The  KNVB Cup semi-final between the two Dutch giants, Ajax and Feyenoord was won by the visitors 2-1 at the De Kuip stadium in Rotterdam on Wednesday night. However, the game was temporarily suspended after Ajax midfielder Davy Klaassen was hit by a lighter, which was thrown by the home crowd in the frustration of watching their team lose.

Ajax won the  De Klassieker, which is arguably  Dutch football's biggest game, after beating Feyenoord in an away game and will next face  PSV Eindhoven in the  KNVB Cup  final later this month.

Just 10 minutes after Davy Klaassen scored the winner for Ajax, the derby between Ajax and Feyenoord was halted due to misconduct by the crowd. An object, appeared to be a lighter, was thrown by the crowd at Klaassen and left his head bloodied, which immediately stopped the play.

Watch a slower angle of the incident:

After a 28-minute break the game was resumed as the Feyenoord assistant manager directly addressed the fans and received applause from the crowd. He was quoted as saying in Dutch, "Fans at that side use your brain, Goddamnit! Make sure nothing is being thrown on the pitch again."

Talking about the match, Ajax forward Dusan Tadic drew the first blood and gave his team an early one-goal lead to his side in the 14th minute of the match, however, forward Santiago Gimenez fired an equalizer in the first-half injury time. Just six minutes into the second half, the 30-year-old Klaassen brought the visitors in the lead again with his goal.
