Real Madrid’s Champions League campaigns often resemble a precarious balancing act, where they appear close to faltering but manage to stay upright.

Carlo Ancelotti led Real Madrid to a historic 15th Champions League victory, securing his own record fifth title. The triumph came at Wembley against a formidable Borussia Dortmund, with late goals from Dani Carvajal and Vinicius Jr. clinching the win.

Amidst fireworks and celebrations, Ancelotti and his players hoisted the iconic trophy, concluding yet another thrilling chapter in their storied history.

While each victory has its own story, teams like Atletico Madrid and Liverpool, who have often found themselves on the losing side against Real Madrid, can relate to Dortmund’s agony. Dortmund’s players walked dejectedly past their devoted fans, who filled Wembley with their vibrant colors and passionate cheers.

The first half was a struggle for Real Madrid, as Dortmund’s pace and relentless pressure under Edin Terzic left them unsettled. Despite the challenges, Ancelotti’s team managed to hold on and reached halftime on level terms, showcasing their resilience and a bit of good fortune.
