Real Madrid are the all-conquering champions of this prestigious club football competition having won the Champions League a record 14 times. That’s double the amount of the second-ranked team (Italy’s AC Milan). Los Blancos last lifted the coveted CL trophy in 2022 after defeating Premier League side Liverpool in Paris. Real Madrid will march to London’s iconic Wembley Stadium looking to extend their record and bring the trophy back to Spain. 

However, Dortmund have proved throughout this year’s Champions League tournament they are not to be underestimated. They finished in an underwhelming fifth position in the Bundesliga table, but their road to the CL final has seen them top one of the hardest groups in European history, and then eliminate PSV, Atlético Madrid and PSG to book their place at Wembley. The Black and Yellows will be on a mission to perform another giant slaying and earn their second-ever CL title (Dortmund last won this competition in 1997 beating Juventus 3-1). 

The Dortmund vs Real Madrid match is being billed by some as a David vs Goliath clash, and while that’s perhaps a little unfair on Dortmund, it’s certainly a CL final with an obvious favorite. But while Real Madrid are expected to secure their 15th title, Dortmund will play without fear and hope to upset the odds for a final time this season. 

Looking at the history of this matchup, Dortmund and Real Madrid have met 14 times in this tournament, with the Black and Yellows earning three wins, and Los Blancos claiming six victories. Their last CL meeting was in 2017, during the group stage, on that occasion, the score was 3-2 in a thrilling contest that saw Cristiano Ronaldo getting on the scoreline. So, let's hope for a similarly exciting match today.  

You won’t want to miss this match, as it’s got star players all over the pitch, and features two historic teams with serious European pedigree. We’ve got all the details you need to watch the Dortmund vs Real Madrid live stream below, including how to stream online for free.
