Atletico Madrid eased into the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 4-2 aggregate victory over Bayer Leverkusen.

All the goals were scored in the first leg in Germany with the Spanish side hanging on fairly comfortably in the home leg to draw 0-0 on Wednesday.

However, Diego Simeone's side did have a major scare, but Jan Oblak came to the rescue with perhaps the most ridiculous display of goalkeeping you will see anywhere all season.

The former Benfica man produced the outrageous display of goalkeeping in the 77th-minute to prevent any chance of a dramatic comeback. The Gandalf "you shall not pass" meme was created specifically for this situation.

Julian Brandt's effort was brilliantly palmed away before Kevin Volland was denied on two occasions.

The Slovenian international has been in sensational form in European competition, keeping five clean sheets and conceding just two goals.

In typically humble fashion, Oblak said he knew very little about the wonder save  when speaking to BT Sport 3, as per Daily Mail :  "I don't know. It was going very quickly. Sometimes you defend three and the ball doesn't go in. I'm happy for that."


His reputation is on the rise and Oblak is quickly becoming one of the finest goalkeepers in world football.
