1 / 8th final of the Champions League
Real Madrid-Napoli: 3-1
Goals: Benzema (19th), Kroos (49th), Casemiro (54th); Insignia (8th)

The good series of Real Madrid in the Champions League continues. The Merengues are only two games to align a year unbeaten in this competition. This Wednesday, against Naples, the meeting had begun badly for the men of Zinedine Zidane, but they knew how to recover. And in the end they signed a success by two goals away which is good to take before the trip to San Paolo.

Bale, Aubameyang and the fastest players in the world

It did not take much to make the final reading different. A few centimeters maybe. Those who put José Callejon in offside position on his resumption of the lead to the 81st. At 3-2, it would have been the Italians who would have found themselves in favorable ballotage. The gang at Sarri would not have stolen it, because for a good half, it has hampered its host of the day. And in the second period, despite the sharp retreat on the field, she only lost two strikes from outside the box, signed Toni Kroos (49th) and Casemiro (54th).

Benzema returns to top level

The German placed a shot of the right foot in the middle of the race following a shrinking recess of Cristiano Ronaldo. As for the Brazilian, he lifted the entire Bernabeu by scoring a nice volley after a bad clearance from the opposing defense. A 3-1, the Madriders were mainly applied to defend well. Sergio Ramos's injury-outing could have penalized them, but Pepe showed that lack of competition was not a problem for him. On the transalpine side, Arkadiusz Milik, back after a long absence, hoped to play the saviors, but his teammates were then running out of juice to attempt another illegal revolt.


The Italian vice-champion clearly missed his chance in the first half by keeping the advantage to the mark for only ten minutes. Lorenzo Insigne took advantage of Keylor Navas's too-advanced position to open the scoring, but Karim Benzema quickly responded with an angry head-butt from a Carvajal center. By finding the fault, the former Lyonnais surpassed Thierry Henry as top French scorer in this competition. And he could have taken even more off in the 42nd minute if he did not find the post after winning his face to face with Reina. However, his team-mates will not be rigorous in view of his overall performance which was very convincing.
