Muller bemoans ‘bad luck and misfortune’

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.”
