Pellegrini Laments ‘Luckless’ Man City Defeat


By Ibrahim Olanipekun

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.
