Cape Town - Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal is convinced the best team did not progress to the Champions League final after they were beaten by Atletico Madrid in the semi-final.
The Bavarians created 23 shots on goal, with 11 on target, to Atleti's four and held 74% of the possession through the 90 minutes, but were only able to win the deciding tie 2-1, which brought the aggregate score over two legs to 2-2 and saw the Spanish side progress on the away-goals rule.
"Today there was one team who played ugly football against the best team in the world," Vidal told radio station COPE.
"We were the better team. We managed the game, but we did not take the chances we had. The only time they saw the ball was their goal.
"They will dream about us. They did not have the ball, they were up against the best team in the world, they took their chances and they are going to the final. In football the best team does not always win, as happened today."
Bayern still have two trophies to play for this season. They hold a five-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table with two games of the season remaining, while they take on rivals Dortmund in the final of the DFB-Pokal in the last game of the season.
