UEFA postpone Turkey games

UEFA announced that next week’s Champions League Group D tie between Turkish side Galatasaray and Italy’s Juventus has been postponed until December 2 because of security fears. European football’s governing body said that the decision was taken following Thursday’s suicide bomb attacks against British interests in Istanbul which killed 26 people and injured 450. The UEFA Cup second round second-leg tie between Israel’s Maccabi Haifa and Spanish side Valencia, due to take place next Thursday at the Alsancak Stadium in Izmir, has also been postponed.
