Bayern Munich fans pelted Neymar with fake €500 bank notes during their Champions League clash with PSG on Tuesday night.

The Brazilian has already been pelted with baguettes during PSG's draw with Marseille earlier this season.

But Bayern fans, went to new lengths, customising and printing notes with Neymar's face on them ahead of the Allianz Arena clash.

And when the £200million superstar went to take a corner in the 34th minute, a stack of notes headed in his direction, fluttering to the ground after being hurled from the stand.

Neymar, 25, looked ruefully at the notes, before clearing them out of his way and taking the set piece.

Goals from Robert Lewandowski and Corentin Tolisso (2) handed Bayern a 3-1 win over PSG, who couldn't extend their 100 percent record in Europe this term.

Kylian Mbappe's record-breaking 10th Champions League goal was little more than a consolation for Unai Emery's men.

Bayern fans also unveiled banners taking aim at UEFA. One read: "Throwing fake money is charged, but exploiting our football is fine?"

Another declared: "UEFA/RSCA [Anderlecht] return the money. You've ripped us off!"

UEFA have recently charged the Bundesliga champions for a fan protest, after Bayern fans rebelled against the €100 ticket prices charged for the clash with Anderlecht in Belgium last month.

Those charges led to Bayern fans throwing fake money on the pitch at the Constant Vanden Stock and holding up banners reading "Is your gr€€d now finally satisfi€d? 100€?"

UEFA charged Bayern over an "illicit banner" and the "throwing of objects".That case is set to be heard by UEFA's ethics and disciplinary on Thursday, with Bayern likely to be fined.

The defeat was PSG's second in four days, having also fallen 2-1 against Strasbourg on Saturday.
