Chelsea vs. Galatasaray, Champions League: Second Half Game Thread

Mike Hewitt

It took just a few minutes to settle any nerves from all the sideshow around Didier Drogba.  Samuel Eto'o, as he likes to do whenever he's playing at Stamford Bridge, scored just four minutes into the contest.  A goal created by the brilliance of Eden Hazard, who was just getting started.

While the magical Belgian's efforts have yet to be rewarded by a second goal, Chelsea did grab a well-deserved cushion when Gary Cahill smashed home from two yards out after Fernando Muslera saved the initial header from Frank Lampard's corner.  Lampard, incidentally, is having one of his better games in recent memory, as are the trio of Hazard, Oscar, and Wilian.  Meanwhile, Eto'o's looking like 25, rather than 55.

So, two-nil to the good and a very nice performance to boot.  Didier Drogba has looked a bit dangerous on occasion, but so far has been marshaled well enough by Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, and Frank Lampard.

Fourty-five minutes until the quarterfinals.  Let's see this out and maybe grab a third.

Come on Chelsea!
