Controversial ‘Ghost Goal’ Sends Bayer Leverkusen Top of the Bundesliga [VIDEO]: Nightly Soccer Report

A controversial goal scored by Bayer Leverkusen’s Stefan Kiessling sent the German club top of the Bundesliga tonight, but incredibly the winning goal scored by Kiessling shouldn’t have been awarded since the ball never went into the back of the net.

Watch the video below to see how Kiessling’s header appeared to go into the back of the net, but then watch the replays to uncover what really happened.

BT Sport commentator Jonathan Pearce, at first, thought the ball went into the back of the net, but co-commentator Kevin Kilbane noticed that the ball didn’t go in.

With the goal, Leverkusen beat Hoffenheim 2-1 and leapfrogged Bayern Munich to go top of the table. Despite Kiessling saying to the referee that the ball didn’t go into the back of the net, the referee awarded the goal.
