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.
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. Chelsea free-kick 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.
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.
Selcuk has the ball in plenty of space in the middle of the Chelsea half, he looks to feed either Drogba or Umut in goal but can't decide which and Cech gathers. Pretty much sums up their night.
Chelsea have men forward to attack the free-kick but Lampard appears to be caught in two minds as he skews his delivery straight into the stand behind the goal.
Noise levels inside Stamford Bridge are on the up as the Chelsea fans are starting to think about the quarter-finals. Willian is pulled back by Selcuk and the hosts have a free-kick in a decent crossing position.
It's been a pretty frustrating time for Didier Drogba so far on his Stamford Bridge return and he goes into the book for pegging back Azpilicueta.
CHANCE! Eto'o has an effort blocked on the edge of the area before the ball finds its way to Oscar. He takes it to the byline and looks to get a cross away. Lampard is arriving in the box to meet it but he can only guide his header into the grateful arms of Muslera.
Lampard's corner evades everyone but is kept in play on the opposite side of the pitch. Azpilicueta attempts to seek out Lampard with an ambitious return ball which goes straight behind for a goalkick.
Ramires is blocked off my Melo inside the centre circle and Chelsea have a free-kick which is played wide to Oscar. He gets a cross away but Semih is there again with the block. This time, Chelsea have a corner which Lampard will deliver.
Chelsea look comfortable on the ball and are full of confidence in attack as Lampard and Willian exchange passes before Oscar is played into a wide position. He tries to get a cross away but Semih does well with a strong block which cannons back off Oscar and goes behind for a goalkick.
Melo ushers the ball out for a goalkick under the close watch of Eto'o who chased Willian's through ball.
Galatasaray are just about edging the possession stakes at the the minute, with 51.3 per cent of the ball. They're still yet to have a shot on target though tonight and haven't really looked like scoring.
Ivanovic is shown a yellow card for a foul on Drogba as the former Chelsea team-mates challenged for the high ball.
Chelsea have played some great stuff tonight and an excellent move culminates in Melo volleying clear before Oscar works his way into a shooting position and fires wide from a tight angle.
Galatasaray have started this second half with a bit more intent than they showed in the first but with Chelsea's embarrassment of riches in attack, they need to be cautious of getting caught on the break.
Umut is involved for the first time and he's appealing for a penalty after going down under close watch from Azpilicueta as a ball was whipped into the area. His protests fall on deaf ears though as play is waved on.
Chedjou mis-controls a loose pass and Oscar is quick on his heels to take it from him. He looks to feed Hazard but his ball is wayward and the move breaks down.
Oscar has put himself around a fair bit tonight and he hauls down Eboue with another strong challenge as the full-back looked to gallop forward and out of his own half.
CHANCE! Chelsea come close again as Lampard brilliantly latches onto Muslera's poor kick before striding forward and unlocking the Galatasaray defence with a ball to Willian. His strike is powerful but it's a comfortable height for Muslera who is able to hold it.
CHANCE! A dazzling run from Hazard sees him glide up the pitch and into the area where he toys with the Galatasaray defence. Instead of shooting, he opts to take it to the byline and lays it inside for Eto'o. With his back to goal, Eto'o tees up Oscar but his strike is blocked in front of goal.
Oscar picks up the loose ball and Chelsea start the second half as they ended the first - with Galatasaray pegged back. Cahill looks to feed Oscar but Melo stands strong to clear his lines.
An early Chelsea attack comes to nothing as Eboue muscles in front of Eto'o and smacks it against the striker's legs to win his side a throw by the corner flag.
No changes for either side at the break but Galatasaray have altered their shape slightly with Melo dropping into defence to allow Telles and Eboue to get forward from the full-back positions.
A final email before we get back underway and Hamzah Akhlaq says: "The legend Didier Drogba is back! Chelsea are playing very well, especially the defence."
Nicholas O'Keeffe emails to says: "An impressive half from Chelsea. Could be 2 or 3 more goals in this game. Tie's not over yet though, especially with Drogba on the pitch. Come in Chelsea!!!!"
On the email, Chris Green says: "Drogba has been very disappointing so far!" While Jordan Hucks adds: "I can't see Galatasaray going very far tonight... It's all Chelsea!"
HT: The referee signals for half-time and Chelsea lead 2-0 on the night (3-1 on aggregate). They look good value for it too with goals at both ends of the half. Samuel Eto'o fired in the opener after four minutes, before Gary Cahill slammed in a second just minutes before the break. 2-0.
Neither Hazard nor Azpilicueta can find a way past Eboue down the left who stands firm to break down that Chelsea attack.
Galatasaray have offered little throughout this half and they seem more concerned with roughing up Chelsea in the tackle as opposed to actually creating opportunities. Take nothing away from Chelsea though, they've been clinical in front of goal.
You can't say it hasn't been coming and Chelsea now look to be cruising into the quarter-finals. Credit has to go to Oscar for chasing a lost cause and winning the initial corner which lead to the goal. Terry was allowed to get his header away far too easily, he forced a decent save from Muslera but Cahill emphatically applied the finish.
GOAL! Gary Cahill doubles Chelsea's lead, slamming home from close range after Muslera had palmed Terry's header into his path! 2-0.
Lampard sprays a cross-field ball looking for the run of Oscar. It appears to be too heavy but Oscar somehow manages to hook it off the legs of Telles for a corner.
Oscar goes into the book for Chelsea following a strong challenge on Selcuk in the middle of the park. Jose Mourinho thinks he got the ball but the referee is having none of it.
That was another good move from Chelsea who are starting to dominate proceedings and look like scoring with every attack.
CHANCE! Hazard is set free down the left and he plays it inside for Eto'o in the box with his back to goal. He holds it up and spots the run of Willian storming forward. Eto'o tees him up but Willian can't quite connect with it and the ball is gathered by Muslera.
Drogba does indeed go for goal but he absolutely balloons it some way over the bar. The Stamford Bridge crowd applaud him for the sheer audacity which they still love him for.
Ivanovic is all over Drogba at the other end and Galatasaray have a free-kick in a decent position. Drogba stands over it, shaping up as though he's going to go for goal. Surely he's too far out...
Ivanovic looks to meet Lampard's corner at the near post. He climbs substantially but can't quite get the touch required and Galatasaray are able to clear.
Chelsea have a corner which Lampard will take, out-swinging from the right. The Blues have piled men forward again.
CHANCE! Lampard's free-kick is inch-perfect as it looks for the run of Terry who has peeled away from his marker. On the turn, Terry goes for the first time volley but can only hook it inches over the bar. Decent effort for a centre back though.
Selcuk is late with his challenge on Hazard and Chelsea have a free-kick with the chance to get a ball into the box with defenders forward.
Roberto Mancini is bellowing instructions at his team from the touchline. They've lacked any kind of attacking threat so far, making Chelsea's lead a pretty comfortable one at the minute. We have seen plenty of bite in their challenges but that's about it.
Terry is unmarked in the area as he heads a floated free-kick back inside towards Oscar. He attempts to guide it back towards Terry but it's slightly heavy and the Chelsea captain can only watch it roll behind.
Galatasaray have their first real sight of goal following some smart build-up play on the edge of the area. The ball eventually finds its way to the feet of Melo who looks to strike but can only drag his effort harmlessly wide.
Ramires profits from the slip of Sneijder and looks to kick-start a Chelsea break. He attempts to play Eto'o in on goal but Chedjou has it covered and is able to clear.
Eto'o is down for Chelsea after being caught by Chedjou who followed through with his attempted clearance. The striker has also been impressive so far for the Blues.
It's been a very positive last few minutes for Chelsea. Oscar, Willian and Hazard are all seeing plenty of the ball and their movement is too much for Galatasaray to handle.
Willian plays a clever ball over the top for Oscar who can't quite get hold of the ball to find himself through on goal. He decides to hold it up and lays off Hazard who, again, can only find the arms of Muslera with his strike.
Hazard is causing all sorts of problems and another surging run takes him down the left wing and towards the byline, he looks to cut a low ball inside but it's straight into the grateful arms of Muslera.
CHANCE! Chelsea break down the right and Hazard is pulling the strings. He exchanges passes with Oscar, who neatly flicks it back to him, before storming into the area and centering it for Lampard. He attacks it with an outstretched leg but can only poke it over the bar. Great move.
Muslera launches a free-kick forward from inside his own half but Chelsea regain possession and look to attack.
Ivanovic and Oscar can't quite combine down the right before Ramires almost finds a way through on goal. Galatasaray have bodies back though and are able to clear.
Rather predictably, Felipe Melo is the first player to go into the book following that foul on Willian. He will now miss Galatasaray's next game in Europe.
Willian tries to break down the middle after a Galatasaray attack broke down, but Melo comes across with a cynical foul to halt his progress. Chelsea free-kick.
There has been little to report on in terms of action in front of goal since Eto'o's opener. It's been a rather physical start to the game and Felipe Melo has put in a number of crunching tackles, this time Azpilicueta is on the receiving end and he hobbles sheepishly away.
Drogba tries the spectacular as his acrobatic effort flies well over the bar from the edge of the area. It was a pretty ambitious effort in reality but it's clear that the former Chelsea striker is fancying his chances tonight.
The visitors certainly look a threat and Telles, the left-back, is bombing forward at every opportunity. On the opposite flank, Azpilicueta is forced to come across and challenge Eboue who had looked to combine with Drogba.
Drogba holds off the challenge of Azpilicueta before feeding Melo who sweeps the ball out wide to Sneijder. He plays Telles in down the right and he sits a ball up towards the back post for Drogba to attack. He rises above Azpilicueta to meet it but his downward header into the area is hoofed clear by Terry.
Eto'o is found behind the Galatasaray defence and he takes the ball to the byline as he waits for support. Chelsea throw men forward but Galatasary have their lines covered and the move breaks down.
A lovely bit of skill takes Hazard away from Eboue and the former Arsenal man hacks him down to concede a free-kick just inside the Chelsea half. Plenty of strong challenges from both sides in these early stages.
Ramires is back on his feet and looks as though he will be able to continue. He's already wearing a protective face mask so it wasn't too comfortable for him without that knock. Play resumes.
Ramires is down for Chelsea after the stray arm of Selcuk caught him as the two battled for the ball. Worrying for the hosts as he receives treatment on the pitch.
At the other end, Drogba is flagged for offside as his effort is straight into the arms of Cech. All the noise in these early stages is coming from the travelling fans who have not been silenced by that opener. It's a massive task for their side now though.
They got off to a flyer in Turkey but that is even better from Chelsea. Hazard started the move, feeding Oscar on the right. The Brazilian slid a ball through for Eto'o to chase and the sheer power of his strike was too much for Muslera who couldn't get a strong enough hand on it.
GOAL! It's a dream start for Chelsea as Samuel Eto'o avoids the offside trap to latch onto Oscar's through ball and fire them into the lead from a tight angle! 1-0
Terry climbs well to get a header away as Drogba looked to latch onto the long ball. Moments later, Cech is then forced off his line to clear up after Drogba looked to thread Burak in on goal, but his pass was too heavy.
Oscar is clattered just ahead of the halfway line by a thundering Felipe Melo challenge and Chelsea have an early free-kick which they will play short. Any other point in the game and Melo would surely have gone into the book for that.
Jose Mourinho and Didier Drogab enjoy a quick embrace before kick-off and Galatasaray get us underway at Stamford Bridge!
Right then, the teams are out of the tunnel and we're minutes away from kick-off at Stamford Bridge. It's Chelsea v Galatasaray and a place in the Champions League quarter-finals awaits the winner. Feel free to send any thoughts during the game to @ryanparrish1919 on Twitter or email@example.com and I'll try and get through some at half-time.
Didier Drogba has been presented with a silver boot by Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay on the Stamford Bridge pitch, receiving a rousing ovation from all corners of the ground before heading into the tunnel for his side's final preparations. All eyes will be on him tonight, it's as though he has to score.
If you're fancying a bet on tonight's game, our friends over at Sky Bet have it covered with a number of Price Boosts. A 3-1 Chelsea win is 14/1, while Didier Drogba to score first is 11/1. The Blues are strong favourites at 4/11, the draw is 4/1 and a shock away win is 8/1.
Our friends at Opta also have plenty of Galatasaray stats: Didier Drogba has scored more goals than any other player at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League (17). Galatasaray have conceded 15 goals in the Champions League this season, the highest tally among the 16 teams who have reached the knockout stages. Galatasaray have never won in England in eight trips in all competitions (D3 L5).
A couple of Chelsea stats courtesy of Opta then with kick-off around 15 minutes away: The Blues have scored in each of their last 12 Champions League games at home. Manchester Utd were the last opposing side to keep a clean sheet at Stamford Bridge in the competition on 6 April 2011. Chelsea have only conceded four goals in the Champions League this season, only Atletico Madrid have shipped fewer.
Plenty of shouts for Chelsea tonight and Alex Samuels is the same. He says: "I can only really see a blue win tonight. I think Drogba will score a goal or 2 but Eto'o will be the hero of the night with a 3-1 win to Chelsea. 3-2 on aggregate."
Oliver Wood emails to says: "I think it'll be a close contest tonight! Didier will grab a goal on his return to the bridge but the blues will come out as 2-1 winners on the night! Goals from Hazard and Etoo! COME ON YOU BLUES!!!"
Chris Green has emailed again to ask: "Despite not having the strongest squad in the competition, do you think the Blues have a chance of winning this season's Champions League?" There were few backing them in 2012 and with the Mourinho factor, you can never rule them out. Bayern, Barca, Real Madrid and maybe even PSG will fancy their chances though. I'll stay impartial and see what everyone else thinks...! @ryanparrish1919 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feel free to keep your emails and Tweets coming! You can find me on Twitter: @ryanparrish1919 or email email@example.com and I'll endeavour to get them posted in the build-up to kick-off.
The two sides have met previously in the Champions League - when they were drawn in the same group in 1999 - with Chelsea winning both games. Dan Petrescu netted the only goal in a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge, while Tore Andre Flo (2), Gianfranco Zola, Dennis Wise and Gabriele Ambrosetti all got in on the act in a 5-0 win in Turkey.
The game also marks Roberto Mancini's return to English football following his departure from Manchester City in the summer, but he does not have history on his side as Galatasaray have never won on English soil.
Galatasaray are currently second in the Turkish Super Lig, five points behind leaders Fenerbahce, and they could only draw 0-0 away to Karabukspor on Friday night. They scraped through Group B of this competition, beating Juventus 1-0 in the final game to reach the knock-out stages.
Cian Hughes is our first emailer of the night backing an upset. He says: "Exciting game tonight! Can't wait to watch Drogba return to the Bridge! Galatasaray are a very good team and I've seen people already who have written them off this tie! I think they can knock Chelsea out tonight! 2-3 to Galatasaray!"
Drogba is out of contract in Turkey at the end of the season and Jose Mourinho has fuelled speculation of a Chelsea return this week. He said: "I think it has to happen one day. When, I don't know - as a player, as a coach, as an ambassador - next year, in four or five years, in 10 years - I don't know."
Chelsea icon Didier Drogba will lead the line against his former club and he returns to Stamford Bridge for the first team since departing in 2012. The Ivorian striker netted 157 goals in his eight-year spell with the Blues and his final touch in a Chelsea shirt proved to be his most crucial as he netted the winning penalty against Bayern Munich to lift this trophy almost two years ago.
Chris Green is another backing a home win. He says: "Chelsea to win 3-0, with Lampard (2) and Hazard scoring the goals." Sean Wallace agrees, saying: "As a Chelsea fan I hope we can go through, I think we will win comfortably however I think it's written in the stars for Drogba to score tonight back at his home ground Stamford Bridge. I think it will be hazard 1st goal and 3-1 Chelsea."
Thanks to George Grant who has emailed in to say: "With no Matic in the midfield we'll lose our ability to stamp our control on that area. However, I still see us going through. Hopefully tonight is the night Oscar comes out of his shell. 1 - 0 , "old-man" Eto'o with the goal."
Since that Villa Park defeat, Jose Mourinho has dominated the headlines for his sending-off, but while that loss dented his title hopes, he is looking to make history in this competition and become the first coach to win it with three different sides.
Chelsea are looking to bounce back from the weekend's disappointing defeat at Aston Villa and their home form in Europe certainly suggests they can do just that, having not lost at Stamford Bridge since 2011. Galatasaray have won just 1 of their last 10 away games while the Blues have won 14 of 16 at home.
The two sides met at the Turk Telekom Arena three weeks ago and there was little to separate them in a closely-fought 1-1 draw. Fernando Torres got the Blues off to a dream start, opening the scoring after just nine minutes, but Aurelien Chedjou's second-half leveller gave hope to Roberto Mancini's men.
Jonty (@jontytatchell) says: "Chelsea should be able to get the win. 2-1 with hazard (2) and drogba to score. Good to see him back!!" While (@kaichappell25) has also Tweeted: "Chelsea victory on the cards and hazard goal definitely; 3-1 on the night, 4-2 agg."
Arthur Weaver (@arfchelsea) on Twitter is also backing a home win. He says: "Difficult game tonight, If Chelsea can get an early goal we should be ok 2-0. If Galatasaray get the first goal 0-1 #CFC."
On Twitter, James Mardle (@James_Mardle) says: "Don't expect too much out of tonight. With Chelsea coming off a loss it will be tight, but I see a 2-1 win for Chelsea."
Thanks to all of those who have emailed or Tweeted so far, I'll try my best to get through them all! Dean Coad says: "Chelsea have the edge on the Turkish side but surely can't rule out Drogba scoring on what was home soil for soo many years! I'm going for a 3-1 home win!"
So it's two changes for Chelsea from the side that suffered defeat to Aston Villa at the weekend as Eto'o and Lampard return for Torres and the cup-tied Matic, while David Luiz is back on the bench following a groin problem.
Galatasaray XI v Chelsea: Muslera, Eboue, Semih, Chedjou, Telles, Yekta, Melo, Selcuk, Sneijder, Burak, Drogba.
Chelsea XI v Galatasaray: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Lampard, Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Eto'o.
As always, you can get in touch with your thoughts and score predictions before, during and after the game. Either Tweet me: @ryanparrish1919 or drop a line via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and a selection of the best will be published.
Good evening and welcome to the live and interactive commentary as Chelsea host Galatasaray at Stamford Bridge in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. The tie stands at 1-1 following a draw in Istanbul last month, meaning that the away goal makes Jose Mourinho's side the favourites. Team news will be here shortly...
