Galatasaray-Juventus fixture abandoned

10 December 2013 21:51

The UEFA Champions League Group B fixture between Galatasaray and Juventus was abandoned after 31 minutes due to inclement weather.

Portuguese referee Pedro Proenca was forced to call a halt to proceedings, with the score at 0-0, when a heavy snow storm left the pitch at the Turk Telekom Arena predominantly white.

Groundstaff attempted to clear the field to allow play to resume, but a decision was ultimately taken to call off the fixture.

Galatasaray and Juventus are both seeking to gain qualification from Group B as runners-up, with Real Madrid having already secured top spot and Copenhagen unable to qualify.

According to competition regulations, the remaining match time must be played either the following day (Wednesday) or on an alternative date set by UEFA.

Remarkably, the pitch was completely clear when the game began, only for weather conditions in Istanbul to deteriorate significantly as the first half progressed.
