Gianluigi Donnaruma is currently enduring a rough patch in front of the goal.

As per ESPN reports, Donnaruma committed a significant error in the match, resulting in Japanese attacker, Takumi Minamino scoring the opening goal for Adolf Hutter's side.

Although PSG would eventually hit their opponent for five, Donnaruma's blunder stood out as a noteworthy moment. The official page of the French Ligue 1 took the opportunity to playfully mock the goalkeeper for his mistake.
