Galatasaray-Juventus fixture abandoned

By Football News



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 hailstorm left the pitch 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.
