A BRAZILIAN match was called off after the referee showed an incredible NINE red cards in a fiery derby.

Vitoria's clash with Bahia saw five players sent off following a mass-brawl.

Punches were thrown in the melee and five players were sent off

And as tempers continue to flare, another four were sent for an early bath as the referee had no choice but to abandon the match with 11 minutes remaining.

Bruno Bispo was the guilty party as he became the fifth Vitoria player to walk, with teams needing at least seven players on the field to continue.

Denilson opened the scoring for the hosts in their Bahia state championship clash but Vinicius netted a penalty equaliser at the start of the second half.

He danced in front of the home supporters, sparking a melee as punches came in from both sets of players.

The match was abandoned as not enough players were left on the field

Vitoria were down to nine and Bahia eight when a player from each team was sent off as violence spread to the stands.

The hosts then lost another player leaving both sides with seven before Bispo booted the ball away in frustration and picked up a second yellow that killed off the game.

Football chiefs must now decide how to punish both clubs for the shocking scenes.
