Rodrigo Bentancur Produces Shocking Backpass As Porto Take The Lead Inside Two Minutes
Rodrigo Bentancur produced a horrible backpass to help Porto take the lead against Juventus inside two minutes this evening.
The Italian giants were heavy favourites going into their Champions League round of 16 clash.
But Bentancur has already given them a mountain to climb after attempting a backpass to goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny in his own box.
It was completely underhit however and it spun into the path of Mehdi Taremi who bundled home to the home side's delight.
What on earth!?
61 seconds into the game, Porto have been gifted the lead! :large_blue_circle::white_circle:

Fans have reacted to the incident and they can't believe how poor the Uruguayan's composure was so early in the game.

As long as Bentancur is at Juventus and in the starting XI, we are headed no where.

The only good thing Juventus can say about that goal is that they have 179 minutes to recover from it.
