Misbehaving fans cost Bayern

FC Bayern München have been fined by the German Football Association (DFB) for incidents involving their fans in the Bundesliga clash at Hertha Berlin last season.

Pep Guardiola's side ran out 2-0 victors at the Olympiastadion on April 30 on their way to clinching a record fourth successive domestic title.

But kick-off had to be delayed after Bayern supporters set off flares, which are not permitted at stadiums in Germany, while 27 arrests were made after the match following clashes with police and stewards.

The DFB announced on Tuesday that the Bavarian giants would pay a €45,000 fine for "two incidents of unsporting behaviour of their supporters" in Berlin.

Meanwhile, the fixtures for the new season were announced on Wednesday, which sees Carlo Ancelotti begin his reign at the Allianz Arena with the visit of SV Werder Bremen on August 26.

The first Der Klassiker match is set for mid-November when Ancelotti's side take on arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park.
