Video: Borussia Dortmund fans reveal brilliant 3D banner before Champions League tie

The Bundesliga has been the envy of European football for some time now thanks to their low ticket prices and fan friendly-stadia.

Borussia Dortmund seem to embody that spirit more than anyone else with their dirt-cheap season tickets and iconic 'yellow wall' single-tier stand; home to 25,000 fans on any given matchday.

Seemingly not content with being admired by most football fans across the continent, the Dortmund fans have also taken it upon themselves to show how brilliantly creative they can be.

For most Bundesliga games, the Yellow Wall is barely visible under a canopy of waving flags and scarves, while for special occasions they usually take things to the next level by holding up yellow signs to form the image of their club logo.

Now though, they have truly outdone themselves.

Ahead of their Champions League quarter-final against Malaga last night the Dortmund fans came up with a truly spectacular way of greeting both teams as they walked onto the pitch.

Supporters on the Yellow Wall held up their yellow signs as usual, only for some to drop their placards to reveal the outline of the Champions League trophy - before a large 3D figure looking through binoculars emerged at the front of the stand.

A sign underneath read: Auf Den Spuren Des Verlorenen Henkelpotts - On The Trail Of The Lost Cup, a reference to the fact they haven't won the Champions League in 16 years.

To make it all even better for the home support at the Westfalenstadion, Dortmund then went on to claim a thrilling last-gasp 3-2 win over Malaga to put them through to the semi-finals.

Check out the truly brilliant video below and see the amazing pictures here.
