Disgruntled Bayern Munich supporters who travelled to Belgium for Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Anderlecht hurled fake money onto the pitch in protest of soaring ticket prices.

Bayern fans were charged €100 per stub for the away fixture, although the club reportedly eased the blow by covering 30 percent of the cost.

The match – which the Bavarian side won 2-1 thanks to goals from Robert Lewandowski and Corentin Tolisso – was suspended for a few minutes as officials picked up the fake bills.

The protest began last weekend at the Allianz Arena, where fans unfurled a banner of UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin and an Anderlecht board member squeezing cash out of a Bayern supporter.

A similar demonstration took place in October 2015 at Emirates Stadium:
