Newell’s Old Boys v Villa Mitre match called off due to fan trouble

A Copa Argentina match between Newell’s Old Boys and Villa Mitre was abandoned in extra-time on Sunday because of fan trouble.

With Villa Mitre leading 2-1, the referee was forced to stop play after Newell’s Old Boys fans started throwing objects – including two toilet cisterns – onto the pitch.

They also clashed with police, leaving three cops injured.

Eventually the referee decided to call the game off and Villa Mitre were awarded the victory.
