In the aftermath of Bayern Munich's shock Champions League exit, a 'drunk' FC Koln supporter somehow managed to make his way into the Allianz Arena and well, it made for entertaining viewing.

Julian Nagelsmann's side were knocked out of Europe's elite competition by underdogs Villarreal on Tuesday night after a late goal from Samuel Chukwueze sealed an entertaining 2-1 aggregrate win for Unai Emery's side.

It was an evening full of drama and after the full-time whistle, the action didn't slow down when a supposedly intoxicated Koln fan hobbled onto the empty pitch, moments after going over on his ankle. Check out the bizarre scene below.

According to ESPN reporter Archie Rhind-Tutt, who posted footage of the hilarious incident on Twitter, the happy Koln fan was spotted limping out the stadium later on, whilst singing Anthony Modeste's name.

FC Koln's Twitter account soon got involved in the conversation. "We thought we'd seen that celebration before," they said.

"For the sake of his head and his ankle, we hope he doesn't have work this morning. [Please don't pitch invade].

In other [more boring news], it was a Champions League night to remember for the Yellow Submarine, who defied the odds to knock six-time European champions Bayern out of the competition.

Despite the La Liga side having just two shots on target across both legs, Villarreal managed to secure a place in the semi-final with a gutsy performance.

They will now play either Liverpool or Benfica after their latest European triumph. If you haven't seen it yet, here is the moment when Chukwueze sent the Spanish team through.

In another wonderful moment from the night, Villarreal pulled off a genius offside trap to stop a potentially dangerous free-kick.

Joshua Kimmich floated in a ball to the back post but to his surprise, every single man wearing Yellow pushed forward, leaving at least seven Bayern players in an offside position.

You can see that clip below.
