WESLEY SNEIJDER SCORED the winner as Galatasaray booked their place in the Champions League last 16 and eliminated Juventus.

The Turkish champions qualified with a 1-0 win after heavy snow in Istanbul forced the Group B match to be abandoned last night.

The weather had hardly improved when the sides returned to play the final 59 minutes at the TT Arena Stadium this afternoon.

A point would have been enough to see Juventus through as group runners-up behind Real Madrid.

But Sneijder struck five minutes from time to seal Gala’s progress and condemn the Italians to the Europa League.
