The midfielder has a perfect record from the spot since joining United, converting his last in total.
He was denied, however, by Miguel Soares during Sporting Lisbon vs Loures in October 2018 - the last time he missed a penalty.
Soares explained his saving technique to the Daily Star and revealed Fernandes always looks at the keeper when taking his spot kick.
"The save was a great moment. The secret was the small movement I made to the left.
"Bruno looks at the keeper when he takes a penalty, so I did the same to him. I feigned to dive to the left, and went to the right.
"I wanted to make Bruno take his decision as late as possible. I didn't want to make his life easier.
"We took Sporting all the way to extra time, and still gave them a scare before they won 2-1."
