Malanda misses absolute sitter

With his side down 2-1 against Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, we have a sneaking suspicion that Wolfsburg midfielder Junior Malanda will rue this absolutely risible nailed-on sitter of a miss.

Horrible, just... horrible.

Wolfsburg did go on to lose 2-1, so Malanda's miss was the difference.

But are we being too harsh? Did the ball carom off the bar too fast for him to react?

Should an elite player be expected to score there? Would Fernando Torres? Would YOU?

Could you have scored the chance missed by Junior Malanda?
