Dortmund vs Real Madrid

On Saturday night, at Wembley Stadium, a thrilling 2023–24 final between seasoned Champions League pros Real Madrid and underdogs Borussia Dortmund will decide continental supremacy.

In the meantime, Los Blancos will attempt to inscribe their name on the European Champion Clubs’ Cup for the fifteenth time. At the same time, the Bundesliga powerhouses hope that success would put an end to 27 years of suffering and secure Champions League championship number two.

In the final four, Edin Terzic’s team defeated Paris Saint-Germain to secure their trip to Wembley, while Carlo Ancelotti’s team prevented their future opponents from having an all-German final against Bayern Munich with a thrilling turnaround in the second leg.

The goal for Saturday’s unfancied team Borussia Dortmund is to exorcise the Champions League demons under the Wembley arch, 11 years after watching Arjen Robben’s scuffed shot drip over the line for Bayern Munich in a 2012-13 Der Klassiker final in London.

Dortmund’s overall trophy drought is not as long as their 27-year wait for their second Champions League title – they won the 2020-21 DFB-Pokal.

However, a Champions League winner’s medal would shine much brighter around the neck of Signal Iduna Park’s favorite son Reus before he clears out his Dortmund locker.

Dortmund and Real Madrid have faced off 14 times in Europe’s top competition. Not unexpectedly, Los Blancos have won six of their meetings, compared to BVB’s three victories.

Real’s last victories were in two group stage encounters during the 2017–18 campaign, while Dortmund hasn’t triumphed since a 2-0 second-leg quarterfinal victory in 2013–14—and even that was insignificant because Los Blancos had defeated them 3-0 in the first leg.

Though they have faced off in two semifinal matches—1997–1998 (won by Real Madrid) and 2012–13 (won by Dortmund—the stakes for this Saturday’s Wembley contenders have never been higher. The trophy is waiting for the winner.
