Julian Brandt placed one just past the post in the 14th minute, before Adeyemi managed to round Courtois seven minutes later, but he took it just too wide, and Carvajal was across to make the challenge.

Fullkrug was next to come close, hitting one off the base of the post, before Courtois was forced into a smart save to deny Adeyemi, with the attacker’s running power causing so many issues.

Dani Carvajal sent Carlo Ancelotti’s side ahead in the 74th minute, before Vinicius Junior doubled their advantage in the 83rd minute, and Dortmund were unable to respond, with Real Madrid once again cementing their spot as the best side in European football.
