Bernardo Silva produces horror Champions League miss in PSG vs Man City

  • Rob Swan

Bernardo Silva produced one of the worst misses we’ve seen in the Champions League during the first half of Paris Saint-Germain vs Manchester City at the Parc des Princes.

Raheem Sterling hit the crossbar with a header before the ball bounced kindly to Bernardo inside the six-yard box.

But to everyone’s disbelief, the Portuguese midfielder somehow failed to hit the target.

PSG were 1-0 up by this point thanks to Idrissa Gueye’s early strike.

Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe all started the match but it was Gueye who put PSG ahead with an emphatic finish from close range.


Bernardo Silva’s miss vs PSG

Bernardo was presented with a golden opportunity to level the scores midway through the first half but inexplicably hit the crossbar from two yards out.

Watch the footage here:

PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was on the floor. The Italian couldn’t believe his luck as he watched the ball come back off the crossbar and bounce to safety.

How costly might that miss be for the Premier League side?
