Published on : 01-06-2024

UEFA Champions League Final: All You Need To Know

Both teams will join to be named the best European club when they face off at London's historic Wembley at 11 pm UAE time on Saturday.

Football fans would have hoped for a UEFA Champions League final between defending champions Abu Dhabi-owned Manchester City and European heavyweights Real Madrid. Still, that final happened at the quarterfinal stage, with Pep Guardiola's men going down valiantly.

Nonetheless, this season's showdown still promises to be a cracker. Record European champions Real Madrid will go toe-to-toe with German giants Borussia Dortmund. It has all the ingredients of a great contest, with both clubs jousting to be called the best club in Europe. England's most famous venue, Wembley, is the stage for this riveting encounter.

Here is all you need to know about the final:

Which teams are contesting the final match?

Spanish giants Real Madrid and German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund face off in the title showdown.

Where is the match being played?

The venue for the game is the historic Wembley Stadium in England. The venue in London is hosting Europe's elite club competition final for the eighth time.

What time does the match start?

The game starts at 11 pm UAE time.

How can you watch the match?

Fans in the UAE can watch the live telecast on beIN Sports.

What is at Stake?

Apart from the glittering trophy, the winners also have bragging rights of being called the best club in Europe. The champions also play against the winners of the Europa Cup final in the Uefa Super Cup.

Have any of these teams won the title previously?

Yes, Real Madrid has won it a record 14 times—1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1966, 1998, 2000, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2022, apart from finishing the runners-up title three times: 1962, 1964, and 1981.

Borussia Dortmund once won the glittering trophy in 1997 and was runner-up in 2013, when German tactician Jurgen Klopp coached them.

Have these two teams previously met in the Champions League?

Yes, they have met 14 times in different stages of the competition.

Path to the final

Real Madrid:

They were into a 3-3 draw against defending champions Manchester City in the first leg of the quarterfinals at the Santigo Bernabeu, Madrid fortress. The return leg in Manchester ended in a 1-1 stalemate before Madrid progressed 4-3 on penalties. They drew 2-2 against German giants Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in the first leg of the semifinals before earning a 2-1 win at home and setting up a final date with Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund:

They lost to Atletico Madrid 1-2 in the first leg of the quarterfinals at Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid but bounced back to win 4-2 at the Westfalenstadion and go through 5-4 on aggregate.

In the semifinal's first leg, Dortmund beat French giants Paris Saint German 1-0 at home before winning by an identical margin at the Parc des Princes to progress to the final 2-0 on aggregate.

Who is the top scorer in the competition?

Bayern Munich's English striker Harry Kane is the top scorer with eight goals.

Who are the coaches?

Real Madrid: Coached by celebrated manager Carlo Ancelotti. If they win on Saturday, the Italian can become the first coach to clinch the trophy a record five times. He won twice with Madrid in 2014 and 2022 and AC Milan in 2003 and 2007. Borrusia Dortmund: Coached by German-Croatian Edin Terzic.

What did the coaches say?

Carlo Ancelotti: "We have had so many problems and big injuries, not just the guys who were out long term. We lost Vinicius Junior, Bellingham and others for decent spells, and nobody discussed that. We have fantastic ability and character in this squad."

Edin Terzic: " It is almost surreal. In the grand scheme of things, we deserve to reach the final. We won't be favourites, and it will be tough. But it is just one match; anything is possible throughout one game. We have proven that already."
