Today David will slain Goliath



I mean it metaphorically of course. I hope it will be a fair game on the pitch and on the streets of Berlin alike.

Inanin Cocuklar, Cocuklar inanin,
Güzel günler görecegiz, günesli günler,
Almanyayi Baselde devirecegiz,
Sampiyonluk sarkilari söyleyecegiz*!

*This is a Besiktas chant which is derived from the great Turkish Poet Nazim Hikmet. My humble translation goes like:

Believe in it Boys, believe in it,
We will see beautiful days, sunny days,
We will knock out Gemany in Basel,
We will sing songs of championship!
