Crowd trouble cuts Belgian league game short
Fans of the Belgian football league went a little too aggressive, throwing flares and seats onto the pitch and ending the game prematurely.
The Belgian league game between Standard Liege and Anderlecht was cut short Sunday about an hour in after fans would not stop throwing items onto the field.
The match's premature end came in at 57' when Anderlecht fans started throwing flares and seats from the stands into the pitch right after Standard winger Philip Zinckernagel scored his club's third goal of the game when Anderlecht had only scored once.
The game at Standard's stadium resumed about 15 minutes later, but the play only went on for a few more minutes before Anderlecht supporters started hurling items onto the pitch once again.

Anderlecht is one of the Belgian league's best clubs, winning the championship 34 times. However, luck does not seem to be on their side this season, going on their worst spree since 1930, losing eight games out of 14, and currently ranking as the 12th team in the standings.
