Jamal Muisala didn't manage to get Lionel Messi's match shirt even though he asked for it following the final whistle.
Musiala starred as Bayern Munich beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 (3-0 on aggregate) on Wednesday to book their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Serge Gnabry got on the score-sheet at the Allianz Arena to seal a big European win.
Messi was unable to influence the game as he was handed a brutal rating by L'Equipe. Despite his underwhelming showing in Germany, Musiala was hellbent on bagging his match-worn shirt.
He asked for his jersey after the final whistle, with Messi gesturing to meet him in the tunnel. But the German wonderkid couldn't find the 35-year-old World Cup winner following the match.

"I didn't find him," he told reporters when asked if he received Messi's shirt.
It's a completely different situation for Musiala's teammate Alphonso Davies, who finally managed to get Messi's shirt after the first-leg last month.
If the 20-year-old doesn't already have a Messi match-worn shit, then he may not get another opportunity as the PSG star's contract is up at the end of the season, with the player linked with a move away from Europe.
The former Chelsea youth product, meanwhile, produced another stunning showing, with Rio Ferdinand hailing the superstar talent.
"This kid, he has been talked about as one of the best young talents in the world, I think he's gone beyond that now, I think he's one of the best," he said on BT Sport.
"He's top in terms of goals and assists at Bayern Munich now and they're looking to sign him to a new contract. This kid is the real deal.
"I would go as far to say I'd back him to be at least top three in the Ballon d'Or at some point in his career, if not - winning it. He's that good, his balance, his skill.
"I remember Owen Hargreaves said to me 'Rio, he reminds me of Kaka at his best' and I laughed at him and said 'what?' I hadn't seen enough of him. But I can see that now."
