  • Borussia Dortmund lost their last Champions League final, which was played at Wembley in 2013.

  • Vinicius Jr scored the only goal in Real Madrid’s last Champions League final win, against Liverpool in 2022.

Los Blancos hoping for more Champions League history

This is Real Madrid’s competition.

Los Blancos are the most successful club in the European Cup/Champions League history and are just one game away from securing their 15th trophy. If they win at Wembley it will be their sixth UCL title in the last 11 seasons, but this one will be the first that they have ever gone an entire UCL campaign unbeaten.

They won all six of their group games, before overcoming RB Leipzig, Pep Guardiola’s Man City on penalties and German giants Bayern Munich thanks to two stoppage time goals from sub Joselu in the second leg to book their place at Wembley. Carlo Ancelotti has reached more European Cup/Champions League finals and won more titles than any other manager in the competition’s history and another victory here would make them the first manager to win the famous trophy five times. 

Standing in their way of history are a Dortmund side who are looking to avenge their 2013 UCL final defeat to Bayern at the same ground and lift the famous trophy for the first time since 1997. A lot of people had written off BVB this campaign, but after coming out of the group of death, they have knocked out PSV, Atletico, and most recently Ligue 1 champions PSG without conceding a single goal across both legs.

Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid match tip

Under 2.5 goals @ 6/5 with BetMGM

Champions League finals are usually close affairs, with each of the last five seeing two or fewer goals scored in each of them. This includes Real Madrid’s 1-0 victory over Liverpool in 2021/22 when Vinicius Junior scored the only goal of the game. Both of Dortmund’s semi-final matches against PSG saw just one goal scored in each of them.
