We’ve watched this a few times and we are still not sure whether Anatoliy Tymoshchuk has spotted that Ivica Olic was offside when the ball is played through, or if he just really fancied getting on the scoresheet in last night’s victory over Werder Bremen.

Either way, the Bayern Munich man uses his best blocking skills to try to keep Olic off the ball. But the Croatian manages to interfere with play and the offside flag is raised.

A frustrated Tymoschchuk then gets himself booked for a minor tangle with an opponent, but his foul on Olic was far more cynical.
