Los Blancos Weather the Storm

Real Madrid were calm in the face of Dortmund’s dominance. With his team still in the game, Thibaut Courtois produced several vital stops in outstanding form. Luka Modrić and Toni Kroos’s experience helped Real Madrid hold onto midfield control late in the first half, giving Dortmund the chance to build on their early advantage.

Vinicius Jr. Seals the Win

In the 83rd minute, Real Madrid took advantage of a counterattacking opportunity as Dortmund pushed for an equalizer. After Luka Modrić’s lovely through pass, Vinicius Jr. who had been an ongoing danger throughout the second half pounced onto the ball and folded it past Meyer to increase Real Madrid’s lead.
