Atletico Madrid’s win over Bayern Munich on away goals in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi final that saw the Madrid side head to the final has left badly wounded souls in Bavaria.
Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal cut a frustrated figure in the aftermath of the match and speaking of the game, he blasted Atletico for anti football tactics, saying they played ugly football.
Trailing to Saul Niguez’s goal in the first leg, Bayern needed a win by two clear goals but that never came to be as Antoine Griezman struck in the second half to ensure Atletico advances despite losing 1 – 2 on the night.
The Spaniards did not enjoy much possession and a swipe at them had Vidal say they are undeserving finalists.
“Atletico did exactly what they have been doing all year in their league and took advantage of their chances.”
“Today ugly football – Atletico – played against the best football in the world,” he added. “The only time they saw the ball was for the goal.
“They are going to be dreaming about us right up to the final. They did not have the ball, they took on the best team in the world, they took their chances and got to the final.
“The best does not always win in football, like today. They are not deserved finalists.” He said.
