Dortmund will face 14-time winners Real Madrid in the 2023-24 UCL final

Coach Edin Terzic stated on Tuesday that Borussia Dortmund can end Real Madrid’s streak of victories in the Champions League finals when they square off on Saturday at Wembley Stadium.

Since the UEFA Champions League took the place of the European Cup in 1992, Real Madrid have prevailed in all eight of its final UCL matches.

In the total of 14 European championships, the last five Champions League titles were captured in the last ten seasons. Terzic stated that although records are meant to be broken, Dortmund would have to play at their very best.

How many Champions League trophies have Borussia Dortmund won in their history?

Borussia Dortmund‘s lone Champions League or European Cup victory came against that time’s defending champion Juventus in the 1997 final, placing them on a short list of teams with such titles.

Ottmar Hitzfeld’s team came in second in Group B, behind Atletico Madrid and were considered outsiders to have an effect on the competition. But they easily defeated French team Auxerre in the quarterfinals thanks to a fortunate draw and later triumphed both at home and away against Manchester United in the semifinals.

Die Schwarzgelben first participated in the 1956–57 European Cup season. Their best performance in the competition occurred in 1964 when they were eliminated by Inter Milan in the semifinals.

Dortmund’s only Cup Winners’ Cup triumph over Liverpool in 1966 preceded their decline into the UEFA Cup, marking their last tournament appearance in more than thirty years.

They were defeated by Real Madrid in the semifinals of their 1998 championship title defence. Dortmund didn’t make it to the finals again until the 2013 UCL, during the Jurgen Klopp era, when they were defeated at Wembley by bitter rivals Bayern Munich.
