The referee's report for Barcelona's defeat at Real Sociedad includes the reasons behind Tata Martino's dismissal. The Barca coach was sent off at halftime.

Fernández Borbalán stated in his report: "At the end of the first-half and in the tunnel to the changing rooms, Barcelona manager Gerardo Daniel Martino was sent off for shouting at the Real Sociedad assistant manager, using the following words: 'You're an a**hole! You caused trouble the other day and you're doing it today'. This sending off was communicated to me by my first assistant referee."
