On 27 February 2011 Independiente hosted River Plate in the 3rd round of the Clausura 2011 tournament. Independiente needed the win to break their sequence of 13 league games without a win and River Plate knew that a win would allow them to go joint top with Olimpo (another side battling to avoid relegation).

In the first half this River Plate goal from Pablo Ferrari was incorrectly ruled offside by the linesman, at first glance you may think he was right to rule it out but a player cannot be judged to be offside if he is behind the ball and the passing player plays it in a forward direction.

In the end the decision did not cost River any points because Mariano Pavone knocked in an 88th minute winner for the visitors.
