Liege won the match 3-1 but the major talking point was the shocking scenes in the stands.

The atmosphere was electric as both sets of supporters cheered the entrance of the teams with pyrotechnic displays and tifos.

The game itself was interrupted for a few minutes due to smoke bombs being thrown onto the pitch.

But things took a turn for the worse when Charleroi supporters started throwing dead rats painted red in the direction of their Liege counter parts.

In a press release published by the Liege supporters group on Facebook, the behaviour of the Charleroi fans was slammed.

The statement read: “Supporters” from Charleroi threw dead rats in the direction of T2. We are not talking about one or two rats but easily about ten.

“We hope that the Pro League will act, that our club will file a complaint and that animal associations will get involved.

“You really are big s****. We already knew that but you’ve just confirmed it even more.”

The Charleroi ultras were dressed as pest control in the stands and unfurled a banner with the words “Rat control” emblazoned across it.


In the week building up to the game Charleroi ultras had posted messages to their social media sites comparing the Liege supporters to rats.

One such post translated as : “After the floods, and even more since the acceleration of the tram works in Liège, the rats are out. The inhabitants of Liège who walk during the day or in the evening in the streets of the Cité Ardente have certainly noticed it.”

During the game Charleroi supporters were heard chanting “ In the mud, there are rats, they are everywhere the rats, they are the people of Liège.”

This isn’t the first time that Charleroi have been in trouble for their off the pitch behaviour.

Back in November 2022 a match against Mechelen was interrupted by Charleroi supporters throwing smoke bombs and missiles onto the pitch.
