A fan was stabbed to death in the aftermath of Palmeiras' 2-0 loss to arch-rival Corinthians on Thursday.

SAO PAULO -- A fan of Brazilian club Palmeiras has died of stab wounds after a fight with Corinthians supporters following a match between the two Sao Paulo teams.

It's the second violent death of a Brazilian football fan in less than a week.

The dead man was identified by Sao Paulo hospital officials as Leandro de Paula. He died early Thursday, shortly after Corinthians had defeated Palmeiras 2-0.

Police said the victim had been stabbed twice in the abdomen, and that two Corinthians supporters had been detained.

A fan of Rio de Janeiro club Vasco de Gama died of gunshot wounds last weekend following a match against city rival Flamengo.
