond, with Real Madrid once again cementing their spot as the best side in European football. It is a La Liga and Champions League double for Los Blancos this term.

The finals played at the famed Wembley Stadium, in London saw the La Liga giants solidifying their hold on the Champions League trophy which they have now won for a record 15 times which is the sixth time in 11 years.

Legendary coach, Carlo Ancelotti also won his fifth Champions League title. It’s his third with Real Madrid, with the other two with AC Milan.
