After roaring into 19th-minute lead, Mainz held on to earn a 1-1 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon.

Gladbach eventually equalised through Jan Vestergaard in the 67th minute but they were almost gifted a route back into the match much earlier, when Mainz goalkeeper Robin Zentner came perilously close to dropping a superb clanger.

Honestly, Zentner’s error almost defies explanation, with the stopper caught playing with an imaginary ball during a momentary lapse of spatial awareness…

Have you ever seen anything like it? It’s like Zentner glitched outside the system for a split second.

Even Gladbach’s social media team had a light-hearted pop while live-tweeting the action…

Just when you think you’ve seen it all.

    He mistook the penalty-spot for the ball. Another camera angle makes this clear. He also confirmed this in a post-match interview.
