ISTANBUL BASAKSEHIR reconvene their Champions League match against PSG tonight.
The fixture in Manchester United's group H was abandoned last night in the 14th minute of the game.
What time will PSG vs Istanbul kick off tonight?
PSG vs Istanbul will kick off at 5.55pm GMT tonight.
The match will resume from the 14th minute, which was the time it was abandoned last night.
The Parc des Princes plays host.
Why was it abandoned last night?
Players from both teams walked off the field in solidarity after the fourth official, Romanian Sebastian Coltescu, allegedly sparked a race row.
Approaching the 15th minute of the contest, Istanbul's assistant manager Pierre Webo was the victim of alleged racist behaviour.
Cameroonian Webo was initially shown a red card by referee Ovidiu Hategan after he was singled out by Coltescu for saying something out of turn from the bench.
It was then that an incensed Demba Ba, a substitute on the night, confronted the official, with Istanbul later alleging in a tweet that a 'racist word' was said to Webo.
The former Chelsea striker could be heard saying: "You never say 'this white guy', you say 'this guy', so why when you're mentioning him… listen to me… why when you mention a black guy, why do you say 'this black guy'."
The match was originally suspended, before it was later abandoned as Istanbul objected to fourth official Coltescu instead working as the VAR assistant for the remainder of the game.
A new officiating team will take charge of the match tonight.

Is there any way Man Utd can still progress?
Sadly for Ole Gunnar Solskajer's side, there is not.
Champions League group sorting is done on head-to-heads, not goal difference.
So even if PSG lose by a large margin it will not affect the standings.
PSG beat Man Utd 3-1 at Old Trafford, and lost 2-1 in Paris, giving them a better head-to-head record.
