Daniel Carvajal Ramos on 74‎’‎ minute and Vinícius José Paixão de Oliveira Júnior on 83‎’ minute changed the UEFA Champions League final game between Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid.

Real Madrid beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the final of the UEFA Champions League at Wembley Stadium, London 2024.

Dani Carvajal headed the Spaniards into a 74th minute lead before Vinicius Junior settled matters nine minutes later.

Madrid seal a record extending 15th title having last month been crowned LaLiga champions for a 33rd time.

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

Zinedine Zidane, who won this trophy as a player for Real Madrid in 2002, and as their manager in 2016, 2017 and 2018, arrives with the trophy and pops it on the plinth. Then he gives Carlo Ancelotti the warmest of hugs. Real form a guard of honour and applaud the officials, then their vanquished opponents. What chance would you have given Borussia Dortmund of doing all this when they were drawn in a group with PSG, Milan and Newcastle? Not much of one. But they so nearly won the final. They leave Wembley disappointed, again, but when it all comes down will surely feel huge pride at making the final. Their silver medals well earned, even if a few immediately take them off. An excellent, if ultimately flawed and ill-fated, display from the underdogs.

What is the record between Real Madrid and Dortmund?
Head-to-head: Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid
This is the 15th meeting of the clubs. Dortmund have won three encounters to Madrid’s six. The last time they met was 2017-18 with Madrid winning both matches in their group stage encounter.
Speaking of records … until tonight, Paco Gento was the only player to have won the European Cup on six occasions, doing so for Real Madrid in 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960 and 1966. He’s now been joined on that mark by fellow Madridistas in Toni Kroos, Dani Carvajal, Nacho and Luka Modric. Kroos is the only one of them to have won one of their titles with another club, having done so with Bayern Munich in 2013.
