  • A tense night ensued before Eden Hazard won the day - sealing a 2-1 aggregate victory - with a cracking 90th minute strike.
  • Another trip to Eastern Europe in the round of 16 and Raul Rusescu struck a first-half penalty to give Steaua Bucharest a narrow first leg advantage.
  • Another dramatic night in west London for the return as John Terry nets to make it 2-1 - but the Blues still need another to progress...
  • Cometh the hour, cometh the man - Torres strikes in the 71st minute to secure a 3-1 win on the night and a 3-2 aggregate success.
  • Torres shows his liking for the competition in the quarter-final first leg against Rubin Kazan with a brace in a 3-1 first leg victory.
