Players of Tiro Federal were attacked by fans of the home team, Bella Vista, and after initially fighting back to try and protect themselves from the baying mob the only way they could secure safety was climbing through a hole cut in a metal fence by their own supporters in the away section.

Police tried to protect the players but the home fans chased them off the pitch as local media reports that they escaped the stadium later on among the away fans.
