After struggling in the first half, Madrid were much improved in the second half and took the lead on 74 minutes after Carvajal headed home Toni Kroos’ corner kick.

In the 83rd minute Vinicius sealed it for Madrid as he was teed up by Jude Bellingham before hitting a left foot strike past the Dortmund keeper.
