Turan came on after 66 minutes in place of the Croatian international Ivan Rakitic.
The 29-year-old momentarily looked to have received a red card before the referee realised his mistake and switched the red card for the yellow card.
Turan’s goal came in the 86th minute when he headed in a cross from Jeremy Mathieu.
Barcelona have gone 35 games without a defeat which is a club record and matching the overall Spanish record set by Leo Beenhakker during his time in command of Real Madrid back in the 1988-89 season.
Turan has three assist and one goal in 13 appearances for Barcelona this season.
