Dortmund fans in huge anti-Leipzig protest

Fans of Borussia Dortmund held a massive protest against RB Leipzig during the game between the two teams on Saturday.

The Dortmund fans are big believers in what they call football’s traditions and are fiercely against the model represented by teams such as Leipzig – the team was brought and is bank-rolled by energy drink company Red Bull.

As such, they held a stadium wide protest at Signal-Iduna park with banners everywhere suggesting what is wrong with Leipzig, and what is right with Dortmund.

Even the club itself had a dig, changing their scoreboard to an old-fashioned look to emphasise their claim to ownership of the sport’s traditional values.

Dortmund fans also held a similar protest during the reverse fixture back in September, with fans staying away from the game in protest.

And despite Leipzig being the only serious contenders to Bayern Munich’s domination of the Bundesliga this season, Dortmund fans had the last laugh as a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal gave them a 1-0 win and moved Dortmund up to third in the standings, but still eight points behind their Red Bull nemesis.
