Galatasaray advances in Champions League

Published:

ISTANBUL (AP) -- Wesley Sneijder scored a late goal Wednesday to help Galatasaray advance to the knockout stage of the Champions League with a 1-0 win over Juventus in a weather-delayed match.

The former Inter Milan midfielder scored in the 85th minute in snowy conditions, eliminating Juventus from the competition.

The match had been abandoned in the 32nd minute on Tuesday because of hail and snow.

The field was cleared of snow before the restart but the efforts had left it in poor condition.

Both Juventus coach Antonio Conte and Galatasaray striker Didier Drogba complained to the referee at halftime.
