Blimey: eight red cards in Brazilian derby between Potiguar and Baraunas

The lower leagues around the world can be entertaining for many reasons but particularly due to the odd brawl that tends to breakout. Players seem to lose control a lot more easily down there and it can make for fantastic added entertainment if they do.

It usually ends with a player or two being sent off, but not in Brazil it seems. During a lower league derby between Potiguar and Baraunas, a vicious fight broke out resulting in EIGHT players being sent off. That’s quite impressive but for all the wrong reasons.

The match eventually finished despite both teams being down to seven men, with Potiguar winning 2-1.

Have you ever seen a brawl like this before?
