A fan captured Fernando’s opener for Spartak Moscow tonight and the clip doesn’t do Loris Karius many favours.
The German is completely flat-footed and takes far too long to get across to a ball that was actually quite central.
When a freekick taker sticks it in the top corner, a la Coutinho on Saturday, the keeper cannot be blamed – but Fernando’s effort is a metre inside the post.

If Karius wants to keep his spot in our Champions League side, he’ll need to do much better than this.
