Bayern Munich come away with a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina in a very controversial way. First, Massimo Gobbi is given a straight red card for a body check on Arjen Robben. Now, I'm not saying Robben is a diver, but he does a nice job of rolling around on the ground in agony. The official probably saw that Gobbi's elbow was raised and seemed to catch Robben in the neck. So Robben is sent off.
Fiorentina played admirably well with 10 men. Then, in the 89th minute, Miroslav Klose is three yards offside as he puts the winning goal into the back of the net. The linesman completely misses it. This is one where it would be very easy to overturn the goal with video technology. A very quick look by an official in a booth will let everyone know that Klose was way, way offside.
