Gareth Bale scored twice for Real Madrid to win 6-1 away to Schalke, but Roberto Mancini’s Galatasaray held Chelsea 1-1.
The first legs of the Champions League Round of 16 are now complete with two more games this evening.
Carlo Ancelotti can already start enjoying his quarter-final status after Real Madrid demolished Schalke 6-1 in Germany.
Bale netted two great individual goals and Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo also bagged a brace each.
There was scant consolation that Schalke scored the goal of the night with a fantastic volley off the underside of the bar from ex-Milan striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar.
There was another Italian Coach in action tonight, as Mancini’s Galatasaray earned a 1-1 home draw with Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho’s men took an early lead in Istanbul with Fernando Torres turning in a Cesar Azpilicueta assist.
Galatasaray hit the woodwork in the second half with Selcuk Inan and did eventually equalise when Aurelienne Chedjou met a Wesley Sneijder corner.
