Embarrassing own goal in Champions League play

Radim Reznik was in no man's land. But did the Viktoria Plzen defender have to sell out his goalie the way he did in Wednesday's Champions League match against CSKA Moscow? Probably not. Instead, Reznik authored one of the most embarrassing own goals seen at any level. While being pressured by Moscow midfielder Zoran Tosic, Reznik attempted a back pass to keeper Matus Kozacik. Kozacik was completely caught off guard by the move and allowed the ball to slide under his boot in humiliating fashion. The gaffe ended up being the difference in an eventual 3-2 CSKA Moscow victory.
