Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, was sent off as his team held Torino to a 1-1 draw in Serie A on Sunday.
It was a frantic few final minutes in which the hosts missed a penalty.
Mourinho was already angry about a first-half decision not to allow his side a penalty for a handball which the VAR ruled was involuntary. He was sent off a minute before stoppage time for protesting, with visitors Torino leading 1-0.
“It was the right decision, my words to the referee deserved a red card,” Mourinho told DAZN.
“I spoke to him after the game and apologised. But I don’t want to talk about his performance. I was humble enough to apologise but I will leave his performance and the hypothetical influence on the match to you.
“I don’t want to talk about what we said, that was private. My words deserved a red card but I will not judge the referee’s performance.”
Three minutes later, Andrea Belotti’s penalty hit the post after a foul by Koffi Djidji on Paulo Dybala.
Matic saved a point for Roma four minutes into stoppage time with a long shot from outside the box.
Karol Linetty, left out of the Polish World Cup squad bound for Qatar, had scored for Torino in the 55th minute, jumping for Wilfried Singo’s cross and heading into the net.
Roma are in seventh place with 27 points after 15 games as the league goes into the World Cup break. Torino are on ninth with 21 points.
