Turkish Champions Galatasaray clinched a Champions League last sixteen berth by edging out Juventus in Wednesday’s rescheduled fixture at the Turk Telekom Arena in Istanbul.

Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder settled scores with his 85th minute effort on his return from injury. He latched onto Didier Drogba’s flick to finish low into the net as they completed Tuesday’s abandoned tie.

The match was suspended because of heavy Istanbul snow that defaced the stadium pitch lines.

The Turin-based visitors needed only a point to reach the last 16, while the host were out for an all-important victory.
