This puts to an end to Bayern’s four years of frustration at the UEFA Champions League. As a matter of fact, for Bayern it is the first Champions league trophy in last 12 years in spite of reaching to the finals two more times.
In the first half of the game, both teams missed a number of opportunities to put the ball in the goal. Eventually, on the 60th minute, Mario Mandzukic scored the first goal of the night after getting an assist from Arjen Robben. 8 minutes later, Ilkay Gundogan scored an equalizer for Borrusia Dortmund from a penalty. The penalty was given to Borrusia after Dante fouled Marco Reus. Bayern Munich has now 5 UEFA Champions League trophies. Only two other teams (Real Madrid (9 times) and AC Milan (7 times) in the history have won more than that. Bayern Munich is followed by Liverpool, Barcelona, Ajax, Inter Milan, and Manchester United.
