We all love watching football matches right on our televisions, we clap and laugh aloud when our favorite team scores.



I do agree with you all that football is a very competitive venture, but in some cases, the game can become very brutal and dangerous to watch. 


Today, I am going to walk you through the 4 most brutal and dangerous matches ever in football history. Below is a short-list of such football matches; 

1. Portugal and Netherlands, Battle of Nuremberg (2006)

This match is considered as the worst World Cup spectacles to be witnessed in the past 30 years. Netherlands' last-16 clash with Portugal is undoubtedly the most distasteful match to watch in the competition's history - though the match was not in any way brutal, but the continuous giving of cards make the game to be very odd. 

16 yellow cards and  4 red cards were given before the halting of the match, this is because of too many fouls that were encountered in the game. 


2. Sheffield United Vs West Bromwich Albion, Battle of Bramall Lane (2002)

This match between Sheffield United Vs West Bromwich in First Division of English Football League is actually a battle between the two English teams. The game was going on smoothly until Scott Dobie and Derek McInnes scored goals that put the Baggies in 2-0 lead. The then Sheffield keeper, Simon Tracey, was sent off from the field in the ninth minute. Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock made two changes after the second goal was scored, but the two subs were sent off the pitch a few moments later. Dobie made it 3-0 with 13 minutes remaining, before the real fight began. The referee has no other alternative than to end the match when six United men were taken down. Sheffield United was fined £10,000 for violent conduct.


3. Chelsea Vs Leeds United, 1970 FA Cup final

 Nothing Bad happened in this match if not for the condition that the field was left when the match ended. Chelsea and Leeds United engaged in a very tough competition, and the field was left in such a rotten condition afterwards. The two teams were honored for their determination in such a tough match - though Chelsea later claimed the trophy, their first ever FA Cup win with 2-1 scoreline in their replay after 2-2 draw. 


4. Glasgow Celtic Vs Argentina Racing Club, Battle of Montevideo (1967)

The now defunct Intercontinental Cup is played amongst winners of the European Cup and Copa Libertadores, who face each other in a two-legged match every year.

The most famous edition of the competition came in 1967 when Glasgow Celtic faced Racing Club from Argentina. The first tie of the match ended in a very tough 1-0 with many cynical fouling and spitting. The second tie was also very tough, but the Argentine club won the tie 1-0 in the end. Four Celtic players and two Racing players were sent off before the referee blew the final whistle.
