After last night’s match, Arturo Vidal suggested, perhaps bitterly, they shouldn’t be in the final, saying: “Today ugly football – Atletico – played against the best football in the world. 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.”
It’s not the first time this year Diego Simeone’s stubborn side have sneaked through either.
Against PSV Eindhoven in the round of 16, the two teams played for 210 minutes without a goal being scored, with the Spanish side progressing thanks to an 8-7 penalty shoot-out win.
So far, Simeone’s troops have won just six matches and drawn three and lost three in their campaign and, if you were to apply the normal point scoring system to all their matches, they would have only garnered 1.66 points per game, despite being a match away from lifting the trophy.
But which Champions League winners had the worst points per game record? talkSPORT takes a look…
