Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has promised Arsenal fans they will pay a "good price" for tickets in November’s Champions League return in Bavaria.

Bayern fans protested at ticket prices for the opening five minutes of last night’s Champions League match in north London.

Banners in the away section declaring "£64 a ticket but without fans football is not worth a penny" were applauded by home supporters when the Bayern fans eventually took their seats. The £64 ticket price equates to $99.

After the match, Guardiola acknowledged that Gunners fans would not be overcharged when they head to Germany for the return match on November 4.

He told the post-match press conference: "I will speak with (Arsene) Wenger for next time to make it cheaper for our fans.

"We will take care of Arsenal fans in Munich with a good price. They can travel."

On the pitch, Arsenal won the contest 2-0, with goals from Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil keeping their hopes of qualification alive.
