Lowly Portuguesa looked dead and buried at 2-0 down to high flying Gremio on Saturday night, with 20 minutes to go.

Portuguesa brought it back to 2-2 within 8 minutes and could well have bagged a crucial point in their battle for safety in the Campeonato Brasileiro.

It all came crashing down on 86 as the referee awarded a penalty to Gremio and the Portuguesa players got pretty mad about the placement of Kleber’s penalty.

Subsequently, Bruninho and Voldimiro were sent off with riot police making an appearance to calk everyone down.

Kleber scored to seal a 3-2 win and Portuguesa barely had enough players to launch another attack in the final minutes.
