Chelsea through after thriller

Published Add your comment

Chelsea beat the odds to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals thanks to a 4-1 extra-time victory against Napoli.

The west Londoners came into the return leg on the back of a 3-1 defeat in Italy and took a first-half lead through Didier Drogba at Stamford Bridge.

They doubled their advantage two minutes into the second period thanks to a John Terry header, which would have been enough to put the home side through on away goals.
