The Battle Of Porto Alegre

The Battle Of Porto Alegre

By Louis Smith.

The last match of the Copa Libertadores, before the coronavirus put the tournament to a halt, saw fierce rivals Grêmio and Internacional come together at the Arena do Grêmio.

It was a reminder of how football can be full of drama without any goals scored…


Internacional are red

Grêmio are blue

Instead of playing football

Let’s have a scrap… or two?


Gremio Interncaional Libertadores fight 1

Both sides were shown four red cards each when temperatures boiled over at Arena do Grêmio.

A night that Argentine referee Fernando Rapallini will never forget.
