The 2002 UEFA Champions League Final was a football match held at Hampden Park, Glasgow, on 15 May 2002 and the final match of the 2001–02 UEFA Champions League – the 47th season of the European Cup and the 10th under the UEFA Champions League format.

The match pitted German club Bayer Leverkusen against Real Madrid of Spain. Real Madrid won 2–1, clinching their ninth European Cup title, and their third in five years. However, the match is remembered as a very close one. Real Madrid's Spanish forward Raúl opened the scoring in the eighth minute, but, five minutes later, Brazilian defender Lúcio levelled the scores with a header that beat goalkeeper César Sánchez. But in the 45th minute, one of the most beautiful goals in UEFA Champions League history was scored; Zinedine Zidane received a high, arcing cross from Roberto Carlos on the edge of the penalty area, volleying a left-footed shot into the top corner. In the 68th minute, César was injured and had to be replaced by 21-year-old Iker Casillas. With the young Casillas between the posts, Real Madrid managed to hold their ground against a very attacking Leverkusen side until the final whistle from referee Urs Meier.

Before the match a minute of silence was held in honour of Ukrainian player and coach Valeri Lobanovsky, who died two days earlier.
