Any budding goalkeepers, look away now.

Tuesday's Champions League meeting between Liverpool and Real Madrid was billed as a clash of some of the best players on the planet, but that memo clearly didn't reach the goalkeepers.

After Darwin Nunez's opening goal, Thibaut Courtois gifted a second to Mohamed Salah by literally kneeing the ball towards him, evidently forgetting how to use his go-go-gadget legs.

Liverpool fans were loving it, and the scorned Chelsea fans couldn't help themselves either.

But the fun didn't stop there, as after Vinicius Junior pulled one back, Alisson went and had a howler of his own.

The Liverpool stopper decided to pass the ball right at Vinicius and could only watch on as the ricochet bobbled its way into the back of the net.

These are two of the best goalkeepers in the world, by the way.

Loris Karius, the villain of the 2018 Champions League final, ended up trending on Twitter, such was the level of these mistakes.
