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.

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.
