At the end of the evening on Tuesday, UEFA appointed new referees for the resumption of the meeting between PSG and Basaksehir Istanbul, arrested before the quarter of an hour of play on Tuesday evening after accusations of racism against the fourth referee, the Romanian Sebastian Coltescu. The Romanian quartet responsible for this Champions League match has been sidelined by the European body and will be replaced by a Dutch duo, accompanied by two Poles.
It is therefore Danny Makkelie, 37-year-old central referee, who will be responsible for giving the kick-off, scheduled for 6:55 pm this Wednesday in the 13th minute of play. Originally from the Netherlands, he had already officiated on November 24 last at the Parc des Princes during the Parisian victory against RB Leipzig (1-0). Mario Diks, assistant referee, will be by his side again. Finally, the third assistant referee and the fourth referee are Poles Marcin Boniek and Bartosz Frankowski.
However, UEFA does not change the duo in charge of the video referee. Italians Marco Di Bello (main referee) and Maurizio Mariani (his assistant) remain in office. The latter had been mentioned in the evening of Tuesday as a potential replacement for the fourth referee, accused of racism by Cameroonian Pierre Achille Webo, assistant coach of the Istanbul club.
