The protests come following the Bundesliga, the top league in Germany, introducing Monday night games into the league's schedule.

Fans left the terraces and occupied the inner area to protest before kickoff, while others displayed banners blasting the DFB, including "Football-mafia DFB".

Fans resumed their whistle-protest once the celebrations died down. The game will be remembered for the charged atmosphere as the home fans protest against the German soccer federation for staging games on a Monday night.

Before the second half, hundreds of tennis balls were thrown onto the pitch and toilet rolls were hurled at the goals, causing a further delay.

"As long as they have a few more euros in their pockets, they couldn't care less how many days' holiday we need to take to attend an away game", said a statement from the fans.

Arsenal will fight for top four despite Europa League — Henrikh Mkhitaryan
"But ideally, we want to come back to the Champions League through the Premier League .", said the Frenchmen. With how terrible Arsenal were in the first half, it's hard to say anybody had a good game for the Gunners.

In the meantime, Keita remains a Leipzig player and is trying to help the Bundesliga side earn a Champions League spot for next season.

Timothy Chandler and Kevin-Prince Boateng cancelled out Jean-Kevin Augustin's early strike as Frankfurt overtook Leipzig to go third, and deny the visitors the chance to reclaim second.

Frankfurt took the lead after 26 minutes when the hosts capitalised on a slack header from Will Orban for Ante Rebic to get behind the RB Leipzig defence before cutting back for Kevin-Prince Boateng to fire home.

Leipzig were awarded a penalty four minutes later after Rebic fouled Marcel Sabitzer but the referee changed his mind after a VAR review as Sabitzer had been offside.

On the stroke of half-time, Keita caught Makoto Hasebe with a late tackle and the Japan global was not happy with the challenge.
