Grêmio is one of the more recognizable clubs in Brazilian football, and at the moment, the Porto Alegre-based club is facing the realization of relegation.
The idea of seeing their team, which is in 19th place with 26 points and 11 matches left, in the Brasileirão Série B isn’t sitting well with supporters.
As a result, a group of fans went after the monitor when the Video Assistant Referee overturned a goal that would allow Grêmio to tie the match against Palmeiras and earn a point. Supporters were also fighting with stewards until police could finally get control of the situation.
Grêmio would fall 3-1 to Palmeiras and now sit seven points from safety and if the club can’t find a way out of this situation, this might be the beginning of more supporter violence.
