Football match descends into huge 22-man brawl making Tuchel and Conte look like lightweights
Thomas Tuchel versus Antonio Conte was feisty, just wait until you see what happened in Paraguay last night.Hours after the handbags between Chelsea and Tottenham, the Paraguayan Superclasico between Olimpia and Cerro Porteno descended into total chaos with an almighty brawl breaking out between the two sides.It all kicked off when Cerro Porteno's Federico Carrizo hit opponent Fernando Cardozo with a stiff uppercut-like forearm to the face after being cynically dragged off the ball. Olimpia captain Richard Ortiz then rushes over and begins grappling with Carrizo, before players and substitutes from both sides pile in to join the mayhem.READ MORE: Tuchel and Conte 'set for WrestleMania' joke fans in Rock and Austin WWE homagePolice were eventually roped in to break everything up, but not before a couple of red cards were handed out - one to instigator Carrizo and the other to Olimpia's Alejandro Silva.The bedlam got a fair bit of attention on social media, especially in light of the scuffle between Tuchel and Conte."Premier League fans: What could possibly be worse than the fights we saw at Chelsea-Tottenham today?
