Mason Greenwood sees penalty SAVED by Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Unai Simon as Man Utd loanee fails to spark Getafe comeback against nine men


WHAT HAPPENED?

Manchester United loanee Greenwood was handed a perfect chance to pull a goal back for Getafe against nine men when a penalty was awarded in the 88th minute. However, he saw his spot-kick saved by Unai Simon, and Bilbao were able to see out a 2-0 win.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

Bilbao had taken the 2-0 lead through a brace from Inaki Williams. However, in the second half, both Yeray Alvarez and Aitor Paredes were sent off, leaving them to finish the game with nine men. A goal from Greenwood would have sparked a grandstand finish but Simon’s heroic stop proved vital.

DID YOU KNOW?

Greenwood has been linked with a move to Juventus after a fine season in Spain, in which he has posted a personal best in terms of league goal contributions. His miss on Friday, though, will undoubtedly come as a blow.
