THIS was the terrifying moment a grenade was hurled onto the pitch ahead of Argentina’s game on Sunday.
Rosario Central and Newell’s Old Boys are set to go head to head in a major clash in South America.
But incredible scenes ensued before a ball was even kicked when a fan threw an object onto the field.
And it quickly became clear it was a grenade when an explosion hit the pitch.
Smoke then surrounded one corner of the penalty area as supporters couldn’t believe it.
The visiting side, Newell’s Old Boys, tweeted the video.
And the club added: “The moment a grenade was thrown on the pitch in front of Clasico Rosarino.”
Newell’s Old Boys continued to win with a score of 1-0.
A goal from Juan Manuel Garcia in the sixth minute of the second half was enough to claim all three points.
Several famous players played for Newell’s Old Boys before moving to Europe and becoming global superstars.
