There was a drama in a Brazilian derby that birth series of punches and blows between Vitoria and Bahia as 9 players – six from the Victoria – were sent off, forcing the derby to be abandoned with 11 minutes left on the clock.
Denilson breaks the deadlock for the home side following 33 minutes but Vinicius leveled with a penalty four minutes into the second half. He celebrated with a provocative dance in front the home fans, which prompted anger from Victoria players. Punches were exchanged between the two sides and five men were awarded red cards for their Joshua-Takam performances, three from Bahia and two from Vitoria.
Two more players, one from each side, were sent off three minutes after the first incident, as tempers frayed and inconvenience spread to the porches. With just 13 minutes left a fourth Vitoria player was sent off, inciting Bispo to kick the ball away and forced the official into granting him his second yellow and a match-ending red.
The score in the controversial derby was 1-1 when Bruno Bispo became the ninth player, and the fifth from Vitoria, to be awarded a red card.
However, since football requires at least seven players, the ref was forced to put an end to the controversial derby.
Brazil’s sporting court will decide what move to make over the indiscipline and the outcome.
