Liverpool are in the quarter finals of the Champions League after thrashing Real Madrid at Anfield.

The Reds only needed to hang on to their 1-0 lead from the first leg to make it through.

But goals from Fernando Torres, Andrea Dossena, and two from Steven Gerrard gave them a 4-0 win over nine-times European champions Real.

Chelsea also made it through to the last eight, but the Blues didn't have such an easy time against Juventus.

They twice fought back from behind, before a late goal by Didier Drogba meant Tuesday's game ended in a 2-2 draw.

But it was all Chelsea needed to make it to the quarter finals as they already had a goal in hand from the first leg.
