UEFA CL: Chelsea held to draw at Galatasaray, as C. Ronaldo scored twice in big Real win (Video HL)


Chelsea blew a golden opportunity to earn a precious first-leg lead in their Champions League last-16 tie against Didier Drogba’s Galatasaray.

The Premier League leaders were firmly in command after Fernando Torres’s early tap-in gave them a deserved lead.

Torres spurned an early second-half chance to double the advantage, before home skipper Selcuk Inan hit the post.

But the Blues then conceded a sloppy equaliser as Aurelien Chedjou converted unmarked from close range.

In other match, Gareth Bale scored twice as Real Madrid hammered Schalke away to all but reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Welshman netted his side’s second after a mazy dribble and added a cool finish for Real’s fifth.

Cristiano Ronaldo beat Joel Matip with a flurry of stepovers for a superb third as he and Karim Benzema also scored twice in a thrilling display.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar’s spectacular injury-time volley pulled a goal back, but the tie seems over as a contest.
