    The other team had a better head to head record against you probably - goal difference is way down on the list of criteria to separate tied teams.

    I would've posted the rules but I forgot where I put them. Maybe someone else will.

    But its roughly:

    Points gained in matches against each other; then
    Goals scored against each other; then
    Away Goals against each other; etc

    If I remember where they are I'll edit in.

    Edit: here- these are the main UEFA CL criteria the game uses

    f) superior goal difference from all group matches played;
    g) higher number of goals scored fr om all group matches played
