The match between Independiente and Lanús came with tensions in Avellaneda. The first crossing had been when Alan Velasco, after receiving a foul, reacted against Belmonte due to a comment made by the Grana player: the player from Rojo was on top of him and his opponent fell to the ground. The referee, Silvio Trucco, admonished the Diablo player. But everything continued at the end of the first half.
On a play in the middle of the court, Velasco fell to the ground after a contact with Belmonte that did not appear to be a violation. Silvio Romero and other local players went over to the referee in claiming a disciplinary sanction. Burdisso, Laucha Acosta and others from Garnet were also part of the questioning of the judge, because they indicated that there was a previous foul. Trucco delayed and took the second yellow at the wheel of Lanús, which meant the expulsion.

Then, the situation became tense due to the claims of the players against Trucco and because, going to the locker room, there was a crossroads because Belmonte told the members of the Independiente bench “cold breasts”. A Red utility man reacted, there were shoves and several participated in the fight.
