In the first meeting of the season, Real Madrid and Rojillos had tied two goals at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium, while on the way back, the Reds had advanced with a goal of Pizo Gomez at 34 minutes of the first part.

In the absence of ten minutes Echeverría would uneven the score, but the worst came later: Santillana was expelled for claiming a card to a reddish player for a foul on Juanito in the area that defended Basauri. While he was leaving, the Cantabrian striker allegedly insulted the referee. Although the Madridista swore and perjured that he had said nothing, he had three penalty matches. But the thing was not there: a coin thrown from the stands hit Santillana as the Madrid striker retired to the locker room.
