Games between archrivals Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are usually tense, but on Sunday both sides needed to win in order to remain in the race for Turkey's Superleague title.
With just minutes left in the game, Fenerbahce's Diego Lugano headbutted Galatasaray's Emre Asik from behind, touching off a fracas that involved most players on the field.
Four players -two from each team - were red-carded for their involvement in the fighting.
The two sides' fans were also in combative mood, dismantling seats and trying to hurl them at each other.
