The home side's management cracked down on the fraudulent activity after the venue's capacity exceeded its limit after fake tickets were sold on 2 March against the Brazilians.

As such, the Durban-based outfit were on high alert and managed to nab two offenders for the clash.

He told Kickoff: "There are a few fans who were arrested. They were caught selling fake tickets and we can safely say as the club that they were selling fake tickets because they were all using the same number.

"So it is one ticket that has been repeatedly done, so they were arrested. The security department has done a big job and as of now they'll be arrested here at Umlazi police station.

"Then they'll appear in front of the Magistrate Court and definitely as the club we are charging them for selling fake tickets."

In addition, a third person was arrested after a scuffle in the tunnel involving a fan and a member of Downs' technical team.
