Real Madrid won their 15th Champions League title by beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at Wembley. Dortmund played well in the first half, but Real Madrid was better in the second half. Vinicius Junior scored in the 83rd minute, and Dani Carvajal scored nine minutes before that. Madrid’s goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois made many important saves, and Niclas Fullkrug almost scored but hit the post. Dortmund’s coach did well in the first half, but Madrid’s coach made good changes for the second half. Jude Bellingham helped Vinicius Junior score the final goal. This goal ended Dortmund’s hopes of winning. Real Madrid showed they can win important games. Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez congratulated the team.

Difficult words: beat (to defeat), goalkeeper (the player who stands in the goal and stops the other team from scoring), post (a long piece of metal which supports the structure of a goal).
