Watch: Slavia Player Scores A Corker Despite Trying To Avoid The Ball

This is one of the stranger goals we have seen. Czech side Slavia Praha travelled to Spain tonight hoping to cause an upset, attempting to conquer perennial Europa League contenders Sevilla.

Despite falling behind inside 30 seconds to a goal from Wissam Ben Yedder, they would draw level just before the half hour mark. The parity didn't last long, however, with Munir restoring the home side's lead three minutes later.

The scoring in the first half was not finished yet, with the visitors drawing level with one of the strangest goals we have seen in a while. It was Alex Kral who would provide the finding touch, but he certainly didn't mean it. In fact, it looked as though he was trying to get out of the way of the corner, before knocking it in with his shoulder.

Bizarre. It looks like he got a shout from the man behind him to leave the ball, but couldn't get out of the way in time. He was more surprised than anyone when the ball somehow found its way into the back of the net!

Regardless of his intent, this goal was ultimately enough to secure a shock draw for his side. They will now travel back to Czech Republic in a fantastic position to advance to the quarter finals. We just won't see this one being nominated for the Puskas Award anytime soon.
