The captain and usually prolific goal machine missed one glaring opportunity to put his side ahead and had two or three more chances which his manager said he would ‘in normal circumstances’ have put away.

Aubameyang will get another chance to find the back of the net against the Portuguese giants when the teams meet next week for the second leg of this Europa last 32.
