Soccer matches can get pretty intense just like any sport where players tempers reach levels of rage. However, in this match things went way too far over the weekend when one player attacked another player with a ‘razor’ during the match.

The clash happened during a 1-1 tie between Amed SK and Sakaryaspor in the Turkish 3rd division. According to report in the Mirror:
The bloody clash happened during a 1-1 draw between bitter rivals Amed SK and Sakaryaspor in the Turkish third division and saw one player slashed across his neck by an opposing number.
The first attempt was during the pre-match handshake when he allegedly took a swipe at the player, and then again during the game itself when he reportedly targeted Yazgan’s neck, leaving bloodied slash marks.
The 26-year-old player shared a photo to his Instagram page, showing the aftermath of the alleged attack.
The caption translated to say:
The caption to the picture said: “These football players who put [sic] the field, TFF, I hope you’ll see them.”
Sakaryaspor released a statement today which claimed a brawl broke out in the tunnel prior to the match and that Calar attacked the team’s captain during the game, as well as teammate Dilaver Guclu’nun.
This isn’t the first time these two teams have had beef. Last October, Kurdistan 24 reported:
That prior to a previous game between the clubs, Amed SK’s dressing room was stormed by a ‘mob of rival supporters’.
Yikes and we thought things get crazy here.
