Fans engulf the stadium in flames celebrating the worst game-winning penalty ever

A top-of-the-table clash between regional rivals Independiente Rivadavia and Deportivo Maipú in the Primera Nacional (Argentina's second tier) on Saturday night went viral for a number of reasons.

The must-see video is of Independiente supporters celebrating the approaching full-time whistle with an insane display of pyrotechnics. Incredibly, Deportivo Maipú almost scored an equalizer with the final kick of the match while all this was going on, but Independiente held on for a 2-1 win to supplant their rivals at the top of the Zone B table.

You also need to see the game-winner, which was ultimately a penalty converted by Independiente's Alex Arce in the 84th-minute. However, Arce managed to get himself booked before taking the penalty with an absurd routine.  

Arce recieved the ref's message loud and clear.

Deportivo Maipú's lone goal was a cheeky lob from Marcelo Eggel. 

They're only at the halfway point of the season so there's still plenty of ball left to be played by my new favorite team in Argentina's second division, la Lepra.
