THIS is the moment Manuel Neuer gets away with a shocking clearance fail… after being saved by the POST.

The German goalie committed the hilarious blunder during Bayern Munich’s 2-1 win over Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday.

Goals from Robert Lewandowski and Kinsgley Coman ensured the Germans preserved their 100 per cent record in the Champions League group stage.

But they almost made life hard for themselves when Neuer committed a huge error in the 28th minute.

As Bayern defended against a Dynamo attack, the ball came rolling back to Neuer in his six-yard box.

The goalkeeper ran out across the snow-covered grass to hoof the ball to safety.

But instead of making contact, Neuer instead kicked his foot OVER the ball, allowing it to roll towards goal.

The stopper could only stand and stare as a Dynamo goal beckoned.

But luckily for Neuer, the ball edged slightly wide and ended up bouncing off the post.

The potential catastrophe would certainly have taken the shine off Bayern’s performance up to that point.

The Germans had taken the lead after just 14 minutes thanks to a stunning overhead kick from Lewandowski.

The Polish ace even produced his piece of magic with his shoe laces UNTIED.

And Coman scored what turned out to be Bayern’s winner moments before half-time.

Dynamo fought back in the second half and managed to hit the target through Denys Harmash.

But Bayern, who lost 2-1 to Augsburg on Friday, dug deep to cling on for an important win – despite missing FIVE self-isolating players.
