  • FT: It's all over at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea have cruised into the quarter-finals thanks to first-half goals from Samuel Eto'o and Gary Cahill. It wasn't quite the return Didier Drogba had hoped for - his side were no match for Mourinho's men and it never looked in doubt. 2-0.

  • We are now into the second of three minutes stoppage time.

  • Kalas replaces Willian for Chelsea with their final change of the night.

  • CHANCE! Drogba almost marks his Stamford Bridge return with the goal that many predicted. Selchuk's free-kick was floated towards the striker who was unmarked. He looked to guide it towards goal but couldn't quite connect as the ball bounced off Ivanovic and into the arms of Cech.

  • Ramires strides forward for Chelsea after picking up the ball from Willian. Schurrle and Torres both want it but the midfielder only has one thing on his mind. He unleashes a strike at goal but loses his footing and his effort flies well wide.

  • CHANCE! hazard plays Torres in on goal with an intelligent back heel and he is denied by the sprawling Muslera who diverts his effort behind for a corner. Torres should have buried that in all honesty.

  • Chelsea make another change as Eto'o leaves the field to a standing ovation and Torres replaces him.

  • Lampard's corner is adjudged to have gone behind and come back in play as he looked to whip a ball into the box. Eto'o then fires well over the bar from range.

  • CHANCE! Some patient build-up play from Chelsea, which involves Lampard, sees the ball worked across to Hazard in space on the edge of the box. He fires towards the bottom corner but Muslera pulls off an impressive stop to push it behind for a corner.

  • Galatasaray are starting to spring into life though as Sneijder and Hajrovic look to find a way through the Chelsea defence with Drogba also lurking. The move eventually breaks down and Terry clears.

  • That was Oscar's final involvement of the night as he is replaced by Schurrle with more goals clearly on the mind of Mourinho.

  • CHANCE! Oscar fires the resulting free-kick towards goal and Muslera is forced to beat it away. Hard to tell if that was a shot or a cross from Oscar but it could have gone anywhere.

  • Hazard finds himself in a dangerous position out wide on the left. He tries to turn away from Chedjou but the Galatasaray man just swipes his legs away which Oscar will take.

  • Telles crosses for Sneijder in the middle but Terry does well to get in front of him and clear with a strong header. Telles is then adjudged to have handled and Chelsea have a free-kick deep inside their own half.

  • Chelsea are preparing their first change of the night with Schurrle getting himself ready.

  • Galatasaray make their final change of the night as Eboue is replaced by Hajrovic.

  • Oscar does well to get a challenge in on Melo but the Galatasaray attack can continue through Selcuk. He looks to play in Umut but Cahill hoofs clear all too easily.

  • Play resumes at Stamford Bridge and Galatasaray bring the ball out of defence before launching it forward and Hazard heads away. They were always the underdogs but the visitors really have been poor tonight. Considering they have Drogba and Sneijder in their team, they've hardly threatened the Chelsea defence.

  • There's a bit of a break in play while Eto'o is down for Chelsea so just a quick update on tonight's other Champions League game as Cristiano Ronaldo has just made it 2-1 to Real Madrid against Schalke. They now lead 8-2 on aggregate.
