Slavia Prague Delegates Burst Into Laughter After Being Drawn In Champions League Group Of Death
The 2019/20 Champions League 'group of death' was born on Thursday night when Czech first division side Slavia Prague were given the unenviable task of trying to progress in Group F.
It was revealed that Jindřich Trpišovský's side will come up against La Liga champions Barcelona, Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund and Serie A's Inter Milan in the coming months.
An outcome that gave the world a priceless reaction from three members of the crowd.
Cameras quickly panned to the club's representatives after Champions League winning midfielder Wesley Sneijder held up Prague's name.
They could only sit and laugh at the unfolding events, as the realisation of facing three of the biggest clubs in Europe soon hit them like a ton of bricks.
Plenty of people picked up on their hilarious reaction. "Siri, show me the definition of "if you don't laugh, you'll cry"
