It’s the spookiest time of the year!

Halloween is right around the corner and FC Magdeburg has apparently begun celebrating a week early ahead of their DFB-Pokal match with Borussia Dortmund.

The Magdeburg fans displayed one of the best tifos we’ve seen in all of German football this season, complete with pyrotechnics and everything.

Have a look for yourself.

If that doesn’t spook you just a little bit, then I don’t know what will.

Blue and white stripes surround a spooky face with fire for eyes and a creepy smile. The banner along the bottom reads: You think it's over yet the games have only begun.

The smoke from the tifo definitely created an unfriendly atmosphere to play for visiting Dortmund. It didn’t seem to affect Alexander Isak, though, as the teenager scored his first senior goal for Dortmund.

Well done, Magdeburg. Truly proof that the gems of German football are not all located in the top tier.
