Schalke fans protest Europa League ticket prices in Spain.

While Milan fans already won for most visually wonderful display of the week, Schalke fans take the award for best expression of displeasure.

Schalke played Athletic Bilbao at the Veltins Arena for the first leg of its Europa League quarterfinal after it had been announced that tickets for the second leg in Bilbao, Spain would cost Schalke fans €90 per ticket. So the German fans unfurled banners during the match that read (in Spanish): "€90 per ticket = one euro per minute? Football is not phone sex!"

Athletic went on to win 4-2, which means any Schalke fans who pay such a high price to attend the second leg might be better off calling an S&M line.
