Robin van Persie missed a golden chance for an away goal at the end of Olympiakos 2 – Man United 0 [Vine]

Manchester United have it all to do in their Champions League round of 16 second leg, having suffered a Greek tragedy in Athens tonight.

United lost 2-0, but it could have been less tragic had Robin van Persie managed to bag a crucial away goal with this easy chance on 81′.

The ball was perfectly crossed into RVP’s path, but the floundering Dutchman messed up the chance, one of the few (only?) he got all night.

RVP took the ball down well, shifted the ball onto his right foot, but then blazed over with a lot of the goal to aim for.
