Fellow Atleti teammate Raul Garcia also picked up a suspension after receiving a yellow card for protesting another refereeing decision just minutes later.

Turan has been involved in a number of controversial incidents recently most notably his shoe throwing incident in the 3-2 loss against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey.

Turan responded to his boot coming off in a challenge by throwing it at the assistant referee. The boot narrowly missed the official’s head and resulted in the Turkish international being shown a yellow card.

Atleti are currently in third place on 50 points just four points behind league leaders Real Madrid.

Turan has a total of three goals and six assists in all competitions for the La Liga champions this season.
