The match between Paris Saint-Germain and Basaksehir, which was canceled in the 14th minute, found a clear winner a day late. Earlier there had been problems with the fourth official.

The interruption of the game on Tuesday due to the racism scandal surrounding the Romanian fourth official Sebastian Coltescu could not stop Paris St. Germain in the Champions League on the way to group victory. One day late, coach Thomas Tuchel’s team won against Istanbul Basaksehir 5: 1 (3: 0) and pushed RB Leipzig off the top of the table in Group H.

Before the game, which continued on Wednesday with the 14th minute of the game, the pros of both teams knelt in the “Black lives matter” gesture. The new team of referees led by the Dutchman Danny Makkelie also took part in this campaign.

One-sided game in Paris

Coltescu had triggered the scandal by a statement to referee Ovidiu Hategan about Istanbul assistant coach Pierre Webo. Coltescu described Webo to his countryman as a “black man”. Both teams then left the field in protest.

In a one-sided game, the French champions set the course for victory before half-time. Superstar Neymar scored in the 21st and 38th minute, Kylian Mbappé converted a penalty kick in the 42nd minute). After the break, Neymar (50th) and Mbappe (62nd) were again successful, Mehmet Topal (57th) scored for the overwhelmed guests.

Liverpool only draws against outsiders

The English champions FC Liverpool, who had already qualified for the second round of the royal class, had to settle for a 1-1 (1-0) draw with the Danish champions FC Midtjylland in Herning. The lightning-fast lead from striker Mohamed Salah after just 57 seconds was not enough for coach Jürgen Klopp’s team to win. Alexander Scholz (62nd) equalized with a penalty.

Robin Gosens could cheer. With Atalanta Bergamo, the German international won 1-0 (0-0) at Ajax Amsterdam. Thanks to this success, which Luis Muriel (85th) ensured, the Italians reached the second round. The hosts, on the other hand, outnumbered in the past eleven minutes, have to be relegated to the Europa League.
