Bayer Leverkusen star Kerem Demirbay was left in disbelief after fluffing an easy chance to score against Borussia Monchengladbach.
The midfielder somehow failed to convert from just five yards out after an initial shot was pushed onto the bar by Belgian keeper Logan Bailly on Saturday afternoon.
Demirbay pounced on the rebound and looked destined to tap into an empty net after bringing the ball under control, but couldn’t take the chance.

Elvedi sprang into action after realising the danger, and stretched across to get his right foot on the ball and deflect it over.
After seeing his effort go over, Demirbay sank to his knees and held his hands over his face in dismay.

Luckily for Demirbay, his mistake did not cost his side the points as they ran out 3-1 winners – he’ll also take some comfort from the fact there were no real fans there to see his embarrassing miss.
Kai Havertz, who has attracted interest from some of Europe’s best teams, including Barcelona and Liverpool, was in much better form in front of goal than Demirbay and scored twice in Saturday’s victory.
Sven bender added a third late on while Monchengladbach’s only goal came from Marcus Thurman in the 52nd minute of the game.
