Brazilian derby abandoned as nine players are shown red cards

Vitoria's actions cost them a victory in the end, as Bahia is expected to be awarded a forfeit victory over its rival.

After a 15-minute interruption, the game resumed and, on 77 minutes, Vitoria's defensive midfielder Uillian Correia was sent off after being booked with a second yellow card, due to a foul he committed trying to stop a counter-attack from Bahia.

A mass brawl started after Vinicius equalised with a penalty for visitors Bahia to make the scoreline 1-1 in a Campeonato Baiano clash with Vitoria in Salvador.

The derby match in the Bahia state championship between Vitoria and Bahia was 1-1 when the final player, Bruno Bispo, was sent off, leaving the hosts Vitoria with six men on the pitch. Vitoria didn't have enough players to field a team as a result of red cards that came after a brawl.

At least two Bahia substitutes were also dismissed to take the tally of reds in the match to an astonishing nine, although some reports suggest that as many as 10 were handed their marching orders.

Vitoria goalkeeper Fernando Miguel did not like the celebrations and went after Vinicius to complain.

With teams requiring a minimum of seven players under Federation Internationale de Football Association rules, the referee was forced to call a premature halt to proceedings.
