Dortmund, in turn, continues with one title and two defeats in decisions – both played at Wembley.

Triple invasion in the first minutes.

The match had barely started, but had to be stopped for an unusual reason: multiple field invasions.

Within 20 seconds, three fans entered the Wembley pitch, one even managed to take a selfie with Jude Bellingham.

The stadium’s own security was unable to find all three after the invasion, with one of them returning to his seat. It turns out that Real Madrid fans identified him and told the police.

First period of Aurinegro dominance.

Considered by many to be underdogs in the final, Borussia Dortmund dominated the first half of the match, creating a ton of great wasted chances.

In the 20th minute, Karim Adeyemi was thrown face to face with Courtois, tried to dribble past the goalkeeper, but lost the angle and was unable to finish.

Three minutes later, Niklas Füllkrug was free in the area , he managed to take it from the goalkeeper, but the ball capriciously hit the post.

Courtois’s first big save came at 27. Once again Adeyemi managed to invade the space on the left, kicked across, but the number 1 palmed it out.

At 40, Marcel Sabitzer took advantage of the space in the middle and shot powerfully , but Courtois once again made a great save in the corner.

Real enters the game and has an unlikely hero.

The return for the final stretch was a more connected Real. In the first escape, Vinicius Jr. was fouled at the tip of the pitch . From the kick, Toni Kroos finished in the corner, and Gregor Kobel made a save.

At 11, Vini Jr. crossed , Schlotterbeck deflected, and Daniel Carvajal kicked across. The ball deflected off Ian Maatsen, but Kobel made the save in two steps.

But Borussia Dortmund continued to be dangerous. At 17, Adeyemi lifted the ball into the ball , and Füllkrug, free, headed the goal, but Courtois made another save.

At 23, Bellingham almost opens the score. Vinicius launched the ball into the ball , the Englishman almost deflected it, but the ball ended up going straight out, taking paint off the post.

Until, at 28, in a corner taken by Kroos, Daniel Carvajal rose above the Aurinegro defenders and headed into the corner to take the score off.

Kobel tries to stop, but Vini Jr. is relentless.

Two later, the second almost comes out. Bellingham received the ball inside the area , shot across the ball, but a providential meander by Schlotterbeck took the ball out of the way of the goal.

Kobel also performed three miracles in the sequence. The first came from a free kick from Kroos. The second was a kick from Camavinga’s angle. The third was in the streetlights , with a header from Nacho Fernández.

But the second goal, the title-winning goal, had to come from the feet of the star of the campaign. At 37, Maatsen played incorrectly , Bellingham passed it to Vinicius Jr., who shot in the corner and found the net.

Füllkrug also took advantage of an interception by Donyell Malen to reduce the deficit, but the move was disallowed for offside.
