Video: Coutinho scores outrageous back-heel for Bayern only to be denied by offside flag

Bayern Munich midfielder Philippe Coutinho saw a superb finish ruled out for offside in a Champions League clash against Red Star Belgrade.

The German champions are currently 1-0 up in the Group B clash, thanks to a brilliant Kingsley Coman header in the 34th minute.

The French winger very nearly contributed an assist five minutes later, picking the ball up on the right-hand side before firing a low cross towards Coutinho.

The Brazilian scored with an outrageous back-heel, only to be denied by the offside flag, much to the disappointment of the home crowd in attendance at the Allianz Arena.
