Derby matches in Football are a sight to see. The historical rivals, be it a top tier league or in a low ranking country, put up the most extravagant tifos to prove their superiority over their sworn enemies. The famous ‘Casablanca Derby’ between Raja Club Athletic and Wydad Athletic Club is a heated one, and the latter took it to the next level by bringing in a red-hot-fire-breathing Dragon!
Not a real dragon, of course. Yesterday’s Arab Champions Club round of 16 first leg face off between the clubs at the Stade Mohammed V ended in a 1-1 draw. Just into the half time, Wydad fans displayed a huge fire breathing red dragon taking a walk in the stands with holding the tournament trophy.
A clip of the gigantic tifo was uploaded by Sports + on their Facebook page. Check it out below-
