The Mexican Clausura semi-final second leg between Morelia and Cruz Azul ended with some crazy violence.

With Morelia leading 3-0 in the 89th minute and 3-2 on aggregate, a Cruz Azul fan stormed onto the pitch and confronted his own team's players, sparking a free-for-all.

After several minutes of fighting had ended, the referee sent off visiting players Christian Giménez and Isaac Romo along with Morelia's Miguel Sabah.

But the brawling didn't stop there and there was another incident that will shock Mexican football.

At first it might seem as if Corona was holding hands with Morelia assistant coach Sergio Martin while they had a nice chat, but it soon becomes clear that there was nothing nice about it.

Corona first delivered a hard inside leg kick to Martin before blasting him in square in the face with a wicked headbutt.

The referee didn't see this happen since he was distracted by the other brawling players, but luckily the TV cameras did.

Corona is no stranger to disciplinary problems. Last year he was left out of Mexico's 2010 World Cup squad for hitting a person on a bar.
