Brentford and Brighton went into halftime with the Bees leading the match 1-0 but the first 45 minutes also saw a clash between the two side’s managers.
The match has seen a few heated moments so far, mostly involving Ivan Toney and Joel Veltman, and it was the latter that was involved in the incident that led to a small brawl.
The defender had a tussle with Frank on the sideline as he went to retrieve the ball for a throw-in and that prompted Brighton’s coach De Zerbi to leap to his player’s defence.
The Italian coach got into the face of Frank and that sparked a small brawl but it was all good in the end as the two coaches shook hands and moved on.
Thomas Frank x De Zerbi ?
