Video: Liverpool's Sadio Mane Botches Easy Goal vs. Bayern Munich in UCL

Sadio Mane will want that miss back.

The Liverpool attacker had a brilliant opportunity to put the Reds ahead in the first half of the club's Champions League Round of 16 matchup against Bayern Munich. 

Instead, the normally reliable Mane scuffed the shot badly after it fell to him in the box behind Bayern's defense. Mane turned but rushed the shot and send it wide.

In many ways, that miss defined much of the match for Liverpool, who attacked Bayern relentlessly but failed to find the final bit of magic. If Liverpool fail to advance, that wastefulness—and Mane's missed sitter—will be a major factor.
