There was a very scary moment involving Vitesse Arnhem's fans after the team's 1-0 victory away at NEC Nijmegen on Sunday afternoon.

Supporters were understandably ecstatic with the priceless win on the road and the players came over to celebrate in front of them after the full-time whistle had been blown.

But as those in the away end were jumping up and down with joy, the stand beneath them collapsed, which resulted in those at the front being sent tumbling towards the ground.

It's not yet known whether any Vitesse supporters were injured during the concerning incident at the Stadion De Goffert.

We hope that everyone involved is okay.

Vitesse's victory on Sunday, which was secured by a 16th-minute goal from Nikolai Baden, means the team will finish the weekend in the European qualification places.

The Dutch outfit earned a spot in the Europa Conference League last season and will host Tottenham Hotspur in the competition next Thursday evening.

Vitesse are currently on three points in the group, with their most recent encounter against Rennes seeing them defeated 2-1.

The Eredivisie side will likely prove to be a tough test for Spurs, despite the fact they are struggling to score goals.

In their nine league games so far in 2021/22, Vitesse have scored just nine goals, the fifth-lowest total in the Dutch top-flight.

But Spurs would be wise not to underestimate them.
