On Sunday December 6, Coritiba and Fluminese met at the Estadi Couto Pereira to decide who would be relegated from the Brasileirão, Brazil’s equivalent of the Premier League. The game finished Coritiba 1- 1 Fluminese, so Coritiba went down and Fluminese didn’t.
Naturally, after the final whistle, Coritiba’s fans went completely mental and invaded the pitch, started on referees and referees assistants, set fire to stuff, got semi-naked and made the police look like numpties with toy batons. Excellently, the Fluminese players couldn’t give a shit and just carry on celebrating.
