Mourinho said Madrid was at something of a disadvantage because it couldn't rest players last weekend like Bayern did. While the Bundesliga league race was wrapped up, Madrid had to face Barcelona in a game that essentially decided the Spanish league title. Madrid's 2-1 victory gave Mourinho's team a seven-point lead in the domestic league with four games remaining.
Still, Mourinho conceded that Bayern "deserve to go through."
"That's the beauty of football, nobody knows what's going to happen," Mourinho said. "I hope it's a good final."
