Jasmin Handanovic may have been paying close attention events in Manchester last night.
Playing tonight for Maribor in Liverpool, his night, a little like Benfica's Mile Svilar when they faced Man United last night, is having plenty of ups and down.
Having been on the end of a 7-0 hammering on match-day 3, Maribor had redeemed themselves somewhat tonight; holding Liverpool to 0-0 at half-time.
Handanovic played no small part in keeping parity:
However, a little like Svilar last night, redemption was not for keeping.
With Liverpool coming out of the blocks for the second-half with a fresh enthusiasm, Handanovic will be far from happy with his effort to keep out the prolific Mo Salah:

Far from secure in their efforts to qualify for the knockout rounds just yet, you would expect Liverpool to kick on from here.
Seemingly been given a perfect opportunity to do just that, it was Handanovic who had another chance at making amends; facing up to a usually reliable James Milner from the penalty spot.
In the end however, Maribor's resistance was broken and Liverpool cantered home to a 3-0 victory.
Jurgen Klopp's men have now taken the required 6 points from the group's weakest club and they will look toward matches with Sevilla and Spartak Moscow knowing that their Champions League fate is in their own hands.
