Chelsea supporters got to shower former striker Didier Drogba with tons of appreciation before seeing the home side advance to the Champions League quarterfinal after a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge ( 3-1 on aggregate).
Drogba, who scored the winning penalty in a shoot-out against Bayern Munich in the 2012 Champions League final, was kept quiet throughout the match thanks to a great defensive effort from Jose Mourinho’s men.
Chelsea got on the board when Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera failed to handle a Samuel Eto’o effort in the fourth minute. They added a second three minutes before half-time when central defender Gary Cahill poked a loose ball into the net off a Frank Lampard corner.
The second half was rather uneventful, save for a few shaky moments from Muslera, as a deflated-looking Galatasaray could do little to penetrate Chelsea’s defense.
