Supporters ripped seats out and threw them on pitch while scores were injured in violence at Cairo International Stadium
EGYPTIAN giants Zamalek suffered a shock group stage elimination in the African Champions League.
And fans reacted by ripping seats out of the stadium and causing a riot which resembled a war zone after full-time.
Scores were injured in the violence, but it is not yet known exactly how many.
Libyan minnows Al-Ahli Tripoli secured the 2-2 draw which saw them qualify from Group B ahead of the five-time winners.
Zamalek had looked to be going through after taking the lead in the 13th minute.
However, the home side went down to ten men after Mahmoud Hamdi El Wensh was sent off for conceding a penalty in first-half stoppage time.
Mohamed Al Ganodi equalised for Al-Ahli Tripoli from the spot before Vianney Madibe put them ahead with 20 minutes remaining.
Zamalek set up a nervy finale when Moruf Yusuf equalised, but it wasn’t enough.
As the away side celebrated their famous victory, home fans threw flares, homemade bombs and various other objects onto the field as police attempted to maintain order.
They tore seats out of the stadium and launched them onto the pitch.
Several images emerged of injured fans after the violence had passed.
Zamalek are one of the most successful side in African football history.
They have been continental champions more often than anyone else in the 20th Century.
While their Cairo International Stadium holds up to 75,000 fans.
They had been among the favourites for the CAF Champions League, having reached the final last season.
However, Zamalek go home after a poor campaign.
After winning the first match, they picked up just three more points and last week suffered a shock defeat against Zimbabwean minnows CAPS United.
Algerian side USM Alger qualified alongside Al-Ahli Tripoli.
