The captain of Eintracht Frankfurt, David Abraham, was deported after a charge in the shoulder against Freiburg's manager, Christian Streich, causing a mass brawl.
In the last moments of the Bundesliga match in the high flight of German football, Abraham was trying to recover a loose ball with a goal back, reports the Sun.
While the ball was out of play and Abraham was chasing, Streich took a step in the way of Argentina.
But rather than turn around him, the 1.88 m central defender was picked up by the German coach.
Streich felt the full force of the blow and was lying face down in the technical area.
The charge saw the match sink into chaos, as dozens of players and staff from both groups clashed in ugly scenes.
The scrum, which saw a lot of jostling, lasted nearly five minutes until the players were controlled by the officials.
Abraham won a red card for the houseboat. Vincenzo Grifo from Freiburg was also expelled after the skirmish.
The two men joined Gelson Fernandes to win a red card, the former man from Manchester City and Leicester was sent off just before the break.
The Friborg surprise package finally won 1-0, with Nils Peterson scoring the only goal of scoring points with RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich behind leader Borussia Mönchengladbach.
