The home side enjoyed most of the early possession and looked to take the lead when Albert Riera delivered a teasing ball into the middle of the box, which just eluded the incoming Didier Drogba.
Juventus almost opened the scoring with their first attacking move, as Fernando Llorente brought the ball down before flicking his shot just wide of the post.
Gala responded with another chance of their own as they looked in search of a win to boost their hopes of qualification, but Selcuk Inan's free kick inched wide with Gianluigi Buffon looking beaten.
However, the game was then abandoned due to snow lashing down around the ground, causing the pitch to lose its markings under the copious amounts of snowfall.
