In what could be the most unbelievable soccer statistic of the year, eight players were ejected from a lower level Brazilian soccer match over the weekend.
Both Potiguar and Baraunas finished the derby match with just seven players each as Potiguar ultimately prevailed 2-1.

The fighting was extreme. Players not only threw punches but also injured each other with flying kicks and two-footed stomps.
