Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller has bemoaned ‘back luck and misfortune’ during his side’s Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.
The German champions crashed out of the semi-final stage after being edged out 4-3 on aggregate by Zinedine Zidane’s team despite enjoying the majority of chances and possession.
“We played better than in Munich but we gave them a goal again,” Muller told German broadcaster Zdf, in quotes cited by ESPN FC.
“And you can't afford to do that over the two games.
“It was a crazy game and we invested everything into it. But in the end we were a little unlucky. Their goalkeeper Navas had a great game.
“Bad luck and misfortune are closely intertwined. This hurts a great deal, but we shouldn't be ashamed.
“We had a super chance to progress but we missed out again.
“We have so much quality in our squad, but we have to ask ourselves why we have missed out a lot, why we keep making these mistakes in the semi-finals.”
