Flamengo goalkeeper Hugo was viciously attacked by several Corinthians players after his side’s crucial 2-1 victory in the second-leg of the Campeonato Brasileiro Under-20’s semi-final.
The clash ended 0-0 but Flamengo advanced after winning the first-leg 2-1. TalkSPORT report that Hugo made a key penalty save in the match and perhaps this is why he was attacked.
After the match ended, several Corinthians players threw sucker punches towards the goalkeeper – Raul Gustavo shocking attacked the stopper with a flying superman punch.

Final de jogo.
Flamengo 0x0 Corinthians no Sub-20.
Rubro-negro foi à decisão com o empate.
Após o jogo, o goleiro do Flamengo virou alvo dos corintianos.
Ainda não está claro o que ele fez pra despertar a ira dos alvinegros.
Levou soco gigante!
