Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini said his team lost to Real Madrid Wednesday night because it was luckless. Man City lost to Real during the semi-final encounter that ended 1-0. The English team went down by an own goal sired by a deflection of Gareth Bale’s kick.
"We didn't deserve to lose this game, the goal was very lucky or we were very unlucky it was a cross that was deflected into the top corner. Of course if you don't reach the final you have missed an opportunity. We played against a very strong team that wasn't better than us.
"Tonight and the game we played at the Etihad we saw very equal teams. I don't think Real Madrid demonstrated tonight that they are better than Manchester City." Pellegrini said.
