Real Madrid Secure Unprecedented 15th Champions League Title at Wembley

Real Madrid have secured their unparalleled 15th Champions League title, defeating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at Wembley Stadium. Despite Dortmund's dominant play for much of the match, they were unable to break through Real Madrid's organized defense.

Under the leadership of Edin Terzic, Dortmund appeared the more likely to score, registering 11 shots, testing Thibaut Courtois four times, and hitting the post early through Niclas Füllkrug. With an expected goals (xG) of 1.86 compared to Real Madrid's 1.15, the German side were left frustrated as they failed to convert their chances.

Real Madrid managed to weather the storm in the first hour and seized their opportunity with 16 minutes remaining. Toni Kroos delivered a perfect corner, allowing Dani Carvajal to head home and give Los Blancos the lead. Nine minutes later, Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior capitalized on a mistake by Ian Maatsen, doubling Real Madrid's advantage.

Dortmund thought they had pulled one back when Füllkrug headed in with 120 seconds left in regulation time, but the goal was disallowed for offside, extinguishing their hopes of a comeback. 

This victory marks Toni Kroos' sixth Champions League title, equaling the record of Paco Gento, while Carlo Ancelotti celebrated his fifth title as a coach.
