CSKA Moscow played their Champions League match vs. Bayern Munich behind closed doors on Tuesday as part of the sanctions handed down by UEFA for CSKA fans’ racist behavior last season.

Tobias Schweinsteiger, a Bayern Munich reserve player and older brother of Bastian also attended, tweeting “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
