Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed one of the easiest chances he’ll ever find in Thursday’s 1-1 Europa League draw against Benfica, side-footing a first-half shot wide of an open net from just outside the six-yard box.
The Arsenal forward, who was also flagged offside on four occasions, knows his subpar performance could prove costly. The Gunners likely need to win the continental competition to qualify for the Champions League next year given their positioning in the domestic table, and they now face a tense second leg against their Portuguese opponent next week.
Aubameyang apologised for his wastefulness on social media following the match.
“We deserved better and i should Score couple goals today but still one Game to Go we keep going,” Aubameyang wrote on Twitter.
