Hugo Barrientos vs Gio Moreno

On 13 February 2011 in the opening round of the Clausura 2011 tournament All Boys played Racing Club in an ill tempered game featuring far more silly fouls and yellow cards than entertaining passages of play. The big moment of controversy happened on 78 minutes when All Boys' midfield enforcer Hugo Barrientos and Racing's Colombian midfielder Giovanni Moreno collided near the halfway line. Moreno was stretchered off and in the aftermath Barrientos received death threats against him and his family following the announcement that Moreno could be out for up to six months.

it is hard to see how Moreno ended up so badly injured, however if the referee had maintained better control of the game and stopped the pair from bickering all the way through the match this incident probably wouldn't have happaned.
