thumbnail Hello,

Galatasaray were easily swept aside by the Blues, while Real Madrid's goalscoring machine scored twice to help them past Schalke 9-2 on aggregate

Chelsea brushed aside Galatasaray with a 2-0 win on 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 with the 2011-12 winners at the Turk Telekom Arena last month but the Blues coasted to victory at Stamford Bridge, while Real Madrid followed up their massive first-leg 6-1 win with a 3-1 victory at home to 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.
