Oh to be Alvaro Dominguez. The Borussia Monchengladbach defender etched his name into Bundesliga folklore on Friday night after a bizarre double fail in the defeat to Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich.

Bayern were leading 2-1 courtesy of goals from Arjen Robben and Mario Mandzukic when Dominguez handled in the area to provide the German champions with the opportunity to score the decisive goal in the encounter.

Thomas Muller was tasked with converting from the spot, but his penalty was spectacularly saved by Marc-André ter Stegen to save the blushes of Gladbach's Spanish ace. Or perhaps not.

As the ball bounced around in the box, Dominguez attempted to clear his lines and nullify the danger only to once again handle the ball and immediately give Bayern another penalty kick.

This time, David Alaba made no mistake from 12 yards and Bayern held out to take a 3-1 win and secure a first competitive victory under the reign of Guardiola.
