Inter destroy Chelsea dreams of European glory, and CSKA Moscow makes history by eliminating Sevilla

Former Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho guided his powerful Inter Milan to a 1-0 win over Chelsea FC. The 3-1 aggregate score allows the Italian team to qualify for the next stage of the Champions League and leaves the English club with a new dissapointing season ending in Europe.

It was not going to be easy for Mourinho to face his old team, a club where he was able to lift so many trophies. But after his victory, he said: "Today I was the enemy, and today the enemy won".

The Portuguese coach celebrated calmly when his African star Samuel Eto'o scored the first and only goal of the match, after fellow striker Diego Milito had missed the chance to seal Chelsea's fate even earlier.

In Tuesday's other game for the round of 16, CSKA Moscow surprised everybody by defeating the Spanish powerhouse Sevilla. Tomas Necid and Japanese player Keisuke Honda scored for the Russian team.
