Liverpool are without first choice goalkeeper Alisson at the moment through injury, meaning second choice Adrian is currently wearing the gloves.
The former West Ham keeper has let in nine goals in his previous two games for Jurgen Klopp's side and so he was really hoping for no mishaps in the Champions League in midweek.
Whilst he managed not to concede in the first half he did have a ridiculous moment where he tackled his own player. Gomez was trying to shepherd the ball back to the Spaniard and keep David Neres away from the ball but, instead of come to collect the ball in his hands, Adrian managed to make a meal of it and tackle Gomez.
The centre backs reaction perfectly summed up what everyone else was thinking.

Gomez is going to be extremely important for the rest of the season after Virgil van Dijk's season ending injury on Saturday, after Jordan Pickford's awful challenge.
The 23-year-old will likely be paired with Joel Matip for much of the season, although on Wednesday he was partnered by Fabinho.
Klopp's side will be hoping for better from the Champions League than last season. The six times winners were knocked out in the quarter finals by Atletico Madrid back in March.
As well as Ajax, they also face FC Midtjylland and Atalanta in the group stages.
