Santos fans invade pitch to confront Corinthians players following cup tie

Santos fans invaded the pitch and tried to confront Corinthians players following their Brazilian Cup last-16 tie at the Vila Belmiro stadium on Wednesday.

Santos defeated Corinthians 1-0 but were still knocked out of the competition 4-1 on aggregate.

The home fans were angry at full-time – and some invaded the pitch, running towards the visiting team’s players.

One Santos fan was filmed trying to kick Corinthians goalkeeper Cassio. The goalkeeper managed to push him back before stewards intervened.

Players from both sides sprinted off the pitch and down the tunnel as cops and stewards tried to catch the fans on the pitch.

Eight Santos fans were arrested.
