Dortmund, meanwhile, upset Paris Saint-Germain in the last four with a superb display to reach their first final in the competition since 2013.

On that occasion, Dortmund fell to a 2-1 defeat to German rivals Bayern at  but will be hoping for a different outcome this weekend as they return to London.

But there will be more than just a trophy on the line at Wembley, with the winning team also set to receive a significant cash prize.

The winner of Saturday’s showpiece event will pocket €20million (£17.1m), with the runner-up also taking home a healthy €15.5m (£13.2m).

Another €600m (£512m) is handed out to teams based on their UEFA coefficient rankings, while the final €300m (£256m) from broadcasting is shared between national federations and their respective clubs.
