Extr@times

36 players sent off.........

Paraguayan junior match chaos.....

Both teams including subs and officials (36 in all) were sent off following a mass brawl in a recent game.

The match between Teniente Farina & Libertad, on 20 October, descended into chaos just before the final whistle after referee Nestor Guillen sent off a player from each side.
Players refused to leave the pitch, resulting in a mass brawl involving both teams and all the substitutes on the touchline. As seems standard in these affairs, a flying kick is probably the stand out moment.
The match officials fled to the dressing room to get away from the angry teams and issued all the red cards from this relative safety.
