Juventus and Galatasaray players walk off the snowy field in Istanbul as their vital Champions League match was halted on Tuesday.

ISTANBUL (AP) — UEFA says the Champions League match between Galatasaray and Juventus has been abandoned due to bad weather.

Tuesday's match was halted in the 31st minute with the score at 0-0 as hail and snow began to fall heavily in Istanbul.

Both teams went back to the dressing room as groundsmen tried to clear the lines.

Half an hour later it was decided to postpone the Group B match.

European football's ruling body said "the remaining match time must be played either tomorrow or on a reserve date or other date set by the UEFA administration."

A definitive decision is expected later on Tuesday.

Juventus needs a point to qualify for the knockout stage while Galatasaray has to win to progress.
