Fenerbahce Fans Set Off Flares And Firecrackers Outside Arsenal’s Hotel [VIDEO]

champions league Fenerbahce Fans Set Off Flares And Firecrackers Outside Arsenals Hotel [VIDEO]

The Arsenal team may not have gotten a lot of sleep last night after Fenerbahce supporters set off flares and firecrackers outside their hotel in Istanbul on the eve of the first leg of their UEFA Champions League play-off match.

Arsenal faces Fenerbahce today in a match where there’s already a lot of pressure on Arsene Wenger to get a result. Whether or not his team will have been impacted by the flares and firecrackers, we’ll have to wait and see until the game later today. But it’s poor form by the Fenerbahce supporters who are looking for any advantage to help out their club.

For viewers in the United States, today’s match between Fenerbahce and Arsenal will be shown live on FOX Sports 1 and FOXSoccer2Go at 2:45pm ET.
