Galatasaray, the Turkish soccer giants, remain one of the go-to sites in world soccer for incredible crowd atmosphere. The Istanbul-based club didn’t disappoint prior to kickoff of today’s Champions League Group Stage match with Real Madrid, unfurling a massive two-tier tifo.
The tifo depicted lions — the club’s nickname — chasing Andrea Pirlo and Cristiano Ronaldo. There’s also a cartoon Dirk Kuyt in a suit of armor, which is one of the best things you will ever see.
Tifos like this put your awkward sign that spells out “ESPN” to shame.
That said, it hasn’t helped the club itself as the Turks trail Real 1-0 at halftime thanks to a goal from Isco.
