Roma took on Palermo at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday night, and Edin Džeko grabbed the headlines after the game for the wrong reasons. 

The former Manchester City striker went viral thanks to the fact that he missed an absolute sitter in front of an open goal, somehow managing to steer a clear chance wide of the far post. 

The Bosnian striker didn't let it bother him too much however as he slotted home a goal in each half and Roma went on to win 5-0. 

Another former Premier League man, Mo Salah, was on the scoresheet from an almost impossible angle as he grabbed the fourth after a bad touch took him too wide. However, he still dinked it in from close to the byline.  

Džeko wasn't the only player putting his name forward for the miss of the season award however, as Agustín Parra of Santiago Wanderers somehow managed to miss this chance against Palestino in the Chilean Primera División.

So whose miss was worse?
