Hector Bellerin stormed down the right side of the pitch before cutting the ball across for Aubameyang to make it 1-0.
But the usually reliable striker made a complete hash of his attempt, which would have given the Gunners the lead.
Plenty of supporters shared his disbelief. One tweeted: ‘How will I explain that Aubameyang miss to my children.’
Another called it ‘the miss of the season’, while a third wrote: ‘Still can’t believe he missed an open goal, harder to miss than score.’
To make matters worse, Benfica then went ahead in the second half through Afonso Fernandes’ penalty.
But Mikel Arteta’s side swiftly replied as Cedric Soares delivered a superb ball into the box for Bakayo Saka to finish from close range.
