AS PRE-MATCH rituals go, this one is hard to top…
Ahead of a recent friendly match, Turkish side Sivasspor killed a live lamb on the pitch for good luck.
After slitting the animal’s throat, players then smeared the blood over their boots before taking to the field against Serbian side FK Red Belgrade.
The Turkish team went on to win the match 4-1.
