thumbnail Hello,

Galatasaray was easily swept aside by the Blues, while Real Madrid's scoring machine scored twice to help his side past Schalke 9-2 on aggregate.

Chelsea brushed aside Galatasaray with a 2-0 win Tuesday to ruin Didier Drogba's hopes of a winning return to his former club in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw last month but the Blues coasted to victory at Stamford Bridge, while Real Madrid followed up its massive first-leg 6-1 win with a 3-1 victory at home against Schalke.

Goal selects the best imagery from the night — from Roberto Mancini's men being dumped out of the European tournament at the hands of Jose Mourinho to Cristiano Ronaldo's heroics as the Blancos triumphed at the Santiago Bernabeu.
