Charleroi keeper Rudy Riou was injured by a firecracker explosion during his side’s match against Standard Liege. Riou’s penalty area was already ablaze when another firecracker thrown by Standard fans landed just behind him.

The force of the explosion left Riou in visible pain and forced him to the ground. Standard skipper Steven Defour approached his side’s fans to appeal for calm following the incident.
