Hi Aitor,
I understand that you have a list: dat of 2 element lists. You are 
looking for a matrix adj that, given 2 elements i,j, has a 1 at 
adj[[i,j]] and a -1 at  adj[[j,i]].
Well, first, create a zero matrix of the requested size:
adj=Array[0 &, {n, n}]
then fill in the 1's:
(adj [[Sequence @@ #]] = 1)& /@ dat
now make the matrix antisymmetric:
adj -= -Transpose[adj]
