No, not for any foul but his fault was he abused the referee.
For the Spanish giants Barcelona, the French striker Dembele already played 66 matches but sen just three yellow cards but yesterday, the referee gave him the red card directly. In the 87th minute of the game, Hernandez was fouled by Araujo and the match referee gave him a red card. So, there was an argument between the referee and Barca players noticed. In the meantime, Dembele told the referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz that ‘You are very bad’. Along with that, he showed something by his hand. And the referee Mateu Lahoz did not take time to show him the red card.
Ousmane Dembélé’s red card against Sevilla will be very hard to overturn, as history shows. He is set to miss the clash with Real Madrid. The RFEF code says insulting a referee comes with at least a two game ban. [sport] pic.twitter.com/0BCheKfZOp

In the last season of Spanish La Liga, Atletico Madrid star Diego Costa abused the referee and he was banned for eight matches. Comparing this, the fault of Dembele is nothing. It seems that the match referee did too much by giving him the red card. But also, in the season a star of Deportivo La Coruna star who said the referee ‘bad’ only, he has been banned for two matches. In that case, the Frenc striker Dembele would face the same punishment. And, if the punishment will be declared, he will miss the most wanted El Clasico.
The Spanish coach Ernesto Valverde made ahead of the fact. He stated that he does not be so sure what did Dembele told the referee. He rarely uses Spanish words. It is very mysterious no doubt.
