Real Madrid clashes with Dortmund in the Champions League finals

The scheduled match between Spanish giant Real Madrid and the pride of Germany Borussia Dortmund is set to take off tomorrow, Saturday June 1, 2024 at Wembley stadium, London. Los Blancos are the favourites as they are the leading team with most trophies in the competition.

Real Madrid is the most successful team in the history of the European Champions League, having won the tournament 14 times in 17 appearances in the final. If they beat Dortmund on Saturday, they’ll add to their massive title haul.

Real Madrid

Ancelotti’s men astonishingly found a way to prevail against defending champions Manchester City – exacting revenge on their 2022-23 semi-final conquerors. The white angels went ahead into the semi’s and defeated German big boys Bayern Munich.

The first leg ended in a draw. Madrid were a goal down in the second leg and with 10 minutes to go they made a dramatic comeback to win 2-1, with brace from skipper Joselu.



Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund, known in their homeland as “die Schwarzgelben”, with regards to their traditional colours of black and yellow, are seeking their second European trophy since winning the trophy 27 years ago. Dortmund met Atletico Madrid in the round of 8. After losing to them in the first leg away from home, they returned home and made a comeback with goals from Julian Brandt, Ian Maatsen and Marcel Sabitzer saw them through to the semi’s.

Dortmund later met Paris Saint German where they won the first leg with just a goal, scored by Niclas Fullkrug in the 36th minute. They followed their first leg win with another one goal win scored by Mat Hummels, which saw them through to the finals.


Having losing the trophy to rivals Bayern Munich in 2013, they don’t want history to repeat itself. On Saturday, we expect no different. Last year’s final between Man City and Inter Milan was settled by a solitary goal, and lightning could strike twice in London, as Real Madrid reclaim their status as Europe’s top dogs.
