This is the most bizarre thing you will see all weekend!

Holstein Kiel substitute Michael Eberwein conceded a penalty while warming up behind the goal during Friday’s match against VfL Bochum.
Silvère Ganvoula M’boussy flashed a shot wide for visitors Bochum during the first half of Friday’s 2. Bundesliga game at the Holstein-Stadion.
Great scenes from Bundesliga 2. Not sure I’ve ever seen a sub warming up give away a penalty. pic.twitter.com/QKhachtkcq

Eberwein then returned the ball before it had gone out of play, leading to a VAR check that resulted in a yellow card and a spot kick.
M’boussy scored from twelve yards to equalise in the 38th minute, but Holstein went on to win 2-1 through Janni Luca Serra’s second-half strike.
