DTotD: Brazilian fans engage in an awkward yet vicious fight

Dirty Tackle

There was a kick fight after Goias' 2-0 Copa do Brazil win over Atletico Mineiro, but instead of happening on the pitch between people who actually took part in the competition, it happened in the empty stands between mostly out of shape people.

The two sets of fans went at it with no interference from police, which allowed them to launch vicious kick attacks against each other. With exception to a few ungraceful punches, it seems that in Brazil the rules against using your hands extend to fan brawls in the stands too.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
