Two more teams booked their place in the Quarter Finals of the UEFA Champions League 2011 as the second legs in a pair of Round of 16 matches was played on the evening of Wednesday 9th March 2011.
Shalke 04 3-1 Valencia (Shalke 04 win 4-2 on Aggregate)
Having shared a 1-1 draw in the opening leg, it was all to play for in Germany in this match, and the visitors silenced the hosts on 17 minutes, when Costa found the net.
Farfan levelled the tie on the night, and on aggregate with a goal five minutes before half time.
In the second half, Gavranovic put Shalke in front after 52 minutes and, with the visitors searching for an equaliser that would put them through to the next phase, Farfan added his second on 90+4 minutes.
Tottenham 0-0 AC Milan (Tottenham Hotspur win 1-0 on Aggregate)
Tottenham defended for their lives in their home match with AC Milan as the visitors threw everything at the London club to no avail, particularly in the first half. Central defensive pairing Michael Dawson and William Gallas had strong games for Spurs, though they will be thankful that Sandro put in an excellent shift in midfield to keep Milan chances to a minimum.
Milan had the bulk of the chances in a match which was otherwise reasonably even, though Spurs could also have scored from some good possession in the second half.
With the 0-0 result, Tottenham go through thanks to Peter Crouch’s goal in the 1st leg at the San Siro: Spurs win 1-0 on aggregate.
