At the conclusion of Mumbai City's Indian Super League semifinal tie with Atletico de Kolkata, which saw Atletico advance on aggregate, a scuffle broke out between the two sides. Postmatch scuffles are common enough in soccer, but on Tuesday one Mumbai City player got a bit out of hand. 

When the final whistle blows, the players come together for a customary shoving match. Thiago Cunha enters the picture and appears to throw a punch at an Atletico player. As he runs away, Cunha executes a quasi–roundhouse kick while trying to escape a horde of angry players, and then puts his fists up like he's ready to take on the entire squad. 

The fireworks start around the 0:15 mark.

Fun fact: Diego Forlan is also a forward for Mumbai City, though he didn't play on Tuesday because he was sent off from the first leg with two yellow cards.

The Indian Super League sounds fun.
