MOST COMMENTED

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE]All signs pointed to a Bayern Munich victory, but the German club needed a late goal from Miroslav Klose -- scoring in an offside position -- to beat 10-man Fiorentina in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League round-of-16 series on Wednesday.

Klose, who scored on a header in the 89th minute after Arjen Robben's shot came loose, said he was offside before even seeing the replay and then when he saw it admitted that his winning goal should have been called off.

Fiorentina, which had lost four of its last five Serie A games, held Bayern, winner of 12 straight games in all competitions, was holding on to a 1-1 tie at the Allianz Arena even after defender Massimo Gobbi was handed a straight red card for an elbow to Robben's throat in the 72nd minute.

The German team piled on the chances until Klose won the game.

Robben opened the scoring from the penalty spot at the stroke of halftime, but Dane Per Kroldrop equalized five minutes into the second half.
