However, they were unable to score even after bringing the record signing on in the second half, nonetheless the Premiership champions did enough to get through to the next round.

Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid were emphatic 3-0 winners at home to FC Lyon in their encounter.

The Spanish giants had the advantage before the game as they were ahead courtesy of the away goal rule following their 1-1 draw in France a couple of weeks ago.

Christiano Ronaldo started for Madrid after proving his fitness ahead of the clash but it was Marcelo who put Madrid ahead eight minutes before half time with a sublime finish after some nice work by Madrid.

It was all too easy for Madrid and Karim Benzema made it 2-0 in the 65th minute before De Maria made it three and killed of any slight Lyon hope fifteen minutes before the end.

Madrid and Chelsea now join Tottenham, Barcelona, Shaktar Donetsk, Schalke, Manchester United and Bayern Munich in Friday’s draw.
