Clean sheet for Čech in 100th Champions League game helps Chelsea advance

Czech goalkeeper Petr Čech made his 100th appearance in soccer’s Champions League with Chelsea on Tuesday night. The 31-year-old kept a clean sheet as the Londoners beat Turkish club Galatasaray 2:0 for a 3:1 aggregate victory in the round of 16 tie. Čech’s penalty saves in a shootout at the end of the 2012 Champions League final helped Chelsea lift the club football’s most prestigious trophy for the first time ever.
