Welcome to the Independent's live coverage of the Champions League last-16 contest between Chelsea and Galatasaray at Stamford Bridge.
  • Over in Spain, Tim Hoogland makes it 1-1 between Schalke and Real Madrid. The comeback is on...just the six goals required

  • 35 min: And Drogba goes down theatrically for the first time tonight. He challenges Ivanovic with for the ball in the air and falls to win the free-kick. But he skies the free-kick miles over. In fact he hits it so far over it nearly hits a large banner in honour of the striker in the top tier. He must have just seen his face up there and aimed for it..

  • 40 min: A committed challenge from Oscar on Selcuk and he is given a yellow card. Looked to be on the harsh side there from the referee Dr. Felix Brych. Not what the doctor ordered...

  • 2-0 TO CHELSEA! CAHILL SCORES

  • 43 min: The centre backs were central to giving Chelsea one foot in the quarter-finals. From a corner, Terry's header is saved by Muslera, but Cahill is there to score from the rebound.  This cannot go to extra-time now either.

  • HT: Chelsea are almost home and dry. A convincing display in the opening period sees them dominate against Galatasaray and lead 3-1 on aggregate. The Turks have been far from their best tonight, and Drogba is not looking anywhere near the unstoppable target man he was in his days as a Blue. Every Drog has its day...
    3/18/2014 8:33:34 PM
  • 54 min: Galatarasary decide to bite the Bulut. And bring on Umut Bulut for Yilmaz. The Turks desperately need to get back into this one. But will Bulut have the desired impact?

  • Spot the ball: Cahill smashes it in for Chelsea's second

    3/18/2014 9:04:00 PM
  • 60 min: Roberto Manciniis caught on camera reacting in frustration in the Galatasaray dug-out. It's been one of those nights for the former Manchester City manager.
    3/18/2014 9:07:08 PM
  • 65 min: Complete control now from Chelsea. A far easier night's work from Jose Mourinho's team that the Portuguese could have imagined.
    3/18/2014 9:11:49 PM
  • 67 min: Azpilcueta disposes Drogba, who has looked like a shell of the rampaging powerhouse of a forward that the fans at the Bridge remember. In fact, he now just looks Drog tired.
    3/18/2014 9:14:35 PM
  • 71 min: Sneijder sloppily hits a wayward pass acres away from any of his team-mates in an unsuccessful counter-attack. Sums up both his, and Galatasaray's night.
