New victory for Real Madrid in the Champions League

02 June 2024 / Jerome Goulon

There is a famous saying: “Football is played with 11 players, and in the end, Germany wins”. Unfortunately for the German club Borussia Dortmund, who faced Real Madrid this Saturday evening at Wembley in the Champions League final, the formula that is more appropriate in the European Cup is "Football is played at 11, and in the end, Real Madrid win. » Real Madrid indeed won their 15th C1, an absolute record in the event, by winning 2-0 against Dortmund thanks to goals from Dani Carjaval (74′) and Vinicius (83′).

The BVB, which had eliminated PSG in the semi-final and which had nevertheless been impactful during the first hour of the match, did not have to realize its chances and its rapid counter-attacks, even hitting the post in the 23rd minute of play , Carjaval and Vinicius coming to bury the German hopes in the last quarter of an hour.

Carlo Ancelotti, Real's Italian coach, wins his third Champions League with Real Madrid (2014, 2022 and 2024), his fifth overall as coach after his victories in 2003 and 2007 with AC Milan.

The Spanish club therefore once again proves its omnipotence in Europe, and shows that despite its pressure behind the scenes for years to recruit Kylian Mbappé, it does not need the French star to achieve its objectives. The pressure will therefore be great for Mbappé next season, who will have everything to prove by arriving at a club which has won everything for decades and which, for its part, has had nothing to prove for a long time...
