As it happened

  1. 22:31: 

    That's that for the night then. Chelsea are into the last eight, can Manchester United join them? We shall find out tomorrow. Olympiakos hold a 2-0 lead ahead of the game at Old Trafford - we shall see you there...

  2. 22:30: 
    Manager reaction- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho on Didier Drogba: "I think it was difficult the way the team played, if you are a striker and the team is not there you are a lonely man.

    "I think he couldn't do much, in my opinion Gary Cahill and John Terry gave a fantastic performance, we controlled the game so well we couldn't see Didier in the dangerous positions."

  3. 22:25: 
    Injury update- Real Madrid 3-1 Schalke (Agg 9-2)

    Real Madrid winger Jese was an early casualty against Schalke and the youngster has picked up a serious injury.

    "I think it is confirmed he has ruptured a cruciate ligament," said manager Carlo Ancelotti.

    "He has had bad luck and it is bad luck for Real Madrid because we are going to lose a very important, young player who has done very well this season and surprised everyone."

  4. 22:23: 
    Manager reaction- Wigan 3-3 Yeovil

    Wigan manager Uwe Rosler: "At some point our run had to come to an end and sometimes you have to take what you get, we didn't deserve to win.

    "Overall Yeovil were very resilient, they bombarded us with long balls and we couldn't win the first header.

    "A few players were tiring in the last 10 minutes. Players have to come into the team and take their chance with some injuries, I don't write off James Perch currently even though I had to take him off.

    "I am not here to blame individuals. We gave all we had, we were down on our knees in the last 10 minutes. I have massive respect for the players and the run we had it had to end at some point."

  5. 22:19: 
    Transfer news- Wigan 3-3 Yeovil

    Wigan have also made a good signing tonight - landing West ham midfielder Jack Collison on loan until the end of the season. He was in the stands to watch tonight's madness and is eligible to play in the FA Cup semi-final.

  6. 22:15: 
    Manager reaction- Wigan 3-3 Yeovil
    Yeovil

    Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson: "I enjoyed that one, I have come up against Uwe Rosler four times and I have got three wins and a draw.

    "We have never felt we were down, we feel we are in the race to stay up and we need to keeping getting results, we know Wigan are a Premier League side and we held them well."

    Simon in Canterbury: Re: 22:01. If the FA based their decisions on footballing merit, John Terry would be going to Brazil, and England wouldn't be going out in the group stage.

  8. 22:13: 
    Manager reaction- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)
    Roberto Mancini

    Roberto Mancini, Galatasaray coach: "We really played very, very badly. Chelsea were the better side and they converted the opportunities they got.

    "It's impossible to score with just one shot on goal. We need to take several steps in order to be a better team."

  9. 22:11: 
    Manager reaction- Wigan 3-3 Yeovil

    Yeovil boss Gary Johnson: "I haven't got my breath back but I am proud of the boys.

    "We were euphoric at 2-1 up but a couple of mistakes let them go ahead. But we were so determined to get a goal back at the end. We had a corner, we sent the keeper up there and the point is massive. That gives us real confidence."

  10.  
    Text us on 81111

    Andrew: Chelsea may be through to the Champions League quarter-finals and they might well have Jose Mourinho in charge, but do they honestly believe they would have what it takes to beat a Bayern Munich or Real Madrid over two legs? I certainly can't see it.

  11. 22:06: 
    Ronaldo rolls on
    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo now has 13 goals in the Champions League this season, and he is the first player to score in seven consecutive Champions League games. How do you stop him?

  12. 22:01: 

    The 'who goes to Brazil' debate will gather pace as we approach the end of the season. Ashley Cole must surely need to get into the Chelsea team if he is to go though?

  13. 21:59: 
    Manager reaction- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)
    Jose MOurinho

    Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho: "Last season the Europa league was a different level but to come from there to the Champions League quarter-final is important for the players and the club.

    "We are a Champions League club, we are amongst the last eight, the best teams in the world, with all the big clubs. The players deserve to be there."

  14.   
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "Chelsea are relying on Jose Mourinho for his knowledge if they are to have any chance of beating Bayern Munich or Real Madrid. They are an outside chance to win, they are sixth or seventh favourites.

    "There are important goals that come from Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill and John Terry that will be important for Chelsea for the rest of the season"

  15.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "When you see John Terry and the way he organises the team, you can see how much England could do with him.

    "On their current form Roy Hodgson will surely choose Frank Lampard over Michael Carrick due to his goals and performances.

    "Ashley Cole's experience will mean he should get the nod ahead of Luke Shaw even though he hasn't played much this season."

  16.  
    League Two update

    We have new leaders in League Two. Rochdale lost Matthew Lund to a red card - after he picked up a second booking for over-celebrating a goal - but still won 3-0 at relegation-threatened Northampton, whose six-match unbeaten record came to an end.

    Dale move above Chesterfield, who lose the leadership after a 2-1 defeat to their former boss John Sheridan at Plymouth, who move into the play-off places.

    Result of the night was at Accrington, who thumped Morecambe 5-1 to ease their relegation worries, while Wycombe earned a point in their battle against the drop with a 1-1 draw at Cheltenham.

    Bottom club Torquay, meanwhile, maintained a hope of survival thanks to Ashley Yeoman's last-minuet winner, as they beat Bury 2-1 at Plainmoor.

  17.   
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "I was very disappointed with Galatasaray, it's the Champions League, at least have a bit of a go. Too many old heads and old legs, although John Terry and Frank Lampard were brilliant on the night.

    "Willian and Eden Hazard going forward, closing down their work rate was off the scale, you can see why Juan Mata was let go.

    "There are certain things you have to have in your locker and he didn't have that. One thing is maybe Jose Mourinho should have taken Oscar off earlier with Arsenal at the weekend."

  18. 21:46: 

    Amazing scenes at Wigan - who led 1-0 in the 82nd minute and ended up drawing 3-3!

    If there are any fans out there who missed a goal or five after leaving early - let us know...

  19.  
    Championship update

    More drama at Wigan! Luke Ayling has bundled in a 90th-minute equaliser from a corner to secure Yeovil a point from a 3-3 draw. There were five goals in the final eight minutes at the DW Stadium. A crazy finish.

    Jose Riga has finally seen a goal - and a win - in his third game as Charlton boss, with Dorian Dervite scoring late to give them a 1-0 win over Bournemouth and boost their survival hopes.

    Fourth-place QPR have suffered a miserable night at Sheffield Wednesday, losing defender Richard Dunne to a first-half red card before going down 3-0.

  20. 21:46: 
    Player reaction- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard: "It was everything we wanted it to be. It was a tough game, we got a decent result out there and they hardly threatened.

    "Didier Drogba had a chance right at the end but it was a very controlled and very professional performance from all of us."

  21.

    Real Stealth: Pleased with Chelsea's performance. Restoring some pride to the Premier League by going into the quarter-finals.

    Jack Grasby: Not at all surprised, Galatasaray should have stayed at home.

    Benjamin Starkie: Lampard showing why he needs to be on the plane to Brazil. Superb performance.

  22.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "It was very comfortable for Chelsea tonight, they did a job on Galatasaray. The Turkish side offered very little - they never tested Petr Cech.

    "Second half Galatasaray didn't have an out ball and they didn't have an attacking intent, surely that should come from the manager."

    You can listen to commentary of this match on BBC Radio 5 live.

  23.  
    League One update

    League One leaders Wolves's 10-match unbeaten run is over. Kenny Jackett's side have looked pretty much unstoppable over the last couple of months, but have been beaten 2-1 at Crawley, despite taking the lead through James Henry. Billy Clarke and Matt Tubbs got the goals that gave boss John Gregory victory.

    At the other end of the table, Shrewsbury's relegation worries are growing after a 1-0 defeat at Colchester, with Jabo Ibehre getting the only goal.

  24. 21:40: 
    The Last Eight

    We now know six of the last eight sides in the Champions League then.

    Manchester United, Olympiakos, Borussia Dortmund and Zenit St Petersburg are all hoping to join in the fun tomorrow night:

    Chelsea

    Real Madrid

    Barcelona

    PSG

    Bayern Munich

    Atletico Madrid

  25. 21:37: 
    FULL-TIME- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Jose Mourinho gives the thumbs up to Roberto Mancini before strolling away down the tunnel. Didier Drogba has a big hug with John Terry. It's all very cordial as Chelsea cruise into the last eight.

  26.  
    Championship update

    It's feast and famine in the Championship tonight in terms of goals. Suddenly, they're flying in at Wigan, where Ishmael Miller scored twice in four minutes to give Yeovil the lead, before James McArthur equalised almost instantly - and then Byron Webster's own goal put the home side 3-2. Unbelievable.

    What would they give for a goal at The Valley, though? Will Jose Riga ever see a goal as Charlton manager? We're in the closing minutes of his third game as boss, at home to Bournemouth, and he remains on course for a third straight goalless draw.

    Sheffield Wednesday are seeing out a comfortable 3-0 win over 10-man QPR at Hillsborough.

  27.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "If Chelsea would have needed to step it up you felt they could have gone on and scored a couple more goals. It has been an easy night for Chelsea.

    "Credit to Jose Mourinho though, he has set up his side well and they have done the job."

    You can listen to commentary of this match on BBC Radio 5 live.

  28. 21:35: 
    FULL-TIME- Real Madrid 3-1 Schalke (Agg 9-2)

    Easy does it for Real Madrid. They will take some stopping.

  29.   
    BBC Radio 5 liveHAVE YOUR SAY

    Radio 5 live will be taking your calls at full-time tonight. Chelsea fans - are you genuine contenders to win the Champions League or are Galatasaray simply one of the weaker sides left in the competition? How will a run in Europe affect Chelsea's chances of winning the Premier League title?

    David Moyes says he isn't concerned about his future as Manchester United manager but is he the right man to turn around the club's fortunes?

    0500 909 693 is the number to call, lines are open now.

  30. 21:31: 
    FINAL FIVE- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Into the last five minutes, Fernando Torres replaces Samuel Eto'o. Chelsea on their way to ensuring that the Premier League will have at least one side in the last eight.

    Torres is then played in by a fine touch from Eden Hazard, he should square it for Andre Schurrle but goes for goal himself and is kept out by the keeper's knees.

  31.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "It is difficult to assess Chelsea's Champions League prospects as they have faced a poor side who have not offered very much going forwards.

    "But Jose Mourinho has the experience and you wouldn't bet against Chelsea doing a job against one of the big teams in the next round."

    You can listen to commentary of this match on BBC Radio 5 live.

  32. 21:28: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    It's a bit unorthodox from Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, but he keeps out Eden Hazard's rising drive from a tight angle.

    Six minutes left.

  33.  
    League One update

    Crawley remain on course to end League One leaders Wolves's 10-match unbeaten run, as they still hold the 2-1 lead Matt Tubbs gave them at half-time.

    In the division's other game, experienced lower-division goal-poacher Jabo Ibehre has eased Colchester's relegation worries a touch by giving them a 1-0 lead over struggling Shrewsbury.

  34. 21:26: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Real Madrid 3-1 Schalke (Agg 9-2)

    Cristiano Ronaldo in on goal...scuds a left-footer against the base of the post! He's denied a 24th hat-trick for Real. Amazing.

  35. 21:25: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Oscar - who's been very good for Chelsea - comes off and it's Andre Schurrle on.

  36.  
    League Two updates

    Veteran striker Clive Platt is still banging in the goals at the age of 36, and he has equalised for Bury at bottom club Torquay, where it is now 1-1.

    Accrington are having a great night against Morecambe as they bid to pull away from relegation trouble. Defender Tom Aldred's first goal for Stanley has given them a 4-0 lead.

    Elsewhere, 10-man Rochdale are 3-0 up at Northampton, and will go top if Chesterfield - 2-1 down at Plymouth - fall to defeat.

    It's 1-1 at Whaddon Road, with Byron Harrison giving Cheltenham the lead and Dean Morgan equalising for Wycombe with a penalty.

  37. 21:23: 
    Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Oscar and Eden Hazard have linked up well time and again tonight, and they combine again to win a free-kick. Oscar thumps it in and Fernando Muslera fists it away. Here comes a change.

  38. 21:21: 
    Real Madrid 3-1 Schalke (Agg 9-2)

    Real Madrid are not content with nine! They are throwing men forward. They play Barcelona on Sunday don't forget. No sign of Cristiano Ronaldo getting a rest as we enter the final 10 minutes.

  39.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "I don't see Galatasaray taking any chances in the game. They have gone three at the back with wing-backs but I don't see them creating anything."

    You can listen to commentary of this match on BBC Radio 5 live.

  40.  
    Championship update

    Lewis Buxton's drive from the edge of the penalty area has put Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 up against QPR at Hillsborough. It's Buxton's first goal since October 2011, and he looks pretty pleased about it.

    "I look at the players in the QPR side, and there's no fight, no desire," says former Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

    Carlton's not a happy man.

  41. 21:18: 
    GOAL- Real Madrid 3-1 Schalke (Agg 9-2) - Alvaro Morata (76 mins)

    I think Real Madrid are through.

    Cristiano Ronaldo really should have a hat-trick as he pounces on to a rebound, but he cannons a left-foot shot against the underside of the crossbar. Gareth Bale retrieves it with a deft first-time lay-off and Alvaro Morata sweeps home. Two assists for Bale - who started on the bench.

  42. 21:16: 
    GOAL- Real Madrid 2-1 Schalke (Agg 8-2) - Cristiano Ronaldo (74 mins)

    How do you defend against Cristiano Ronaldo? Schalke elect to back off when Ronaldo picks the ball up 40 yards from goal, he just charges in on goal before thundering in a low shot from 20 yards. Brilliant, brilliant goal.

    Paul Thompson: How many times will this competition hold Mancini's career back? Just cannot seem to crack Europe & this year is no different.

    Tunde Akere: Cesar Azpilicueta is a beast. He's virtually kept our legend quiet tonight.

  44. 21:15: 
    Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Into the last 20 minutes at a noisy Stamford Bridge. The quarter-final draw by the way is open, so should Manchester United and Chelsea both go through they could face each other.

    That draw takes place on Friday.

  45.  
    Championship update

    Nick Powell looks to be back up to speed for Wigan following his recent hamstring injury. The on-loan Manchester United forward, making his first start since his return to fitness, has given Uwe Rosler's play-off hopefuls a 1-0 lead over relegation-threatened Yeovil.

    We're still awaiting the first goal of the Jose Riga era at Charlton. The Belgian coach drew his first two games in charge 0-0, and it remains goalless against Bournemouth tonight.

    Sheffield Wednesday are 2-0 up on a QPR side down to 10 men after the first-half sending off of defender Richard Dunne.

  46. 21:10: 
    YELLOW CARD- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    The Galatasaray support are making a tremendous din inside Stamford Bridge - which in turn gees up the Chelsea fans. Great noise now as Frank Lampard ghosts on to Oscar's left-wing cross but puts his header right at Fernando Muslera.

    Didier Drogba then does get his name in referee Felix Brych's book - but not in the manner he would have wanted. He's booked for a niggly foul.

  47.  
    League Two update

    A mixed night for Rochdale's Matthew Lund, who scored for his side at Northampton, and was then sent off after picking up a second yellow card for over-celebrating. Not that it seems to have put Dale off their stride, as Joe Bunney has since found the net to give them a 3-0 lead.

    It's all happening at Home Park too, where PFA chairman Ritchie Humphreys brought leaders Chesterfield level, only for Reuben Reid to score his second of the night and put Plymouth 2-1 up.

    Dean Winnard has given Accrington a 3-0 lead at home to Morecambe, while Torquay are 1-0 up against Bury, and Cheltenham's match against Wycombe is goalless.

  48. 21:08: 
    CLOSE!- Real Madrid 1-1 Schalke (Agg 7-2)

    Free-kick 25 yards out for Real, a real head-scratcher for the goalkeeper who has Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth bale to worry about. Where do you stand?

    It's Ronaldo who does take it, the ball flicking off the wall and glancing the roof of the net on its way over. Very nearly a second goal for the Portuguese maestro.

  49.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "John Terry and Gary Cahill have been excellent all night so far and all season."

    You can listen to commentary of this match on BBC Radio 5 live.

  50. 21:04: 
    Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Roy Hodgson watches on from the stands, he may be leaving soon enough - this game has really fallen off a cliff. No real intensity or pressure from Galatasaray, who have not had an effort on target in the first hour of this game. They look nowhere near scoring the two they need.

  51.  
    Championship update

    Leon Best has given Sheffield Wednesday a 2-0 lead at home to QPR, turning away from his marker to slot in from 12 yards after gathering Oguchi Onyewu's low cross.

    "It's nothing more than Sheffield Wednesday deserve," says former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra. "Leon Best's looked sharp. He picked up a bad injury at Blackburn, but he looks strong and he looks hungry.

    "QPR are standing still. Look at Joey Barton, just jogging back. Look at Ravel Morrison jogging back. These are highly-paid footballers in a division they should be winning by a country mile.

    "I don't like Ravel Morrison. He's had a poor game. He's been waving his arms around and giving it the body language. Good players don't do that. You don't try to embarrass your team-mates."

    Elsewhere, Wigan's match against Yeovil remains 0-0, as does Charlton's home game against Bournemouth.

    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "This game goes to show how important it is to win your group, if Alvaro Negredo had scored for Manchester City against Bayern Munich when he had the chance they wouldn't have had to face Barcelona and may not have gone out."

  54. 21:01: 
    Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Chelsea looking a slick outfit on the counter-attack, as Galatasaray try in vain to find a goal to keep the tie alive. Oscar hits a decent effort from range but it's wide of the near post.

    Just over half an hour to go.

  55. 20:58: 
    Real Madrid 1-1 Schalke (Agg 7-2)

    Another threatening run from Cristiano Ronaldo almost sees a second goal for Real Madrid - but after a smart turn Isco's shot is charged down.

  56.  
    League Two update

    We could have new leaders in League Two tonight as things stand, with third-placed Rochdale 1-0 up at Northampton thanks to a sixth-minute goal from former Cobblers midfielder Ian Henderson.

    A win will take Dale to the summit if current leaders Chesterfield lose at Plymouth, and they trail 1-0 at the break to Reuben Reid's goal.

    Accrington can give themselves a little breathing space in the relegation battle by beating Morecambe, who they lead 2-0 at half-time. Bottom club Torquay - eight points adrift of safety at the start of play - are just about keeping alive their survival hopes, as they are 1-0 up against Bury.

    Wycombe, hovering just above the drop zone, are drawing 0-0 at Cheltenham.

  57. 20:56: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Real Madrid 1-1 Schalke (Agg 7-2)

    Sensational goalkeeping. Gordon Banks style save from Ralf Fahrmann as he somehow turns a header from Cristiano Ronaldo up and over the bar. Ronaldo can't believe it, I'm not sure Fahrmann could really...

  58.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "Eden Hazard should have taken the shot on earlier, it was a brilliant run across the field by the Belgian but after he passed it in the end Chelsea got crowded out"

    You can listen to commentary of this match on BBC Radio 5 live.

  59. 20:53: 
    Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    What a run from Eden Hazard! Ronaldo-esque as he picks it up on the left wing, is shown inside by the Gala defence and obliges, keeps driving past two, three, four players before finding Samuel Eto'o in the area.

    He lays it off to Oscar, who is wrapped up by a thunderous block challenge. Willian then tests Fernando Muslera after good work from Frank Lampard. Chelsea starting brightly.

  60. 20:51: 
    Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Galatasaray have switched to a 3-5-2 at the interval - I recall Roberto Mancini doing that often while in charge of Manchester City - which may be music to Eden Hazard's ears. Give him width and space at your peril.

  61.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "So far this has not really been a big test for Chelsea in Europe, Galatasaray have not offered very much in the first half.

    "Chelsea have been careful so far and they need to continue to do that"

  62. 20:49: 
    KICK-OFF- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Oscar to Samuel Eto'o - and Chelsea get us back rolling at Stamford Bridge. No changes for Chelsea or Gala.

  63. 20:48: 
    KICK-OFF- Real Madrid 1-1 Schalke (Agg 7-2)

    Real Madrid - who have replaced Xabi Alonso with Casemiro at the break - kick-off.

    Matthew Hobbs: Chelsea have been poor recently in the second half. One goal back and it's bound to get nervy.

    Steve Johnson: Chelsea will play possession football in the second half. They are masters at this when they need to be and they will win.

    Kuntal Majumdar: Mourinho is the greatest manager of this generation. He can turn any squad into a trophy winning squad. Period.

  65.  
    League One update

    Crawley have come back from a goal down to lead League One table-toppers Wolves 2-1 at half-time, with Billy Clarke and Matt Tubbs scoring after James Henry had given Kenny Jackett's side the lead.

    Relegation-threatened Shrewsbury, who gained a creditable 0-0 draw at Molineux on Saturday, are halfway to another one at Colchester, who are sliding towards trouble themselves after winning just one of their last nine before tonight.

  66. 20:41: 
    Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Two second-half goals for Galatasaray would send them through, but Chelsea can be confident enough. The Blues haven't conceded more than once at home in a knockout game since the 4-4 draw with Liverpool in 2009.

    Who are the last five clubs to score more than one goal in a knockout tie at Stamford Bridge? Barca, Bayern, Barca, Liverpool, Liverpool

  67.  
    Championship update

    Sheffield Wednesday are good value for their 1-0 half-time lead over a poor QPR, given to them by Chris Maguire's 35th-minute penalty. Rangers, though, are unhappy that Richard Dunne was given a straight red card for a professional foul on Leon Best as he conceded the spot-kick.

    Former Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer, commentating for BBC Radio Sheffield and Radio 5 live sports extra, has this to say: "Sheffield Wednesday have been totally dominant in the first half, yet they haven't put the game to bed.

    "I've been very disappointed with QPR. If people are putting Ravel Morrison in Paul Gascoigne's class, they're on a different planet on the evidence of what I've seen in the first 45 minutes."

    Wigan's Jordi Gomez has seen a penalty saved against Yeovil, where it's 0-0 at the break, as it is in the match between Charlton and Bournemouth.

  68.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveHALF-TIME- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "Chelsea couldn't capitalise in the first half in Turkey, but they have so far tonight. Galatasaray don't have much to trouble Chelsea, Chelsea could get three or four tonight.

    "Chelsea's back four have been very well organised by John Terry and Ramires is dropping in to cover for the full-backs when needed.

    "When Galatasaray have had their better moments Didier Drogba has been involved but they haven't been able to get him in the game enough".

    You can listen to commentary of this match on BBC Radio 5 live.

  69. 20:34: 
    Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    Galatasaray may have had more of the ball in that first half - 53.8% - but couldn't muster a single shot on target. Chelsea hit the target five times, scoring twice, and as a result are all set to reach the quarter-finals.

    ChelseaWarrior: Barring a monumental collapse, we are in the quarters. You are welcome, Britain.

    Paul Thompson: That goal was purely down to Oscar's persistence and work rate to win a corner. The characteristics of a typical Jose team. Utter domination.

    Chelsea v Galatasaray
  72.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1)

    "A wonderful attacking header from John Terry, the corner was tailor made for him, Fernando Muslera could possibly have done better with the save but and Gary Cahill finished well.

    "Galatasaray have created their own downfall at times. Chelsea have not had to do too much to be two ahead."

    League Two update

    One score to bring you up to date with in League Two - leaders Chesterfield are trailing 1-0 to play-off hopefuls Plymouth, thanks to a goal from Reuben Reid, once of West Brom.

    Third-placed Rochdale remain 1-0 up at Northampton, while Accrington lead Morecambe 2-0, and bottom club Torquay - in the news for the wrong reasons over the last week after midfielder Joss Labadie received a 10-match ban for biting - lead Bury by a single goal.

    League One update

    League One leaders Wolves' 10-match unbeaten run is under threat thanks to a chipped finish from Matt Tubbs. The striker's seventh goal in eight games hs given Crawley a 2-1 lead over Kenny Jackett's side. Colchester's game against Shrewsbury remains goalless.

  76. 20:27: 
    GOAL- Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray (Agg 3-1) - Gary Cahill (43 mins)

    Galatasaray could do worse than put Didier Drogba at centre-back. Woeful defending as John Terry is allowed a 10-yard run to meet a corner with a powerful header, Fernando Muslera can only parry the ball into the six-yard box and Gary Cahill smashes the loose ball into the roof of the net. You've got to be marking John Terry surely...

  77. 20:26: 
    YELLOW CARD- Chelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    Jose Mourinho is left shaking his head as Oscar goes into the book for a heavy challenge. He won the ball but collected his man on the way.

  78.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    "Everything that Chelsea are doing well is coming through Oscar and Eden Hazard. That was wonderful play from Hazard they just couldn't find the correct finish from Willian to seal the move."

    SITTER!- Real Madrid 1-1 Schalke (Agg 7-2)

    Another sitter at the Bernabeu - but this time it's Schalke, who should really be ahead! Max Meyer sends in Klaas-Jan Huntelaar with a peach of a through pass but the Dutchman gets his angles all wrong and pulls a shot wide with only Iker Casillas to beat.

    The Germans need to score another five to go through...

  80. 20:23: 
    CLOSE!- Chelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    Brilliant football from Chelsea as they put together a slick attack down the left, Samuel Eto'o poking the ball into the path of Willian, but the Brazilian fluffs his connection and can't find a way past Fernando Muslera in the Gala goal. Seven minutes of the half remain.

  81.  
    Championship update

    Drama at Hillsborough, where Chris Maguire converts a penalty to given Sheffield Wednesday a 1-0 lead at home to QPR - who are down to 10 men, with centre-back Richard Dunne sent off for a professional foul on Leon Best that led to the spot-kick award.

    "I really didn't think it was a red card. It was a stonewall penalty, but there were defenders coming round," says former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer on Radio 5 live sports extra.

    Wigan have passed up a chance to take the lead at home to Yeovil, with Jordi Gomez seeing a penalty saved by keeper Marek Stech after defender Matteo Lanzoni fouled Nick Powell. It remains 0-0, which is also the score at The Valley, where Charlton are facing Bournemouth.

  82. 20:21: 
    Chelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    Stamford Bridge goes respectfully quiet, Six Nations style, as Didier Drogba lines up a free-kick for Galatasray 35 yards or so out. The big man takes his time before slamming a shot way over the bar, hitting a banner which reads 'Drogba Legend.' Sheepish is the word for his retreat...

    Big chance! Frank Lampard's free-kick picks out John Terry attacking the front post and he lashes a left-footed volley over the bar.

  85.  
    League One update

    Two quick goals at Broadfield Stadium, where James Henry gave League One leaders Wolves a 25-minute lead at Crawley, only for Billy Clarke to beat visitors keeper Carl Ikeme to make it 1-1.

    No goals so far at Colchester, where Shrewsbury are looking to pull themselves towards a position of safety.

  86. 20:15: 
    GOAL- Real Madrid 1-1 Schalke (Agg 7-2) - Tim Hoogland (31 mins)

    You can't back off Tim Hoogland from 25 yards. Real Madrid give the Schalke right-back the freedom of the park to waltz down the middle and his low shot takes a massive deflection off Sergio Ramos to trickle into the bottom corner. The defender looks almost embarrassed to celebrate.

  87. 20:11: 
    SITTER!- Real Madrid 1-0 Schalke (Agg 7-1)

    Cristiano Ronaldo now has 12 goals in this season's Champions League. The record in any one season is 14 - and Real should be two up! Gareth Bale again skins his man for fun before setting it up on a plate for Alvaro Morata.

    Morata has the whole goal to aim at but shins his effort wide from seven yards! Where were you Ronnie?

  88.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    "They look very poor at the back Galatasaray, I think Chelsea can get a second goal in this period and if they do it will be virtually game over."

  89. 20:10: 
    Chelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    Chelsea have been a bit deep since going ahead but they break with pace and conviction, and Oscar is almost clean through on goal but he takes a slightly heavy touch. Eden Hazard thuds a low shot at Fernando Muslera before Samuel Eto'o gallops clear only to see the offside flag raised.

    So far, so good for the Blues.

    Championship update

    No goals so far in the Championship, where Wigan forward Nick Powell - on loan from Manchester United - is looking to make an impact on his first start since returning from a hamstring injury sustained at the end of January. They're being held 0-0 by a stubborn Yeovil side.

    Clint Hill has gone closest so far for QPR at Sheffield Wednesday, heading wide from a Joey Barton free-kick, while new Charlton boss Jose Riga - facing Bournemouth in his third game in charge - is still waiting for a first goal at either end after two goalless draws.

  92. 20:06: 
    GOAL- Real Madrid 1-0 Schalke (Agg 7-1) - Cristiano Ronaldo (22 mins)

    Easy, easy, easy does it! You try and stop this Real front three. Alvaro Morata toes a ball into the path of Gareth Bale on the right-hand side of the area, he plays a first-time pass perfectly into the path of Cristiano Ronaldo, who bundles home his 40th goal of the season. Forty!

  93.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    "A good start from Chelsea. The early goal has helped that, but the way that Willian, Eden Hazard and Oscar work so hard is very impressive."

  94. 20:02: 
    YELLOW CARD- Chelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    Didier Drogba has his first shot of the night - and it's well off target. He flies into a scissor kick and shanks his shot over the bar.

    Gala midfielder Felipe Melo then goes airborne as he tries to evade a tackle theatrically, before he does get booked for a rash challenge of his own. Should the Turks make it into the last eight, Melo will now be banned.

  95.  
    League Two update

    Third-placed Rochdale are first off the mark in League Two, with Ian Henderson giving them a sixth-minute lead away to his former club Northampton - with whom he spent a season-and-a-half without scoring a single goal.

    Meanwhile, Northampton's relegation rivals Accrington are 2-0 up on Morecambe thanks to Lee Molyneux and a Kal Naismith penalty, while Lee Mansell has given bottom club Torquay an eight-minute lead at home to Bury. Leaders Chesterfield are goalless at Plymouth, as are Cheltenham at home to Wycombe.

  96. 20:01: 
    Real Madrid 0-0 Schalke (Agg 6-1)

    No major chances to report in Madrid - and you suspect Schalke will be delighted with that. Real cruising into the last eight.

  97.   
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    "It's brilliant organisation from the Chelsea defence, always in a line and well marshalled by John Terry."

    You can listen to commentary of this match on BBC Radio 5 live.

  98. 19:58: 
    Chelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    Didier Drogba's first real action on the pitch as he beats Cesar Azpilicueta easily to a cross, his header down is firm but Chelsea do well to sweep away. More possession and play from the Turkish side in the last few minutes. An away goal would change everything.

  99. 19:56: 
    Chelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    It's a strong start from Samuel Eto'o, breaking the last line of defence again to skip clear, he has no support though and can only find a red and orange shirt with his cutback. Chelsea looking well in the opening 12 minutes.

    Samuel Eto'o
  100. 19:53: 
    Chelsea 1-0 Galatasaray (Agg 2-1)

    And now an injury problem for Chelsea as Ramires, who is already wearing a phantom of the opera style mask, goes down clutching his cheek after an aerial challenge. Right on the cheekbone.

    He looks like he will be able to continue though. Galatasaray must score now to stay in the tie.

  101. 19:53: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Real Madrid 0-0 Schalke (Agg 6-1)

    Jese is no more. He hasn't been able to recover from that early knock so the Welsh Galactico Gareth Bale is indeed on inside seven minutes.

    Any early nerves are well and truly quelled at Stamford Bridge as Samuel Eto'o fires Chelsea ahead! Oscar and Eden Hazard link up well to free the Cameroon striker, his touch is sound and he rattles in a quick shot which creeps under the body of goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. Should he have held that? Chelsea don't care.

    Eto'o
  105. 19:48: 
    Real Madrid 0-0 Schalke (Agg 6-1)

    Real Madrid winger Jese is down in a heap after an early challenge down by the corner flag - maybe we'll see Gareth Bale early on after all.

    League Two preview

    There's significant action wherever you look in League Two this evening, with leaders Chesterfield and third-placed Rochdale in action, along with four of the bottom five.

    Dale - beaten at bottom club Torquay seven days ago - travel to second-from-bottom Northampton, who are making a spirited push for safety thanks to a six-match unbeaten run under manager Chris Wilder. Victory for the Cobblers this evening would pile the pressure on Wycombe and Accrington - both only three points above the relegation zone. Wycombe are at Cheltenham tonight, while Accrington host Morecambe.

    Chesterfield, a point clear at the top, are at play-off hopefuls Plymouth - managed by former Spireites boss John Sheridan. At the foot of the table, Torquay host Bury.

  118. 19:29:

    You won't see many better receptions for a former player than the one afforded to Didier Drogba tonight. He kissed most of the club staff on his way from the bus to the changing rooms and was greeted with a huge ovation as he started his warm-up.

    League One leaders Wolves are making their first visit to Crawley with the aim of reasserting themselves after a nine-game winning streak ended with a 0-0 draw against Shrewsbury at Molineux on Saturday.

    Shrewsbury are three points adrift of safety, having won just one league match out of eight since Mike Jackson replaced Graham Turner as boss in January, but their point against Wolves has given them hope as they face an away game at Colchester - themselves only two points above the drop zone.

    Championship preview

    Three games in the Championship tonight, where the focus is on the play-off race and the relegation battle. Fourth-placed QPR's automatic promotion hopes in the Championship pretty much disappeared after they failed to win a game in February, but they are looking to strengthen their grip on a play-off spot tonight away to a Sheffield Wednesday side who have dragged themselves away from relegation trouble under Stuart Gray since the turn of the year.

    FA Cup semi-finalists Wigan, one position below QPR, are looking for a ninth straight win in all competitions as they host next-to-bottom Yeovil, who have won just once away from home since the beginning of December.

    Charlton - also in the relegation scrap - seek their first victory under new boss Jose Riga and are at home to mid-table Bournemouth.

    "Along with Alan Shearer, Didier Drogba was one of the best centre-forwards in the Premier League. He burst onto the scene at Chelsea and had such a wonderful impact on the club.

    "I don't think that one of the teams is going to make a result where people at half-time already know who is going to win.""Everything is in the balance," Mourinho said. "I think it will be that way as we go into the end of the game."

    Didier Drogba

    157 goals (One hundred and fifty seven).

    Eight goals in cup finals, 12 major trophies, 13 goals against Arsenal, 36 goals in the Champions League.

    Didier Drogba's career at Chelsea was quite simply brilliant. He made his debut in 2004 alongside Wayne Bridge, Alexei Smertin and Geremi, and ended it eight years later winning the Champions League beside Juan Mata, Fernando Torres and David Luiz.

    But what is your favourite Drogba memory? His finest goal? Best display? Biggest strop? How did you feel as a Chelsea fan when he was in the side? How did you feel when Drogba was lining up against your side?

    For me, it has to be a goal he scored at Goodison Park once, turning and slamming in a shot on the bounce from 30-odd yards. Tremendous.

    Chelsea v Galatasaray (Agg 1-1)

    Fernando Torres's early away goal in Istanbul last month has put Chelsea in pole position to qualify to the last eight, but it could be a tense evening.

    Defeat at Villa Park at the weekend was not the ideal preparation for Jose Mourinho and his boys, and one more Didier Drogba goal at the Bridge could yet be crucial...

    Didier Drogba

    "He is undoubtedly one of the most important players in the history of the club.

    "All Chelsea supporters, we agree with that."

    So said Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho yesterday as he discussed tonight's return of Didier Drogba.

    The Ivory Coast striker netted 157 goals in 342 appearances during an eight-year spell at Chelsea, famously marking his last kick for the club by tucking away the decisive spot-kick in the penalty shoot-out at the end of the 2012 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

    What a way to bow out. Drogba's place as a Chelsea legend is cemented,

    He wouldn't go and do anything silly like knock them out now. Would he?
