Napoli vs Real Madrid

Napoli vs Real Madrid – Real Madrid travel to Stadio San Paolo to face Napoli in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie on 7th March, Tuesday.

Napoli finished as group leaders after facing the likes of Dynamo Kyiv, Benfica and Besiktas in the group stage while Borussia Dortmund’s excellent European form in the first half of the season meant Real Madrid were relegated to the second position in the group stage.

Napoli took an early lead in the first leg at Santiago Bernabeau last month but eventually lost 3-1 to Real Madrid.
