Alianza Lima fans turn on each other in Copa Libertadores clash

Published Add your comment

Fans of Peruvian club Alianza Lima turned on each other after crashing out of the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday, according to a shocking Daily Mail story.

Alianza, the oldest side in the Peruvian First Division, could only manage a goalless draw with Argentina's Huracan in the second leg of South America's Champions League equivalent which sent them out of the competition 4 - 0 on aggregate.

The game, played in Buenos Aries, was marred by chaotic scenes of crowd trouble as Alianza supporters clashed with each other, using belts and shoes as weapons while young children were shielded from the violence.

Both teams slowed down the game in protest amongst the carnage which comes after awful scenes in the Africa Cup of Nations semi-final between Equatorial Guinea and Ghana.

Previous violence 

This is not the first time Alianza fans have resorted to violence as just week week they reportedly stormed the dressing room following the 4 -0 loss to Huracan , attacking their own team and wounding two leading players.

Christian Cueva and Victor Cedron were the players injured and they are both are considering leaving the club.

Managers and players may think the stick they get in England is harsh, spare of thought for our friends in Peru.
