By Caroline Cheese

2158: I'm so tired, I'm seeing Bayern Munich goals in front of my eyes. Let the goalfest continue tomorrow when Jonathan Stevenson returns from his obscenely long break (about four days) to take the live text chair. It's been an absolute pleasure. Bye.

2156: Ariel Ibagaza scores one and sets up another as 2006 semi-finalists Villarreal achieve what their illustrious compatriots at Real Madrid failed to do by reaching the quarter-finals. Panathinaikos beat Werder Bremen and Inter Milan in the group stage and were favourites to go through after the 1-1 draw in the first leg.

2152: Bayern Munich's 12-1 aggregate win over sorry Sporting is the biggest margin of victory in Champions League history.

2147: And what about Chelsea? Hardly a vintage performance by the Blues in Turin, but you can't fault the character. Juventus, like Madrid, are left to concentrate on an uphill struggle in the league.

2145: "I don't know what you did to have 19 goals scored tonight but can you do the same for tomorrow night please? True entertainment tonight!"
Ryan in Leeds, via text on 81111

2143: "Liverpool categorically thumped Madrid tonight. I've not seen a more convincing performance all season from them. I just wish they'd play like that in the league!"

2138: Madrid were poor, yes. But that must be Liverpool's best performance of the season. There was never any question of them sitting on the 1-0 lead, attacking the Spanish giants with pace from the off. Fernando Torres, who endured such misery against Madrid as an Atletico player, was outstanding. We think that's Madrid's biggest ever defeat in the Champions League. And Steven Gerrard has scored more goals in the competition since 2006 than any other player with 16.

2136: FULL-TIME Juventus 2-2 Chelsea (agg 2-3)

2136: FULL-TIME Liverpool 4-0 Real Madrid (agg 5-0)

2134: Chance for Juliano Belletti to put the icing on the cake for Chelsea, but he delays too long and can't get his shot away.

2134: FULL-TIME Panathinaikos 1-2 Villarreal (agg 2-3)

2134: FULL-TIME Bayern Munich 7-1 Sporting (agg 12-1)

2133: "I'm getting the feeling Bayern are safe now."

2131: "Fernando Torres departed to a rapturous ovation - richly-deserved after an all-round performance of the highest calibre. Anfield is in celebratory mood now, and for all the debate about Liverpool's credentials in the Premier League, they have proved again tonight that they will take some stopping in the Champions League. Real have been wretched, but that must not be allowed to take the gloss of an outstanding Liverpool display."
BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Anfield

2130: GOAL Liverpool 4-0 Real Madrid (agg 5-0)
Liverpool take advantage of some sizeable holes in the Madrid defence as Javier Mascherano crosses from the right for Andrea Dossena to heap further humiliation on the visitors.

2130: GOAL Bayern Munich 7-1 Sporting (agg 12-1)
Thomas Muller taps home easily at the death to complete the rout for Bayern and send Sporting home thoroughly embarrassed.

2127: Didier Drogba has now scored four goals in his last five games. Another boost for Chelsea as Ricardo Carvalho prepares to come on as a late sub.

2124: GOAL Juventus 2-2 Chelsea (agg 2-3)
That should settle the nerves. Chelsea make the extra man count, counter-attacking at pace. Michael Ballack plays in Juliano Belletti on the right who squares for Didier Drogba to slide in and put Chelsea within touching distance of the quarter-finals. A dramatic silence falls over the Stadio Olimpico in Turin.

2123: GOAL Bayern Munich 6-1 Sporting (agg 11-1)
Miroslav Klose is brought down from behind in the area by Pedro Silva and dusts himself off to place his penalty into the bottom right corner. That strike pulls the German level with Steven Gerrard at the top of the goal scoring charts with his seventh strike in this year's Champions League.

2121: They are still going at Anfield. Raul heads over at the far post when he should probably have hit the target.

2121: A final change from Juventus, who have all the momentum with 11 minutes remaining. Amauri replaces David Trezeguet.

2115: GOAL Juventus 2-1 Chelsea (agg 2-2)
Oh my goodness, it's all going off. Juliano Belletti jumps in the wall with both arms in the air and the ball thumps into him. Chelsea's players are absolutely furious as the referee gives the pen, and the ref consults with his linesman before confirming the spot-kick. Alessandro del Piero keeps his cool, sending Petr Cech the wrong way with his penalty. Chelsea are still going through as it stands, but the home crowd sense there could be more goals...

2115: PENALTY TO JUVENTUS

2113: GOAL Bayern Munich 5-1 Sporting (agg 10-1)
Bayern captain Mark van Bommel shows wonderful control inside the box to bring down a high ball down and poke home to make it give Bayern a second successive five-goal haul against Sporting.

2112: RED CARD Juventus
Giorgio Chiellini takes the ball and a whole lot of Didier Drogba. Play continues but the referee has got a long memory and as soon as the ball goes out of play, the Juve defender receives a second yellow card.

2112: GOAL Panathinaikos 1-2 Villarreal (agg 2-3)
Ariel Ibagaza is allowed to run 60 yards with the ball - he picks out Jose Llorente with a neat pass and Llorente cracks home from 12 yards.

2111: Didier Drogba gets a rather unnecessary yellow card for tugging back Sebastian Giovinco.

2110: "Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez must surely consider removing Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres from the action soon, preserving their energy for what will be a sterner test at Manchester United on Saturday. Real have been as bad as Liverpool have been good - there will be no comeback of any kind so it's time to look forward to Old Trafford."
BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Anfield

2107: Petr Cech makes a magnificent leap to flick away David Trezeguet's header. Juliano Belletti replaces Michael Essien.

2106: Another change at Anfield as defender Fabio Cannavaro is replaced by midfielder Rafael van der Vaart.

2104: Petr Cech is booked for handling outside the box under pressure from Alex del Piero. Del Piero fires in the free-kick which comes out to Sebastian Giovinco, who blasts wastefully high.

2103: The home crowd in Turin don't like that much. Goalscorer Vincenzo Iaquinta comes off to be replaced by Sebastian Giovinco. A substitution at Anfield too as Lucas replaces Xabi Alonso. Under normal circumstances, that wouldn't be all that popular with the Reds fans but I'm sure they won't mind tonight.

2101: Chance for Juve. Alessandro del Piero is free for a far-post header from the right-wing cross but heads straight at Petr Cech.

2057: GOAL Panathinaikos 1-1 Villarreal (agg 2-2)
Giorgios Karagounis swings in a corner from the left and the Yellow Submarine's defence watches as Vangelos Mantzios swoops in to head home from six yards.

2056: Crisp, flowing passing move from Liverpool, Ryan Babel dummying and Dirk Kuyt backheeling for Steven Gerrard, whose low shot is well saved by Iker Casillas.

2055: "Ryan Babel is not flavour of the month with Liverpool's fans - but all is forgiven as his left-wing cross sets up Steven Gerrard for a crisp finish. Any more of this and Juande Ramos might as well throw reserve keeper Jerzy Dudek on for a sentimental reunion with The Kop. Lots of adulation for Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez also. Anfield's crowd giving him the respect he feels others do not. Make no mistake, the Champions League is his playground."
BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Anfield

2054: Steven Gerrard's goal not only means that Liverpool are tantalisingly close to the quarter-finals, it also makes him top scorer in the Champions League with seven.

2053: Sergio Ramos crosses from the right and Raul gets his foot to it ahead of Pepe Reina but can't control it. A rare chance for Madrid.

2050: GOAL Panathinaikos 0-1 Villarreal (agg 1-2)
Guiseppe Rossi plays in Joan Capdevila on the left who pulls the ball back for Ariel Ibagaza to smash home from the edge of the box.

2049: GOAL Liverpool 3-0 Real Madrid (agg 4-0)
Ryan Babel with the cross but it's all about the finish from Steven Gerrard , celebrating his 100th appearance in European competition with a spectacular volley past Iker Casillas. That is surely that.

2047: No surprise that Madrid are making a change as Marcelo comes on, but quite surprising that it's Arjen Robben that makes way. And we're off and running everywhere.

2044: "Is it possible for the officials to end proceedings for the Bayern v Sporting match? I know we all love goals, but frankly Sporting's defence is a bad advertisement for the Portuguese league."

2042: "Re 2034: At least Jon Obi's got stuck in, won the ball and passed it to Chelsea players. More than can be said for Ballack."
IlCucchiaio on 606

2040: Let's see what Danny the Stat has to say about it all... "Sheesh. Even me, Danny the Stat, had trouble keeping up with all the twists and turns there. While we all take five, let me simply explain that Michael Essien has marked his first start in six months with a whopper of a Player Rater score of 8.75. Double delight for the lad. But even he cannot touch Fernando Torres , who has a credibility-straining 9.34. There's a word for that score - crikey-a-mundo. Or is that three words? Get involved."
Player Rater

2037: "A first 45 minutes that could hardly have gone any better for Liverpool. Real were the side that needed a goal but Liverpool started superbly and improved. Real, in contrast, look a pale shadow of their previous sides who have ruled Europe. Juande Ramos will have to produce something a bit special to revive this - his problem is that Real do not look capable of putting any sustained pressure on Liverpool."
BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Anfield

2034: "Juve were the better aside for 35 minutes, Michael Ballack and Jon Mikel Obi in particular are having very poor games. But the entire Chelsea team were furious about the goal being disallowed and Frank Lampard took his anger out on the ball with a 35-yard strike which led to the goal."
Pat Nevin at BBC 5 Live

2032: HALF-TIME Liverpool 2-0 Real Madrid (agg 3-0)

2032: HALF-TIME Bayern Munich 4-1 Sporting (agg 9-1)

2032: HALF-TIME Juventus 1-1 Chelsea (agg 1-2)

2032: HALF-TIME Panathinaikos 0-0 Villarreal (agg 1-1)

2031: GOAL Juventus 1-1 Chelsea (agg 1-2)
Gianluigi Buffon pushes Frank Lampard's volley onto the underside of the bar and Michael Essien gets to the loose ball first to stab home his first goal since last April.

2029: Chelsea think they have scored - and they might be right. They win a fortunate free-kick for handball against Tiago and Didier Drogba attempts to squeeze it in at the near post. Gianluigi Buffon gets two hands on it but looks to take it over the line, but...

2028: Javier Mascherano picks up a careless booking for smashing the ball away after a Xabi Alonso foul.

2027: GOAL Bayern Munich 4-1 Sporting (agg 9-1)
It is raining goals at the Allianz Arena, Bastian Schweinsteiger strokes home under no pressure from the edge of the six-yard-box.

2027: GOAL Bayern Munich 3-1 Sporting (agg 8-1)
There's a glimmer of hope for Sporting? Well maybe not but one-time Everton target Joao Moutinho shows why he is so highly rated as he rifles a right footed effort into the top corner from 20 yards-out.

2026: A Jose Bosingwa free-kick is cleared only to Nicolas Anelka, whose mis-hit volley is so mis-hit, it goes out for a throw-in. Chelsea not at the races.

2023: GOAL Bayern Munich 3-0 Sporting (agg 8-0)
Things go from bad to worse for Sporting. Anderson Polga rifles an effort past the goalkeeper from six yards out, trouble is it is his own goalkeeper.

2020: Juve are in control of proceedings in Turin without creating all that many clearcut chances, as Chelsea struggle to keep hold of the ball.

2019: GOAL Bayern Munich 2-0 Sporting (agg 7-0)
Route one football from Bayern has Sporting's defence struggling to clear, Lucas Podolski pops up in the confusion to put an overhead kick into the open net for his second of the game.

2018: "Real are in complete disarray here - although they are complaining bitterly about the officials for both Liverpool goals. The brutal truth is they are being run ragged from back to front. Anfield is bouncing and all the years of frustration Fernando Torres suffered at the hands of Real when he was the symbol of their less illustrious rivals Atletico appear to be bubbling to the surface as he wreaks havoc on the Spanish defence. Liverpool are playing at an astonishingly high tempo and Real are finding impossible to find any sort of rhythm or order."
BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Anfield

2015: Wesley Sneijder forces Pepe Reina into his first meaningful save, the Liverpool keeper pushing a free-kick around the post.

2013: GOAL Liverpool 2-0 Real Madrid (agg 3-0)
That is double harsh. Gabriel Heinze is penalised for handball by referee Frank De Bleeckere - despite the ball coming off his shoulder in a tussle with Alvaro Arbeloa. Steven Gerrard buries the penalty, and though both goals have been controversial, you can't honestly say Liverpool don't deserve this lead.

2012: PENALTY TO LIVERPOOL

2011: Steven Gerrard catches Sergio Ramos late and gets an inevitable yellow card.

2010: "Will someone let me know when Real Madrid turn up?"

2009: Fernando Torres turns Sergio Ramos this way and that, creating space for the cross from the left. Steven Gerrard stretches for the volley but Iker Casillas saves.

2008: Martin Skrtel gets a flicked header onto a Fabio Aurelio cross and Iker Casillas has to scramble across his goal to stop it sneaking into the far corner. Nothing much from Madrid so far - apart from a whole lot of frustration. Very poor.

2004: Real Madrid centre-back Pepe's night just got a little bit worse after being given a yellow for dissent.

2004: GOAL Juventus 1-0 Chelsea (agg 1-1)
Davide Trezeguet chests the ball down and hooks it on for Vincenzo Iaquinta to run on and finish crisply past Petr Cech. Game on.

2000: GOAL Liverpool 1-0 Real Madrid (agg 2-0)
Anfield erupts, but there is more than a touch of controversy about that. Fernando Torres chests down a long ball - but Pepe looks favourite to clear until the striker puts his hand on his shoulder and appears to drag him down. The ball breaks for Dirk Kuyt who squares for Torres to slot in.

1958: Early blow for Juventus as Pavel Nedved is forced off with an injury. Hasan Salihamidzic is the man to come on.

1957: "Real Madrid coach Juande Ramos has few cherished memories of England other than his Carling Cup win with Spurs - and he is already pacing the Anfield technical area showing signs of concern. Little wonder as Liverpool's opening surge has threatened to sweep Real away. Fernando Torres entered this game under an injury cloud, but has started in blistering fashion, as have Liverpool."
BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Anfield

1954: A moment of calm at Anfield after a frenetic start, Madrid with Iker Casillas to thank for the score still being 0-0 on the night. Fernando Torres looks a danger every time he gets the ball.

1952: Pepe brings down Steven Gerrard as the midfielder looks to play a one-to on the edge of the box with Fernando Torres. Gerrard's free-kick is low, straight at Iker Casillas.

1952: GOAL Bayern Munich 1-0 Sporting (agg 6-0)
Germany international Lucas Podolski finds a yard on the edge of the area and loops his left-footed shot over Rui Patricio. Any thoughts Sporting might have had about getting back into this game - gone.

1948: I think Torres fancies a goal tonight. The Spaniard's deft flick from Steven Gerrard's pass beats the defender but Iker Casillas pulls off an excellent save as the striker tries to finish low into the corner. From the corner, the Madrid keeper is forced to tip Javier Mascherano's ferocious volley onto the bar. Fabulous start from Liverpool.

1946: Fernando Torres tries to take on the entire Madrid defence - and succeeds in winning a corner. In nine Madrid derbies, Torres did not taste victory and scored only once.

1945: The games kick off almost simultaneously. Lovely.

1943: "Re 1920: I won a hundred quid off my dad when he gave me 100-1 odds on Liverpool to win the Champions League final in 2005 at half time. Happy days."
Jamie via text on 81111

1941: Scarves aloft all around Anfield for You'll Never Walk Alone. The Liverpool fans give it another rousing rendition as the players come out of the tunnel. What a night.

1939: "England coach Fabio Capello has just arrived in the Anfield directors' box to watch his former club Real Madrid - and cast an eye over the form and fitness of Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard. Great atmosphere inside Anfield now, with a warm welcome for the hero of Liverpool's 2005 Champions League victory against AC Milan on penalties, goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek, who is a substitute for Real Madrid."
BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Anfield

1937: "I fancy Juve to beat Chelsea. There's so much Champions League experience in their team, I think they'll play the clever game and sneak it. Early equaliser, late winner."
A neutral via text on 81111

1934: Is time going backwards? Please, 1945 GMT, hurry up. I may explode. Incidentally, England are doing OK in the cricket. I will not hold it against you if you nip over to Mark Mitchener's live text until 1944 GMT, when I absolutely insist you return.
Live text - West Indies v England

1933: "I hope Liverpool aren't relying on their bench tonight. Ineffective is one word to sum it up. At the beginning of the season, I had this warped thought that Liverpool finally had strength in depth."

1930: "I took the tour of Stamford Bridge last year, and a Juve fan bartender at the bar said we'd play Juventus next season and lose. Prophecy?"
Darran, Camberley, via text on 81111

1928: Tomorrow brings the excitement of Roma v Arsenal and Man Utd v Inter Milan. The Gunners' preparations suffered a setback today when their plane developed a fault and they had to charter a new one, meaning they won't arrive until 9pm. Arsene Wenger missed his scheduled press conference, which means he could incur a fine - which seems super harsh to me.

1924: "A player I'm really looking forward to seeing Pavel Nedved. When you see him away from home, you sometimes wonder what all the fuss is about. At home, he completely changes. He's got fantastic vision."
Pat Nevin on BBC 5 Live

1920: "Re 1916: Not sure but it's 1000/1 for Sporting to win the title now!"

1916: "What odds can I get on Sporting overturning their 5-0 deficit?"
Mark, Southport, via text on 81111

1913: Juventus have lost seven successive away legs in the Champions League knockout stages. However, their last home defeat in the competition was in March 2004.

1911: "Liverpool and Madrid are playing similar systems. Seven or eight times out of 10, Liverpool will win that midfield battle and if they do tonight, they'll go through."
Mark Lawrenson on BBC 5 Live

1909: Bayern Munich v Sporting
Bayern Munich: Butt, Lell, Lucio, Van Buyten, Lahm, Schweinsteiger, Van Bommel, Ottl, Ze Roberto, Klose, Podolski. Subs: Rensing, Oddo, Breno, Demichelis, Sosa, Muller, Yilmaz.
Sporting: Rui Patricio, Silva, Tonel, Anderson Polga, Veloso, Adrien Silva, Vukcevic, Bruno Pereirinha, Joao Moutinho, Derlei, Djalo. Subs: Tiago, Caneira, Ronny, Abel, Daniel Carrico, Izmailov, Tiui.

1907: "Hiddink's gone for an ultra compact midfield tonight to protect his 1-0 lead and look to nick an away goal. I can see it being very very tight in Turin."
Nick, London, via text on 81111

1905: TEAMS Panathinaikos v Villarreal
Panathinaikos: Galinovic, Nilsson, Vyntra, Sarriegi, Wawrzyniak, Silva, Simao, Karagounis, Gabriel, Salpingidis, Mantzios. Subs: Tzorvas, David, Spiropoulos, Mattos, Christodoulopoulos, Ivanschitz, Rukavina.
Villarreal: Diego Lopez, Angel, Fuentes, Godin, Capdevila, Santi Cazorla, Senna, Eguren, Ibagaza, Rossi, Nihat. Subs: Viera, Javi Venta, Cygan, Pires, Fernandez, Bruno, Llorente.

1903: And, by the way, Madrid have trailed going into the away leg of a European tie five times, and only once turned it around. That was in the second round of the 1970/71 Cup Winners' Cup against FC Wacker Innsbruck.

1901: Liverpool have won only two of their last 12 European matches at Anfield against Spanish opponents. Of course, they don't need to win tonight and the pressure is all on Madrid, who are looking to avoid going out at this stage for the fifth season in a row.

1858: "Real Madrid fans are making plenty of noise in the corner of Anfield that they occupy - they also gathered around the team bus to give their players a rousing welcome. They do not appear to have given this one up and the feeling even among some Liverpool supporters is that there is plenty of life left in this one yet. Liverpool have been given a massive lift with the return of Fernando Torres - but just how fit is the talismanic striker?"
BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Anfield

1856: "Re 1825: the whole of north London is cheering for the Greens tonight. Trust me, there'll be fireworks tonight when Pana go through!"
"Mad Boy" Mario via text on 81111

1854: TEAM NEWS Juventus v Chelsea
Juventus must do without former Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko who has broken a bone in his foot and they make four changes in total from the first leg, with Claudio Marchisio, Zdenek Grygera and strikers David Trezeguet and Vincenzo Iaquinta coming in. Chelsea hand a first start since August to Michael Essien, and he and Nicolas Anelka replace Florent Malouda and Salomon Kalou.

1852: TEAM NEWS Liverpool v Real Madrid
Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has overcome an ankle injury to start. Right-back Alvaro Arbeloa is also fit after a hamstring problem but a similar injury keeps right-sided midfielder Yossi Benanyoun out. Dirk Kuyt will slot into his position, while Ryan Babel replaces the suspended Albert Riera on the left of midfield. Real Madrid start with attacking midfielder Wesley Sneijder ahead of Marcelo in the only change for them from the first leg.

1851: The thinking is that Jon Mikel Obi will play in front of Chelsea's back four behind the midfield three of Michael Ballack, Frank Lampard and Michael Essien.

1848: TEAMS Juventus v Chelsea
Juventus: Buffon, Grygera, Mellberg, Chiellini, Molinaro, Tiago, Marchisio, Nedved, Iaquinta, Del Piero, Trezeguet. Subs: Manninger, Zebina, Salihamidzic, Amauri, Poulsen, Giovinco, Ariaudo.
Chelsea: Cech, Bosingwa, Terry, Alex, Ashley Cole, Mikel, Ballack, Essien, Lampard, Drogba, Anelka. Subs: Hilario, Carvalho, Malouda, Deco, Kalou, Belletti, Mancienne.

1845: TEAMS Liverpool v Real Madrid
Liverpool: Reina, Arbeloa, Skrtel, Carragher, Aurelio, Alonso, Mascherano, Kuyt, Gerrard, Babel, Torres. Subs: Cavalieri, Dossena, Hyypia, Lucas, Ngog, Spearing, Kelly.
Real Madrid: Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Cannavaro, Pepe, Heinze, Robben, Lassana Diarra, Gago, Sneijder, Raul, Higuain. Subs: Dudek, Saviola, Marcelo, Guti, Metzelder, Miguel Torres, Van der Vaart.

1841: We also hear reports that Michael Essien and Nicolas Anelka are back in Chelsea's team.

1839: And there's more: Steven Gerrard also starts after missing the first leg while Ryan Babel replaces the injured Yossi Benayoun.

1838: Breaking team news from Anfield... Fernando Torres starts.

1837: "Essien to start in place of Kalou. Anelka in place of Malouda. Otherwise same team."

1827: And then there's Bayern Munich v Sporting as Jurgen Klinsmann's side look to cling on to a 5-0 lead. Er...

1825: And what about Panathinaikos v Villarreal? A match finely poised at 1-1. The Green Machine versus the Yellow Submarine.

1822: If Liverpool v Real Madrid, five-times champions v nine-times champions, doesn't float your boat, then I worry for you, but we've also got Juventus v Chelsea. The Blues have a 1-0 lead but the Italian giants have won 10 of their last 13 European matches at the Stadio Olimpico, drawing the other three.

1815: I can't imagine there's a single person out there who isn't inspired by tonight's games, but just in case, I quote from Real Madrid's magnificently biased website: "Nights like this are reserved only for the greats. 1945 hours, Liverpool and Real Madrid, Anfield. A roar in the stands, a dream in the air, and a sole objective on the pitch. No fear. Only football and ambition. If anyone can win this battle, it is Real Madrid."
