“Carvajal and Vinicius Goals Secure Real Madrid’s 15th European Crown”

Dortmund appeared the stronger side for much of the match, creating numerous opportunities. Karim Adeyemi missed a crucial one-on-one chance against Thibaut Courtois in the 21st minute, and Niklas Fullkrug hit the post soon after. Despite their dominance, they couldn’t capitalize on their chances.

The breakthrough for Madrid came in the 74th minute when Dani Carvajal expertly headed in a corner from Toni Kroos. As Dortmund pushed for an equalizer, their hopes were dashed by a defensive error. Ian Maatsen’s misplaced pass was intercepted by Jude Bellingham, who set up Vinicius Junior to score Madrid’s second in the 83rd minute, securing the win.

This victory marks Madrid’s sixth Champions League title in 11 years and highlights their resilience and strategic acumen under Carlo Ancelotti. The team maintained an unbeaten record throughout the competition, a feat only previously achieved by Barcelona in the 2005-06 season.

As the season concludes, Toni Kroos and Nacho are set to retire, ending their careers as the most decorated players in the competition’s history, alongside teammates Carvajal and Luka Modric. This win solidifies Real Madrid’s position as the dominant force in European football.
