The UEFA Champions League 2021/22 season was back with a bang as an exciting set of matches took place on Day 1 of matchday 1. The day began with Young Boys defeating Manchester United 2-1 and ended with a thriller at the Camp Nou, where Barcelona were defeated 3-0 by Bayern Munich. While goals are usually the most spoken about when it comes to football matches, fans interestingly debated about whose save was better after the UCL Instagram handle put up a post.
As shown in one of the videos, Argentina goalkeeper Juan Musso came up with an outstanding save from point-blank range for Atalanta during their Group F opener against Villarreal at the El Madrigal. The match eventually ended 2-2 with Atalanta left to thank their keeper for some stunning saves. In another match, Sevilla's Yassine Bounou made an excellent one-handed save to deny RB Salzburg the win. The UCL match ended a draw with 10-man Sevilla salvaging a point thanks to the heroics of the goalkeeper.
The UEFA Champions League posted an Instagram video of the outstanding saves from both Juan Musso and Yassine Bounou.
As per the responses to the UEFA Champions League's Instagram post, it seems that fans rated both saves at a similar level.
