Galatasaray-Juventus rescheduled for Wednesday

Galatasaray AŞ against Juventus in Istanbul was abandoned after a snow storm caused the pitch to become unplayable and will resume with the score 0-0 at 14.00CET on Wednesday.

The UEFA Champions League Group B fixture between Galatasaray AŞ and Juventus will be played to a finish on Wednesday afternoon after Tuesday's match was abandoned due to snow. 

Referee Pedro Proença took the players off in the 31st minute and ground staff took to the Ali Sami Yen Spor Kompleksi pitch to clear the lines.

However, play was unable to resume as both captains and the referee agreed that the pitch had become dangerous, the official ultimately making the decision to abandon the game.

The match in Istanbul will resume at 14.00CET (15.00 local time). Juventus need a point to join group winners Real Madrid CF in the knockout phase, while a Galatasaray victory would see them claim second place.
