Borussia Dortmund’s yellow wall amazes football fans on special european night

Borussia Dortmund's yellow wall has been regarded as one of the best and most fearsome stands in European football since it was expanded in the late 1990s. It has a capacity of 25,000 and is the largest single-tiered grandstand in the whole of Europe.

It isn't the sheer size of the stand that has made it famous, however, but rather the fans who stand within it each and every week. It is where Dortmund's most passionate fans reside and the atmosphere they create on a weekly basis is a joy to behold.

Fans from across Europe were exposed to the beauty of Borussia Dortmund's yellow wall on Wednesday night when the German side faced PSG in the Champions League semi-finals first leg. The home side were brilliant on the night and will feel they should have won by more than 1-0 but they do still take a lead with them to Paris next week.

One factor that PSG struggled to deal with on the night was the atmosphere inside Signal Iduna Park. The yellow wall were at their brilliant best from the first minute with all 25,000 fans inside the stand seemingly wearing yellow in unison. Flags were waved, songs were sung and they more than helped Dortmund get over the line on the night.

Jamie Carragher enjoys night in Borussia Dortmund's yellow wall

As part of CBS' coverage of the clash between Borussia Dortmund and PSG, Jamie Carragher was placed inside the yellow wall for the evening. The former Liverpool defender fully embraced the occasion, donning a Dortmund scarf to fit in, drinking German beer and joining in with the songs.

Carragher knows a thing or two about an imperious stand singing you'll never walk alone considering his Liverpool past and he seemed to enjoy his night among the Borussia Dortmund fans.

After the match, Carragher tried to return to work by conducting a post-match interview with Jadon Sancho. However, the pundit was a little worse for wear after sinking eight pints throughout the evening. As it happened, the interview turned out to be hilarious all the same.
