Ave, Ucraina, morituri te salutant. Azov.

Fans of Dnipro at semifinal match of the Europa League, "Dnipro" - "Napoli" effectively supported their team. A banner with the words in Latin "Ave, Ucraina, morituri te salutant" (Glory to Ukraine going to die salute you) next coat of arms of regiment Azov was placed on one of the banner.
The original phrase sounds like "Ave, Caesar, morituri te salutant" (Glory, Caesar, going to die salute you) - according to the Roman historian Gaius Suetonius Tranquillo under Emperor Claudius - in similar words gladiators welcomed Caesar on the way to the gladiator's arena.
"Dnipro" - "Napoli" 1-0
