Late goal from Samuel Eto'o 1-0 send victory at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday for a 3-1 aggregate victory.


- Samuel Eto'o 78

**Inter Milan manager Jose Mourinho got his revenge on Chelsea as a late goal from Samuel Eto'o sealed a 1-0 last 16 second leg victory at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday for a 3-1 aggregate victory.

The former Chelsea coach had, prior to the match, promised to forego any personal celebrations as a mark of respect to his old club, but was nevertheless left filled with pride as Inter did a very professional job in west London.

Samuel Eto'o got the only goal of the night with just over 10 minutes remaining to give Inter a 1-0 win and make it an enjoyable return to Stamford Bridge for Mourinho.

Totally off the ball, by the way, that incident, which happened in the middle of the penalty area while Malouda had the ball wide on the left. And Motta certainly fouled Drogba before the possible stamp.

Didier Drogba was sent off late on to end a miserable night for Chelsea for hitting out at Thiago Motta in the box.

Team Line-ups:

Chelsea: Turnbull, Ivanovic, Alex, Terry, Zhirkov, Ballack, Mikel, Lampard, Anelka, Drogba, Malouda. Subs: Taylor, Carvalho, Joe Cole, Kalou, Sturridge, Belletti, Bruma

Inter Milan: Julio Cesar, Maicon, Lucio, Samuel, Zanetti, Cambiasso, Sneijder, Motta, Pandev, Eto'o, Milito. Subs: Toldo, Cordoba, Stankovic, Quaresma, Mariga, Materazzi, Santon
