Video Highlights: Thomas Müller scored a shross so great that you can't tell his intention

Was it a cross? Was it a shot? Who cares.

Thomas Müller is one of the best players in the world. Against Olympiacos, he scored one of the goals of the season, even if it was overshadowed on the day by Roma's Alessandro Florenzi. Was it a shot? Was it a cross? It was certainly a "shross"

"I saw Lewy heading on goal," Müller said. "I wasn't aiming to shoot. I got a bit lucky!"

Luck or not, Müller's ball in the 52nd minute found the back of the net. At the time, FC Bayern were completely dominating on the field with over 70% of possession, yet they were having problems in connecting for that final ball. Müller stepped up as he has done often this season and scored his seventh goal in six matches.

Müller converted a late penalty to give him his eight goal of the season, but he didn't want to take the penalty. He wanted Thiago to take the spot kick to reward the young Spaniard for his outstanding performance. However, Pep Guardiola overruled the decision and had Müller take the kick. "It's not a friendly. It's Champions League."

The goals put Müller at thirty total in his Champions League career, tying him with Kaka and Samuel Eto'o.
