We're halfway through regulation time of the 2024 UEFA Champions League final, folks. Has everyone caught their breath yet?

Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid are still locked level at 0-0 but it was hardly a half without incident.

It was quite the first 45 over at Wembley. Before the game even started, we were treated to some Lenny Kravitz. Even if not everyone was a fan.

And even when the match did get underway, it had to be stopped again. Not one, not two, but three pitch invaders managed to evade security within the first minute!

Good thing Wembley didn't just spend a bucketload on improving security, right? Right? Right?

When the football got properly going, it was in fact Dortmund who looked the stronger side. Firstly, Mats Hummels picked out the run of Karim Adeyemi in behind, but the forward took his touch too wide of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and his eventual effort was denied.

Soon after, Niclas Fullkrug struck the post while Adeyemi spurned another opportunity to put Dortmund ahead.

We've seen this story before.

BVB were furious when Vinicius Junior, already on a booking, appeared to take a dive and was spared his marching orders.

After four minutes of stoppage time, the referee blew for the break. Everything's still to play for.
