Aouar was initially shown a yellow card before it was upgraded to a red after VAR replays.
Montpellier took the lead in the 38th-minute thanks to a Teji Savanier penalty.
And, just five minutes later, Aouar took out his frustration on the shins of Souquet.
The in-demand Lyon skipper charged at his opponent and lunged in, studs-first - getting absolutely nowhere near the ball.
Aouar was shown a yellow card in the 44th minute before video replays conclusively proved the hack deserved a red.Sign up to play Dream Team 2020/21 now

Despite having made his debut five years ago, the dismissal was Aouar's first ever sending-off.
Savanier later scored his second to give Montpellier a 2-0 lead, before Memphis Depay scored a late consolation from the penalty spot following Vitorino Hilton's red card.
Hilton was shown red for denying wonderkid Rayan Cherki a clear-cut goalscoring chance, with Barcelona target Depay setting up a nervy final ten minutes.Most read in FootballPicturedTOP OF THE FLOPSChelsea flop Kepa sends fans wild as he shows off huge bulge in pantsLive BlogUNITED LATESTMan Utd transfer news LIVE: Follow all the latest news from Old TraffordGREAL TOUGHGrealish admits it was a 50-50 decision to stay at Villa amid Man Utd interestPicturedDOWN TIMERonaldo relaxes on £30,000-a-week yacht in the Med with Georgina and palsLive BlogGUNNERS NEWSArsenal transfer news LIVE - Latest updates from the EmiratesTHANKS A BILLIONEverton v Salford no David v Goliath showdown as owners worth almost £2bn
The 2-1 loss could now become Aouar's final game for Lyon - with Arsenal, Juventus and Manchester City interested in the midfielder.
The Gunners are thought to have made Aouar their No1 target - even ahead of Atletico Madrid ace Thomas Partey.
However, they may have to shell out £55million to sign the France Under-21s star, with the player believed to be keen on a move away.Houssem Aouar shows off his ball control in Lyon football training
