The Champions League match between Paris Saint-Germain and Istanbul Basaksehir will restart on Wednesday, an official from the Turkish club told AFP, after being suspended in the 14th minute on Tuesday following allegations of racism by the fourth official.

"The game will restart on Wednesday from where it was stopped," the official said after Basaksehir tweeted that their players had decided "not to go back out onto the pitch" due to racism directed at their assistant coach, former Cameroon international Pierre Webo.

The match was suspended in the first half as players walked off amid allegations of racism by one of the match officials, in an unprecedented incident in European football's elite club competition.

The row erupted after Basaksehir assistant coach Pierre Webo, the former Cameroon international, was shown a red card during a fierce row on the touchline with staff from the Turkish club appearing to accuse the fourth official of using a racist term.

Television microphones picked up a furious Webo repeatedly asking why a racist term had been used to describe him.

The game at the Parc des Princes stopped in the 14th minute while still goalless, with the players walking off around 10 minutes later.
