Interesting evening for Bayern Munich tonight where David Alaba hit an absolute belter from 35 yards out and a pitch invader slapped Franck Ribery during the 3-1 win at Hamburg in the DFB Pokal.

Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring in the 7th minute before Alaba unleashed a long-range missile just before half-time that Hamburg keeper Jaroslav Drobny couldn’t handle.

Time minutes after the break, Ribery marked his first start since returning from injury with a goal after his deflected strike found the back of the net. Pierre-Michel Lasogga got one back for Hamburg before the match looked to be coming to a close and the pitch invader arrived.

Bounding his way across the pitch, the idiot slapped Ribery with his scarf before giving the Frenchman double middle fingers. Ribery was incensed and looked ready to tear the invader inside out before security, players and the referee stepped in.

Never a dull moment in Germany.
