In a very rare showing from Manchester City scoring machine Sergio Aguero, the Argentine striker committed a rare miss on a penalty kick during one of the biggest matches of his career.
During the Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain, Aguero lined up to take the penalty kick after Kevin De Bruyne was fouled by the PSG stopper. But in a rare mistake, his shot went a yard wide of the post rolled harmlessly away to preserve the 2-2 aggregate tie.

Anthony Martial is better than Sergio Aguero. I would genuinely rather have Martial.

Aguero’s bad luck continued in the minutes that followed. Shortly afterwards he was kneed in the stomach by a PSG defender, and right after that he would land awkwardly on his left leg during a header chance and was forced off the field temporarily.
Fans were quick to climb on Aguero for showing such a susceptibility to injury, having missed multiple games this season with various leg ailments.
Sergio Aguero is made entirely from glass.

Sergio Aguero would be great if he wasn’t made of twigs.

Suffice it to say, it has not been a good day for the Man City striker.
