It was soon 6-0 to the Brazilians and the situation deteriorated badly as angry Pirates fans invaded the pitch in an attempt to stop Pitso Mosimane's men from scoring more goals. 

The match was suspended in the 81st minute, but later resumed at 82nd minute after consulations with match commiossioner. It ended 6-0 in favour of the Tshwane giants.   

The behaviour of some of Bucs fans was condemned by several high profile figures, including footballers and PSL clubs.
