Galatasaray vs Juventus match to resume Wednesday

The Champions League match between Galatasaray and Juventus was abandoned due to poor weather on Tuesday with the remaining 59 minutes to be played on Wednesday.
Play 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 after "both captains and the referee agreed that the pitch had become dangerous" according to a statement by European football's governing body UEFA.
UEFA later announced the match will kick off at 3 p.m. local time (1300 GMT) on Wednesday. ( 08:00 am ET ) 
UEFA had originally said it would restart at 2 p.m. (1200 GMT) but Turkish police sought to have the match put back an hour for safety reasons.
