Five red cards! Argentinian game descends into mass violence

I'm not sure what is going on in Argentina at the moment but someone needs to get down there to bloody well find out.

Last week former Arsenal man Nelson Vivas resigned as manager of Quilmes after clocking a fan in the chops.

Then an almighty scrap broke out at the end of Boca Junior dramatic draw against Godoy Cruz on Monday.

However that was mere handbags compared to this huge punch-up in Arsenal's game against Gimnasia La Plata which resulted in no less than five players being sent off.

Details are sketchy but it appears as though a brawl was sparked by a Gimnasia La Plata playing on despite Arsenal calling for the game to be stopped because the ball was flat.

Arsenal players took exception to that, then all hell broke loose as two of their players and three Gimnasia La Plata's players were sent off for their part in the carnage as the game ticked over into 10 minutes added on.

Check it out in the crazy video above.
