FC Koln have officially arrived in England’s capital… and they haven’t done so quietly.
Yes, the Bundesliga side are set to raise the curtain on their Europa League campaign against Arsenal this evening.
And while they may struggle to match the Gunners’ intensity on the pitch, it looks like the FC Koln supporters could produce all the audio that is required for the occasion.
Despite failing to pick up any points in their first three domestic fixtures against Borussia Monchengladbach, Augsburg and Hamburg, around 20,000 FC Koln fans have made the trip to north London.
Most of whom could be seen in this video filmed by @EmanDaGoonn:

Arsenal are expected to rest several key players tonight, including Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Alexandre Lacazette, with this weekend’s Premier League match against Chelsea in mind.
However, Arsene Wenger may be doing so at his own peril.
Especially considering FC Koln picked up victories against Schalke, Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund last season.
