Supporters were left stunned after Paris Saint-Germain striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting produced an unbelievable goal-line miss during his side’s draw with Strasbourg.
With the French giants drawing, Christopher Nkunku raced through one-on-one with keeper Mats Sels and lifted the ball over him.
The youngster’s effort appeared goalbound until the onrushing Choupo-Moting somehow, needlessly, stopped it on the line and failed to turn it home, denying his side a second.

Reacting to miss, one fan on Twitter said: ‘What have I just seen’, while another actually felt it was ‘the best SAVE of all time’.
Choupo-Moting had given the champions-in-waiting the lead after 13 minutes before Nuno Da Costa’s leveller.
Anthony Goncalves then gave the visitors a shock lead, but substitute Thilo Kehrer headed a late equaliser.

A draw wasn’t enough to seal the Ligue 1 title for PSG, who will have to wait until they visit Lille on April 14 to seal a second-consecutive crown.
With Neymar and Edinson Cavani out of the match through injury and Kylian Mbappe rested on the bench, the Cameroon international – who joined from Stoke in 2018 – was handed a rare start.
He was replaced by Mbappe after 60 minutes with his side a goal behind and chasing the game.
