After our bad start of the play-off league, a very decisive match was played at the Riazor vs Celta, with a tense athmosphere. Celta was 1 point ahead of us. Our last hopes depended on that result, and again another big robbery, in our face. A Celta's player, Alvelo, suffered a fault (or more accurately, he dived) about 1 meter out of the area and the referee (Díaz Vega) incredibly gave a penalty kick for them, at the end of the 1st half. Of course, they scored the goal, by their big star top scorer brazilian Baltazar, who later would play in Atletico Madrid and would be Pichichi of Primera.

But that strange penalty was the detonating/booster in the stands, and there were a lot of incidents, specially at the half time, with fights between fans of both teams (they were mixed in the stands by then) and also with the police.... We finally lost the match and our chances of promotion, and Celta ascended to Primera. It caused that the rivalry between Depor-Celta and A Coruña-Vigo increased hugely.

Here's a video with some images of those incidents at Riazor:

It's in this context, some time later, in 1987 yet, when the "Riazor Blues" are born.
