Slavia Prague delegates comical reaction to drawing the Champions League group of death leaves everyone in splits on social media.
The UEFA Champions League draw is done and dusted. Clubs and their supporters are now aware of who they’ll be facing come September 17th and 18th. However, the draw has been somewhat of a bitter pill for some who have found it a little hard to swallow.
Barcelona from Pot 1 were earlier drawn into group F. The 5-time winners were then joined by Dortmund who have previously reached the final of the prestigious tournament before. To make matters worse, Inter Milan, 3-time Champions League winners, were added with them.

Not many would have liked to join this illustrious trio but someone had to. Wesley Sneijder pulled out a ball with the Slavia Prague’s name on it before Petr Cech pulled up the ball with group F written on it. The Czech club have qualified for the Champions League for the first time since the 2007-08 season and will now have to face 3 titans.
Many would weep at the thought of facing Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Barcelona. However, Slavia Prague’s delegates decided to giggle as they tried to control their laughter.
Sometimes, all you can do is laugh 😂

A moment so hilarious that even Slavia’s English account decided to poke fun at their Vice Chairman of the board.
We have been in @ChampionsLeague for less than 24 hours and our Vice Chairman of the Board already became meme.

The draw may mean that once the group stage is done, the team may not even qualify for the Europa through a 3rd place finish. However, facing big teams as such will give them a lot of exposure, growth and mat even help them financially with tourists flocking to their city to view the match. Especially Barcelona and more specifically Lionel Messi fans.
