Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder knocked Juventus out of the UEFA Champions League after scoring the only goal of the game on a muddy pitch in Istanbul.

The match between Galatasaray and Juventus kicked off yesterday, but was abandoned due to heavy snow. Both clubs continued playing the match today on a muddy pitch where grounds crew had worked overnight to clear the snow.

In the Matchday 6 game, Juventus only needed a draw to proceed to the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League, but the second half goal by Sneijder was the difference in the game as Roberto Mancini’s side celebrated a gigantic victory against the Italian champions.

Galatasaray are now in the final 16 of the UEFA Champions League, while Juventus will move to the Europa League.

  3. Dean Stell says:

    Nice first touch and nice finish. I mean, the keeper was covering that far post and he still finished to that side.

    Crappy centerback play though. I mean, those guys just ran around in the box and made zero effort to hurl themselves at the ball.

    This is great on so many levels, especially because Mina Rzouki is getting trolled so hard on twitter.
