Riot police use tear gas to break up brutal fight between two sets of warring supporters at football match in Brazil
VIOLENCE erupted at a football match in Brazil as two sets of supporters clashed in sickening scenes of violence.
Riot police were called upon to separate the brawling fans, who finally dispersed when tear gas was thrown into the stands.
The altercation took place after Vila Nova’s 2-0 win over Goias in a restricted area of the Stadio Serra Dourada.
Fans punched and kicked one another and also threw objects before officers arrived at the scene with batons and riot shields.
While tear gas grenades exploded at the fighters’ feet, they rushed to safety and some were pulled up to the next tier.
But while some ran away, others continued fighting and a supporter can be seen laid on the floor motionless and getting kicked while he is defenseless on the ground.
Brazilian media are reporting that the fan who suffered head injuries went to hospital according to the fire department, but the health unit said there is no record of patient entry.
A complaint has been submitted after the lack of security in the restricted area of the stadium.
