>> Fans go wild, faint out of excitement at Soundfest
Although the game is scheduled to begin at 5:00pm, the fans spilled out of the streets on motorbikes, playing horns, burning flares, and clamoring to support their team from as early as 1:30pm.
But it did not stop there. They even drove through red lights and posed for photos, causing traffic congestion in some sections of the city center.
Below are several photos of the riot:
