It was the last round of the 1996 Brazilian Championship , Athletico lost to Criciúma 2-1, in the old Baixada, but Furacão fans celebrated their own team’s defeat and the Santa Catarina team’s permanence in the elite. The result relegated (or almost) Fluminense to Série B.

Athletico X Criciúma: The Day Furacão Fans Celebrated Defeat Due to Fluminense’s Fall.

The Atleticans’ party is explained by widespread confusion at a game in Laranjeiras weeks before. Fluminense took the lead with Leonardo, but Furacão turned it around with Luís Carlos Matos and Paulo Rink, twice.

The pivot of the fight was goalkeeper Ricardo Pinto, from Athletico, who spent almost ten years with Flu. Provoked by the fans during the game, Ricardo was thrilled with the result, and the fans invaded the field to attack him — the goalkeeper was seriously injured and was admitted to the ICU with head trauma and cerebral edema.
