The Luxembourgish side were 3-2 down on aggregate against Hungarians MOL Vidi, and seconds away from exiting the competition in the first qualifying round before Melisse's moment of madness.
In the fourth minute of added time, the Frenchman flew into a tackle and leapt high to dig his studs into poor Vidi midfielder Mate Patkai.
Once the 29-year-old was given his marching orders by Scottish referee Don Robertson, Melisse exchanged a few verbals with the Vidi bench before storming down the tunnel.
Look away now...
Vidi's 2-1 victory on the night means they will now face Ludogorets – 9-0 winners over Northern Ireland's Crusaders – in the second round of qualifying, with the first leg on July 23.
