The Ivorian was on target during a 6-1 win for Galatasaray, as Roberto Mancini's side bounced back from dropping points last week in emphatic fashion.
Drogba opened the scoring with a typically clinical header from a corner, before making it 3-0 under strange circumstances.
The ball had been thumped forward by the Galatasaray defence, before an opposition defender headed it straight to the 35-year-old, who was then through on goal. Drogba rounded the goalkeeper with ease and the rest was history.
And he was at it again for the fourth and fifth goals, breaking forward before crossing the ball across the box to twice register an assist for himself.
Chelsea should be wary, then, as the Ivorian clearly has the ability to cause the Blues some damage when Galatasaray travel to Stamford Bridge for the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.
But Drogba wasn't the only to impress in the Turkish league clash, with Wesley Sneijder playing a sublime pass for Gala's second, while also scoring his side's sixth. Mancini's men only conceded, meanwhile, after the majority of the team had stopped play, expecting the referee to have awarded them a free kick.
