It was far from a quiet night at the library inside a heated Estádio do Dragão on Tuesday night.
Atletico forward Yannick Carrasco was sent off in the 67th minute for lashing out and moments later, Angel Correa and Otavio were handed yellow cards for unsportsmanlike conduct. Then this happened...
If Porto are going out, Pepe is not going quietly.

As you can see in the footage above, former Real Madrid defender Pepe decided to walk into a group of Atletico players and scream in the face of Mario Hermoso before picking up a yellow card for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Three minutes later, Porto's Wendell received his marching orders; a moment that sparked a huge 42-man brawl.
Porto :vs: Atletico was WILD!
