Chelsea FC made it an unhappy return to Stamford Bridge for Galatasaray AŞ's Didier Drogba by marching into the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals for the eighth time in 11 seasons.
While all the attention had been focused on the reunion with their former forward, it was one of their current ones, Samuel Eto'o, who got the ball rolling Chelsea's way with a strike after four minutes. If that was a well-worked incursion, the second goal owed everything to smart reactions, Gary Cahill following up a John Terry header to score from close range.
We are in the last eight, among the best teams in the world, and all the big clubs are there. All our players deserve to be.
José Mourinho, Chelsea manager
We really played very, very badly. It’s impossible to score with just one shot on goal. We need to take several steps in order to be a better team.
Roberto Mancini, Galatasaray coach
