- AP PHOTOS: Bayern beats Dortmund 2-1 in final
Bayern Munich defeated German rival Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the Champions League final Saturday night, ending four years of frustration for Bayern in Europe's biggest soccer tournament. Arjen Robben ran onto Franck Ribery's backheeled flick in the penalty area and put the ball past goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller in the 89th minute to send Bayern to its first Champions League victory since 2001. Bayern had lost two of the last three finals, including a penalty-kicks defeat to Chelsea last year in Munich. Bayern entered as the favorite, although that message didn't seem to have filtered through to Juergen Klopp's Dortmund team, which seemed intent on dictating play from the start. It largely succeeded for the first 25 minutes as well, although it was Bayern that ended up with the best chances of the first half.
