A mass brawl at the end of an Argentine Primera Division game between Lanus and Racing Club resulted in two red cards, with Fernando Ortiz and Paolo Goltz given their marching orders by the referee.
The first goal of the tense affair at the Estadio Presidente Juan Domingo Perón was scored by Racing Club with only three minutes left of the allotted 90 and, as Lanus pressed for an equaliser, tempers flared.
Nicolás Pasquini had already seen red for the visitors five minutes previous after two bookable offences, and was soon followed down the tunnel by two other players.
A melee in the Racing club penalty area after an off-the-ball incident saw Ortiz of the home side and Goltz of Lanus sanctioned by the match official, but that was not the end to the action.
Against the odds, Lanus managed to level proceedings after a lengthy delay, with Maximiliano Velázquez ending a breathless affair.
