A number of Galatasaray supporters tried to dig their way into a training base in Germany ahead of their team's Champions League victory over Schalke 04.

The group of fans are thought to have attempted to tunnel into the Veltins-Arena on Monday evening in a bid to see their favourite players train ahead of their 4-3 aggregate victory.

"It's true, after their final training session, our Turkish friends were caught trying to dig a way into the stadium through the frozen ground," the Daily Mail quotes Schalke's director of sport Horst Heldt as saying. "The stewards prevented them from doing so."

Galatasaray clinched the quarter-finals spot on the same night that Barcelona made history by defeating AC Milan 4-0 at Camp Nou.
