RB Leipzig trolled for hype video ahead of Champions League clash against Besiktas

RB Leipzig put out a tweet ahead of their Champions League clash with Besiktas but it wasn't received well

Travelling to Turkey for a Champions League game can be an intimidating experience.

So you can’t blame RB Leipzig for trying to get their players and fans hyped up ahead of their Group G clash with Besiktas.

Unfortunately the results were about as intimidating as a toothless crocodile.

Danish striker Yussuf Poulsen won’t be given Liam Neeson any sleepless nights about his role in Taken 4.

But there was some context to the video.

Besiktas released a series of similarly bizarre videos on Twitter during the summer transfer window.

So while it might seem strange on the surface, Leipzig are actually engaging in a lovely bit of trolling ahead of the big game.

It’s unlikely to have much of an impact when the game kicks off though.

Leipzig will only bring around 250 to the Vodafone Arena, according to Welt.

We can hear Ricardo Quaresma and Ryan Babel shaking in their boots from here.
