Full time: Paris Saint-Germain cruise to top spot in Group G with this comprehensive victory.
There will be just two minutes of added-time. PSG win a free-kick, Neymar slams it into the wall and Gunok prevents the corner with his clearance.
Former Tottenham player Chadli replaces Tekdemir for Basaksehir as we approach the 90th minute.
The pace of the game may have slowed but Neymar is still intent on a fourth goal of the evening. His shot lacks the power to beat Gunok on this occasion though.
Paredes has taken the captain's armband for PSG, by the way.
Considering PSG have only registered eight shots on target tonight, they have a pretty decent conversion rate.

Triple PSG sub: Pembele replaces Florenzi, Gueye comes on for Verrati and Kimpembe makes way for Diallo.
With 15 minutes to play, the intensity of the contest has dropped.
A chance for Mbappe's hat-trick! Neymar sends him through, but he's too clever with his dinked finish and Gunok stands up to make the save.
Neymar goes on a remarkable run. He just keeps running and running, but is eventually stopped.
Neymar, searching for his fourth, is alert to receive a short corner. But his shot lacks conviction and Gunok makes the save.

PSG sub: Thilo Kehrer comes on for Marquinhos.
PSG work another fluid attacking move, with the ball spread wide to Di Maria, in space on the right. He slides it across the face of goal and only an important intervention fro Topal denies Mbappe his hat-trick.
Basaksehir give the ball away cheaply - and they give it away to the wrong man. Neymar tries to do too much though and eventually runs into trouble, with Topal making the challenge.
- Yellow cardEnzo CrivelliBasaksehir
Yellow card! Crivelli goes into the book for a foul on Paredes.
- GoalKylian MbappéParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! PSG 5-1 Basaksehir (Mbappe): PSG are proving so devastating on the counter-attack! Neymar threads it to Di Maria, who is through one-on-one with the goalkeeper. But rather selflessly, he squares it to Mbappe, who has the simple task of tapping it home into an empty net.
- GoalMehmet TopalBasaksehir
GOAL! PSG 4-1 Basaksehir (Topal): Topal gets on the scoresheet - but he doesn't know much about it! Kahveci's powerful volley hits Topal's thigh and ends up past Navas!
Chance! Basaksehir are enjoying a decent spell in the game, and they go close to a consolation goal. Tekdemir pounces on a slip in midfield and takes aim with a thunderous shot which Navas does well to tip behind!
PSG go close! Clearly not content with just the four, the hosts are hungry for more as Di Maria charges forward from the right and his shot is deflected over the bar.
Have a look at Neymar's opener...
- GoalNeymarParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! PSG 4-0 Basaksehir (Neymar): Oh my, there's the hat-trick for Neymar! And in some style too! The brilliant Brazilian collects on the left side of the penalty area, rides a couple of challenges and plays a neat give-and-go with Di Maria on the edge of the penalty before before lashing it past Gunok.
Neymar drops into space and turns smartly as he looks for his hat-trick. But he's denied by compatriot Rafael who makes an important challenge.
Kick-off! The second half gets underway, with PSG making a change at the break - Di Maria has replaced Rafinha.
- End of 1st Half
Half-time: Paris Saint-Germain are already out of sight thanks to the brilliant Neymar's double and Mbappe's penalty.
There will be three minutes of added-time to play at the end of the first half.
I thought Neymar, on a hat-trick, would have taken the penalty. After all, it was his smart run that won the foul. But he has been a team player and allowed Mbappe to take responsibility. And boy Mbappe needed that goal.
- Goal by penaltyKylian MbappéParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! PSG 3-0 Basaksehir (Mbappe, pen): There is no doubt about this one as Mbappe scores his long awaited Champions League goal from the spot!
Penalty to PSG! It's a strange decision from the referee, who opts to rule out the goal and award PSG a penalty for the goalkeeper's foul on Neymar! Gunok is booked.
We are still awaiting the decision from the officials. Was Bakker offside?
Goal... or is it? PSG have their third of the night! Bakker slides it into an empty net after Neymar goes down after contact from the goalkeeper Gunok. But VAR is going to check it. Will it count?
- GoalNeymarParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! PSG 2-0 Basaksehir (Neymar): PSG double their advantage on the counter! Rafinha leads the break, driving forward and spreading it wide to Mbappe. His pass to Neymar is perfect and the Brazilian squeezes it past Gunok!
That's more like it from the visitors! Kahveci delivers a teasing ball into the box, it's difficult for the PSG defenders to deal with and Danilo does well to head it behind at the expense of a corner.
Paredes releases Mbappe with a beautiful pass from the centre of midfield. The PSG forward is caught by the goalkeeper as he tries to round him and the referee has a decision to make... it's an offside call! Another let off for Basaksehir.
There are appeals for a handball inside the box as Turuc delivers a corner for Basaksehir. But there's nothing doing from the referee, who then signals for a foul on Neymar.
Mbappe is one-vs-one with the full-back inside the penalty area but the angle is right and he can't get the ball out of his feet. Basaksehir survive.
Mbappe receives the ball on the right and remains patient as Neymar makes a forward run. He picks his team mate out with a lovely pass, but Basaksehir goalkeeper Gunok reads the situation well and takes it off his feet.
Mbappe takes down a diagonal ball beautifully, but full-back Kaldirim is there on the cover and makes the tackle.
PSG look like they are in the mood tonight. They cut through the visiting defence with ease, but this time Ponck makes a successful challenge on Neymar. The Brazilian gets it back, but puts just too much on a through ball searching for Mbappe.
- GoalNeymarParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! PSG 1-0 Basaksehir (Neymar): Oh that is beautiful! Neymar puts it through the legs of Ponck and then curls it past the goalkeeper with a gorgeous curling shot that hits the top right hand corner. Perfect. It's a goal that will be shown again and again.
It has certainly been an open start at Parc des Princes, with both sides spurning early chances.
Chance for Mbappe! What an opportunity for the PSG forward to end his CL goal drought! He times his run to stay onside and races through with just the goalkeeper to beat. But his volley flashes over the top of the bar!
Basaksehir chance! Navas is forced into an early save on the night, with the PSG goalkeeper keeping Gulbrandsen's effort out with his feet. The home defence was opened far too easily there.
The game restarts with Basaksehir taking a free-kick. The clock, you will notice, is at 14 minutes and it's goalless.
Every player and match official take the knee as the Champions League anthem plays. It's a powerful picture. There can be no place for racism in football.
There are just FIVE minutes until kick-off now. Both sides are warming up with every player wearing an anti-racism t-shirt in what is a strong message of support to Webo.
Tuchel on Mbappe's goal drought: "I heard about that statistic and I was surprised. I can't explain it because he has everything needed to score at every level. He has the quality, the personality and the experience to be decisive."
Mbappe may have been on target at the weekend, but the 21-year-old hasn't found the back of the net in the Champions League in nine matches, a run that goes back to December 11, 2019 when PSG thrashed Galatasaray 5-0.
Thomas Tuchel's side come into this contest in confident form having recorded a 3-1 victory over Montpellier in Ligue 1 at the weekend, with Colin Dagba, Moise Kean and Kylian Mbappe registering on the scoresheet.
PSG are already through to the knockout stages of the competition and will finish top of Group H with victory. Basaksehir's place at the bottom of the group is also confirmed.
Webo's red card has been frozen and he will take his place at the bench tonight.
