Arsenal is hosting Bayern Munich in Champions League play on Wednesday, arguably the most anticipated game of the week. They almost got an early advantage in the game when Mesut Ozil was fouled by Jerome Boateng in the penalty box in the eighth minute.

Boateng looked displeased with the penalty but he was awarded a yellow card instead of a red. Ozil lined up to take the penalty kick against his child hood friend Manuel Neuer, the keeper for Bayern Munich.

Neuer red it the whole way and blocked it. Ozil pretty much went straight down the middle, to the right a little, the way Neuer went. Neuer almost stopped his dive to stay put to block it and punched it away.

It could’ve been a huge momentum swing for Arsenal had they scored.

Here is the penalty:
