The most brutal game in history

Can't remember exactly when it was but the Barcelona v Athletico game when it turned into a full scale riot has to be up there. As would the Celtic v Athletico Bilbao(?) when they literally kicked Jimmy Johnstone off the pitch. 

It was Diego Maradona's last game for Barca, Digs. He really lost the plot after constant provocation throughout. He would be aware that Andoni Goicochea, the "Butcher of Bilbao" had done his best to end Maradona's career the year before with a horrific tackle which left him with extensive ankle ligament damage. It's on YouTube.

Going off topic again, but to illustrate another difference with the modern game, this is Leeds captain Billy Bremner after the semi final victory in the same competition.
