A large section of Bayern Munich fans at the Emirates Stadium held a protest at the prices they had to pay for the Champions League group stage tie.
The fans skipped the first five minutes of the game, waiting outside as a banner among the empty seats expressed their outrage at the £64 cost for an away ticket.
"£64 a ticket, but without fans football is not worth a penny."

Arsenal fans, who pay between £1,014.00 and £2,013.00 for a season ticket, seemed suitably impressed at the stand being taken.

Although some were concerned that the protest wasn’t value for money…
Great stuff from the Bayern fans. "We'll protest the high ticket prices by still buying them but just going in late."

But I make it those Bayern fans have missed about £3.55 worth of football— Matt Dickinson (@DickinsonTimes) October 20, 2015
Hopefully Bayern give Arsenal fans a good deal when they travel to the Allianz Arena in a fortnight’s time.
