Chelsea fought back from first-leg defeat to overcome Napoli in extra-time and Real Madrid met much less resistance against CSKA Moscow as the line-up for the Champions League quarterfinals was completed on Wednesday.

Ivanovic’s strike on 105 minutes gave Chelsea a 5-4 aggregate success following a 4-1 win at Stamford Bridge in the last-16 second leg, meaning they will be England’s only representatives in the last eight.

Real Madrid also advanced with a 4-1 home win over CSKA earned a 5-2 aggregate victory and kept coach Jose Mourinho on course to become the only manager to win the trophy with three clubs.

Gonzalo Higuain poked home Kaka’s pass on 26 minutes and Cristiano Ronaldo’s second-half strike slipped through the fingers of goalkeeper Sergei Chepchugov before Karim Benzema and Ronaldo netted either side of Zoran Tosic for the Russians.
