Chelsea staged a thrilling comeback to beat Steaua Bucharest 3-1 and reach the Europa League quarterfinals, but Inter Milan failed to advance despite a plucky second-leg recovery of its own on a breathless night of last-16 action on Thursday.
Second-half goals by John Terry and Fernando Torres helped Chelsea, the reigning European champion, squeeze past Steaua 3-2 on aggregate at Stamford Bridge.
Trailing 3-0 from the first leg, Inter thrashed Tottenham 4-1 at the San Siro for a 4-4 aggregate scoreline but exited on the away-goals rule, with Emmanuel Adebayor's extra-time strike proving decisive.
Newcastle completed an English clean sweep into the last eight thanks to Papiss Cisse's stoppage-time winner against Anzhi Makhachkala, while Lazio, Benfica, Rubin Kazan, Basel and Fenerbahce were the other teams to progress.
