Samuel Eto'o scored for his fourth different Champions League club as Chelsea beat Schalke 3-0 on Wednesday to close in on the knockout phase.
The former Barcelona, Inter Milan and Mallorca striker netted a fortuitous opener for the Group E leaders in the 31st minute. Goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand's clearance was intercepted and the ball bounced off Eto'o's shin into the net.
Eto'o had struggled to display his goal-scoring instinct since joining from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala in August, but he took his Chelsea tally to three in the 54th minute. Willian slipped the ball through and Eto'o clipped a shot past Hildebrand.
After Eto'o made way for Demba Ba, the Senegal striker soon opened his account for the season in the 83rd to complete a comfortable win for Chelsea.
