That German club fans are the best in Europe isn’t news, but 15,000 travelling for a Europa League game is pretty special.
And not just travelling, but completely taking the venue over as a matter of course
That’s what the 12,000 Eintracht Frankfurt’s fans who managed to get in at Bordeaux did tonight, with a spectacular show of pyrotechnics in the away end, leaving the rest Bordeaux’s stadium and the home support looking rather insipid and morose.
In so doing they also beat the away fan Europa League record.
