Real Madrid Clinch Record 15th UEFA Champions League European Cup with Hard-Fought 0-2 Win Over Borussia Dortmund

Real Madrid cemented their status as European royalty by defeating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the UEFA Champions League final, securing a record-extending 15th title.

Dortmund's Early Threat:

The game began with a strong showing from Dortmund. Julian Brandt missed an early chance, followed by a golden opportunity for Karim Adeyemi brilliantly saved by Thibaut Courtois. Dortmund continued to press with Niclas Füllkrug hitting the post and forcing another save from Courtois.

Kroos' Farewell Appearance, Second Half Breakthrough:

This match marked the final club appearance for Real Madrid legend Toni Kroos. Despite a slow start by the Spanish champions, Kroos nearly provided a moment of magic with a free-kick saved by Gregor Kobel. Dani Carvajal also had a chance saved by Kobel.

Carvajal's Header, Vinícius Seals the Deal:

The deadlock finally broke in the 74th minute when Kroos delivered a perfect corner for Carvajal to head home. Dortmund continued to fight, but Vinícius Júnior scored the second goal with a deflected effort, putting the game out of reach.

Real Madrid's Historic Victory:

Despite an unconvincing performance, Real Madrid emerged victorious, securing their 15th European Cup and achieving a historic fourth La Liga and Champions League double. This win also marks a record-tying sixth European Cup/UCL title for Toni Kroos, matching the legendary Paco Gento.
