LONDON — Arjen Robben scored in the 89th minute to give Bayern Munich a win over German rival Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final, ending four years of frustration for his team in Europe's biggest tournament.

Robben ran onto Franck Ribery's backheeled flick in the penalty area and sent the ball past goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller to give Bayern its first Champions League victory since 2001. The German team had lost two of the last three finals.

Mario Mandzukic put Bayern ahead in the 60th minute at Wembley Stadium before Ilkay Gundogan evened the score with a penalty kick eight minutes later after defender Dante fouled Marco Reus.
