Watch: Benfica 'Keeper Mile Svilar Scores Ridiculously Unlucky Own Goal

Watch: Benfica 'Keeper Mile Svilar Scores Ridiculously Unlucky Own Goal

Spare a thought for Benfica's 18-year-old goalkeeper Mile Svilar. Only two weeks after fumbling Marcus Rashford's match winning free-kick over the line during Benfica's Champions League clash with Manchester United, the teenager has just scored the unluckiest own goal you will see this season to hand United the lead at Old Trafford.

And it had all started so well for the Belgium youth international, after he saved Anthony Martial's first half penalty to keep the score at 0-0, becoming the youngest goalkeeper to save a penalty in the Champions League, in the process.

Svilar's short career doesn't seem to stay clear of drama for long, as not long before half-time he watched Nemanja Matic thunder a 30-yard effort against the base of the post, only for the ball to rebound against his back and into the net.

Having been comforted by Romelu Lukaku and David De Gea after his unfortunate error in the last game between the two teams, at least Svilar can take some solace in the fact that there was absolutely nothing he could do about the opening goal, tonight.
