Hats off to Dinamo
Dinamo Bucharest fans pulled off an unbelievably brilliant prank on their rivals Steaua Bucharest during tonight’s Champions League qualifier against Manchester City.
The Steaua fans unveiled a tifo ahead of kick-off in a bid to inspire their players (who incidentally went on to lose 5-0.)
Fans taking part in a tifo aren’t to know what it actually says but this one read “Doar Dinamo Bucuresti“, which translates as “Only Dinamo Bucharest“.
Huge mosaic in the crowd saying Dinamo Bucharest. Don't know why. Act of sabotage by rival fans?

How they did it
Dinamo fans, posing as professionals, called up Steaua and offered their services to help prepare a tifo ahead of their Champions League first leg knockout match.
They were clearly given complete responsibility by the Steaua board and managed to get the Steaua fans to hold a tifo in homage to Dinamo.
To top it off, Steaua were then humiliated by Sergio Aguero & co on the pitch, losing 5-0 in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier.
