Ancelotti, Nacho and Modric were keen to stress on the eve of the match that Madrid's habit of winning in the Champions League is no coincidence.

Having found luck again in the first half, the Spanish champions consolidated their position in the second half.

Gregor Kobel was eventually forced to make a save in the 48th minute from a superb free-kick from Kroos, who was close to marking the final match of his club career.

Bellingham was made a world star during a three-year stint at Dortmund before moving to Madrid 12 months ago for a fee of more than 100 million euros ($108 million).

The England international was inches away from biting the hand that fed him as he failed to get the right touch on Vinicius' cross.

Madrid struck the decisive blow 16 minutes from time when Carvajal headed home a header from Kroos' corner.

Kobel then kept his side alive for a while with some superb saves from Eduardo Camavinga and Nacho, while Bellingham's goalward effort was turned behind by Nico Schlotterbeck.

But Bellingham had a chance to celebrate his comeback when his pass allowed Vinicius to give Dortmund a goal, although the Brazilian's powerful shot was saved by Kobel.
