Totally this. Barcelona were the better team and every one knows after watching the match that chelsea deserve to go through but barcelona are much better whereas madrid were outplayed in both the legs even though the final result was close.
We aren't comparing madrid with chelsea here so we can't say only goals matter because we are looking at the wide picture concerning how good madrid actually are. We all know chelsea aren't that good.
